A Communication Problem
  One of the current topics of interest within the political class in our country concerns communication. The idea has been put forward that the issue is not policy, the real problem is communication. "If we just communicate our ideas better, people will support them", is the mantra we hear. This tendency is present across the entire spectrum of political persuasion and party affiliation.

Unfortunately, it is also prevalent among believers, especially in the context of God's will. When a Scriptural truth is unpopular, and we would rather not be held accountable to it, we can be tempted to obscure the issue. With high sounding words of intent, we proclaim our desire to 'find God's will' for our lives. We sigh inwardly, then we go our way, having justified ourselves that we are doing 'what we can'. The unspoken position many of us take is that whenever God communicates his will adequately, we will be more than happy to comply.

The problem is, unlike a political party, God is perfect. Together with the Father and Son, the Holy Spirit is fully God. It is the Holy Spirit's role to communicate with us, and he always does so perfectly. Therefore, if there is a breakdown in communication, the fault lies in us, not in God. We are choosing not to listen. Of course, it often suits our natural desires to avoid hearing anything from God that might inconvenience us. Because we are unwilling to adjust our lives to what God's Word teaches, we continuously say we are 'seeking God's will', instead of just doing what the Bible says. The Psalmist David expressed this tendency in his own life, "Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law." (Ps. 119:109).

The Apostle Peter uses a phrase to describe the attitude of some unbelievers. He says they "deliberately forget' Scriptural truth (2 Peter 3:5). This is also true of many believers. When confronted with Scriptural truth that requires an adjustment in our lives, we choose to deliberately forget what God has clearly taught in his Word. In fact, the Holy Spirit may be speaking to you right now. Will you hear him and obey?  Or will you continue in a spiritual 'holding pattern', all the while telling yourself you are seeking God's will for your life? Either way, you are making the choice.     Pastor Daniel Rhodes
