Sometimes in life we need to look inward and rid ourselves of the things preventing us from seeing all God has before us. I know I am guilty of letting the ice build up and when I try to clear it on my own...it requires double the effort. BUT if I seek help from the defroster, the ice begins to melt, and I can remove the ice without strain. It still requires work on my part yet it is a much easier task with a little help.
We tend to do this in our life too. We close our Bibles, stop attending church on Sunday, and withdraw from others. In the process, the chill of sin builds up on our heart. Once in awhile we'll say "I need to read my Bible more" or "Maybe I'll go to church" but we don't do it. Instead of tossing thoughts into the air, we need to call on Jesus for help.
"Lord, I know I've drifted away from you and I haven't been reading my Bible but I don't have time. Lord, help me to see the minutes nestled into my day that I can read a few Scripture verses. Lord, I can't do this alone. Help me, please."
God is the defroster for the sin on our heart. Just like your defrost is a part of your car, it doesn't work until you turn it on. God is there and ready to help, we only need call on Him.
Are you trying to do this thing called "life" on your own? How do you keep your "on" switch selected between you and God?
Look at your typical day, do you have five minutes to turn "on" your Heavenly Defroster? I pray you do.
