In the days before satellite radio and streaming music over your smart phone, there was good old AM radio. One of the features of AM radio was that the further you were away from the signal, the more static or fuzzy sounds you would hear. In the days before cable or satellite TV there was only broadcast TV with rabbit ears antennas that at times could give you a visual picture of static if you were too far from television broadcast towers. In terms of static in my spiritual journey, I have found the exact opposite to be true. The closer I seem to get to our Lord or to leading others to our Lord, then the static increases.
What I mean by this is that there are obstacles and hinderances that come up and make the journey seem impossible. I think for everyone in ministry, you should get used to the fact that the closer you get to God, or the times you are about to lead others to God, you are going to experience a lot of static.
Instead of striving for lives with less static, we should be humbled that our journey would encounter any static, for if we weren’t up to something holy, the devil wouldn’t be fighting us so hard. So instead of seeking no static at all, the next time you encounter static, keep going you are most likely up to something amazing!
