Sometimes while working on our computers the application or software we are working with, be it MS Word, PowerPoint etc. freezes and will not allow us to do anything, the application has frozen. In the title bar that runs along the top of the application you will see the message ‘Not Responding’. This can happen at some very inconvenient times. Just as how computer applications sometimes choose to stop responding to our commands we as Gods people sometimes stop responding to God. In Proverbs chapter 1: 23 - 33 God speaking through Solomon said: (NIV) “If you had responded to my rebuke, I would have poured out my heart to you and made my thoughts known to you. 24 But since you rejected me when I called and no-one gave heed when I stretched out my hand, 25 since you ignored all my advice and would not accept my rebuke, 26 I in turn will laugh at your disaster; I will mock when calamity overtakes you...” Sometimes we lose very important work because our computers decide to stop responding. Many times God is in the midst of doing something very important in us when suddenly we decide to stop responding to Him possibly thwarting what could have been a master piece of God. If we had recently saved our work we should be able to recover most of what was done before the freeze but if not hours of work could have gone down the drain. As with computers so it is with our Christian walk, it is important that we always remember to save.
