I remember being away from God for about 18 months after I first got saved in the late 70ties. What was so amazing was during that time I never stopped listening to this one Christian artist. Her songs permeated my hard heart at the time and probably kept me from going off the deep end of despair.
I had a great budding career as a radio news director in Las Vegas for a CBS and later, an ABC station. But I kept looking for love in all the wrong places. However, as God's word flowed through this lady's music, it was like a fine thin knife that continually scraped the hardness off of my heart. Her music was my connection point to the Lord, as backslidden as I was. Musicians say that a melody will bypass your brain and go straight to your heart. I believe it, especially one with anointed words from heaven. When I finally did return to the Lord, it was a strong continual flow as I stayed in the Word daily and let Him talk to me through it. His word is His mouthpiece and He talks to you every time you open it up.
God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defense, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God's Word. We can't get away from it no matter what. Hebrews 4:12 - MSG
