The developing of an instrument requires first a vision and then a craftsman to begin the process. The craftsman not only sees the instrument through the vision but he knows the tune in which he or she seeks to achieve as an artist painting a picture. Sometimes during the construction process the craftsman has to tear down the instrument to start all over again but he never gives up on the God given dream or vision for he or she learns something in every attempt. Once he or she reaches the stage where the cords come into play this is where the senses must be developed and in tune to insure the proper sound of love that is to be shared in return.
As the strings are being placed into position and stretched to achieve their full potential this process often causes some to snap and to complain of their pain. Not all cords make the cut due to their own inner tension due to never learning the art of submission. Learning when to submit and when not to is a very wise process within the construction of an instrument of God that requires the unity of the people. This same process is displayed by the craftsman as well due to his or her own submission to the Lord.
We are not the craftsman for the craftsman is Jesus but we are to be an instrument of the Lord delivering the sounds of His praise. Within the instrument their are many different positions and the object is to find our particular position in order to hear the music of God that is being played. For an unbalanced instrument is an instrument without understanding and in order to have harmony we must first have unity…
