As important as the prayer of “Lord, let my rooster crow” is, an even more important prayer is, “Lord, please let me hear when my rooster crows.” 

Oh our rooster may crow all day and night but we fail to hear. Every born again child of God has a personal Rooster but do you even know Him or recognise His crow? 

Don’t go looking for some external chicken as a warning signal for sin. 

Our personal Rooster is the Holy Spirit who lives inside of us and the Word of God is His crow. That rooster didn’t become a talking chicken and say, “Wow, Peter, you of all people just denied your Jesus.” It simply did its natural thing and Peter remembered the Words of Jesus to him a few hours before. 

The Holy Spirit will simply do His natural thing to, “remind {us} of everything I have said to you” (John‬ ‭14:26‬). 

But how do you remember what you don’t know? The Holy Spirit isn’t going to read the Bible to us. He is there to teach and remind us of the things He’s taught us the onus is on us to, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God…

(2 Timothy‬ ‭2:15‬). 

When we continually forsake the Word of God or even fail to believe its Truth through obedience, our hearts become so hardened, our consciences so seared and the enticing music of the worlds’s allurement so loud, that when the gentle promptings of the Holy Spirit tug at our hearts, we fail to hear until that fearful thing we are warned about happens – “Do not quench the Spirit” (1 Thessalonians‬ ‭5:19‬). 

We ignore and ignore Him until finally, the same way He came – like the unknown movement of the wind – He also leaves. 

The terrible outcome of quenching the Spirit of God in our lives is “God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another” (‭‭Romans‬ ‭1:24‬). 

If there were things you were once convinced about to be completely wrong and against the will of God but now you’ve come around, saying because ‘God is love’, those things cannot be wrong, don’t think you’ve become enlightened. The very light of God might just have left your eyes. 

Yes, God promises never to leave nor forsake us but the same God said, “Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone” (Hosea 4:17). 

“So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: And they walked in their own counsel” (Psalm‬ ‭81:12‬). 

God is not some clingy weakling so helplessly in love with us and afraid to leave us. His holiness is His first priority and the reason why Hell exists and is filling up at double speed in our day more than ever. 

I, the writer, write these things with fear and trembling – “So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” (1 Corinthians‬ ‭10:12‬)

Please have mercy, Lord.
