The Conductor’s Baton


Scripture Focus: Micah 7:7

Conductors…the more expressive the more impressive he or she is to watch. In orchestra the conductor will take creative license with a music score and tailor it to fit the musicians he has to work with. Each phrase of music evokes a feeling that the conductor wants translated to the audience. We are to feel the music. But in order to do this rehearsals are required. One of the first questions asked is “can we see him?”, if we cannot, we will miss cues, or cut offs. This is so important when playing with a large group. We can’t trust what we are hearing right beside us. Since the conductor stands slightly above, he is able to see and hear from a different point of view. He can see who: has lost their place, is bowing in the wrong direction, isn’t focused on the music, or is not playing when they should. The conductor keeps everyone together, each section playing through their own notes balancing a perfect harmony. 

Can we see God? Are we looking to God when we feel out of place? Desiring to be a part of His great collaborative purpose is how we get back in sync. We know we can always trust and believe Him, we need to prove He can trust us with the sound He wants to hear and see. How are we allowing the Great Masterful Conductor to orchestrate our lives?
