“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? So one hundred worshipers meeting together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be were they to become “unity” conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship. Social religion is perfected when private religion is purified.”~ A.W. Tozer
The Lord first spoke to me concerning the tuning fork, one year ago around this very time. In fact, he used to the above quote from A.W. Tozer to introduce the concept to me and began to expound from there.
In my research, I found that there was a watch that utilized the tuning fork. It was instrumental in powering the time keeper. Interestingly, tuning forks are used in medicine to assess a patient’s hearing and are also a mechanism in radar guns to measure speed.
David Timms makes mention of A.W. Tozer’s quote in his book, The Power of Blessing and sure enough, while I was enjoying reading, the Lord quickened this in me again, to such a degree this time that I couldn’t shake the idea that I had to buy one. So the next day, I went out and purchased a tuning fork. Not because it’s magical or carries some power in and of itself but because it represents Holy Spirit to me. It serves as a reminder to set my eyes and my ears on Him. Father, by His Spirit, accesses our hearing and is calibrating us to Him. It’s time to tune in.
That tuning fork, is prophecying to me.
