How do you like to wake up? Slowly or fast? To the beeping of an alarm clock, or sound of birds out the window, or music playing? The way I wake up does affect my day. How about you? For the past week I have woken up to a song of praise coming out of me automatically. What a way to wake up!
I did a fast search on how many references I could find about singing to God, and I found almost 150, and that was just one wording, so there must be more. The idea of singing out our hearts and praise was consistent and not just in the Psalms. But how do we get ourselves to a place of praise that flows? By focusing on Him! The more scripture we read, the more we pray and seek, we change our focus and align with him.
Luke 6:45 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart. (NLT)
The way most of us are used to hearing this passage is just the ending as; “out of the overflow of the heart, the mouth speaks.” (KJV) We are supposed to be building a treasury, a storage of good things and that will then flow out of us. If we are not flowing in those good things, what have we stored up?
This week look at your storage room. What have you stored up in your heart? Do you need to purge? Put some good stuff in there and let God clean out the old. May you all wake to a song of praise flowing out of you.
