Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
2 Kings 3:15
“But now bring me a harpist.” While the harpist was playing, the hand of the Lord came on Elisha.
Three kings from the lands of Israel, Judah, and Edom had come together to fight Moab. On the journey to where the Moabites lived, they ran out of water. They called on the prophet Elisha to give them a word. When Elisha arrived, he said, “Bring me a harpist.” As the harpist played, the hand of the Lord came upon Elisha and he prophesied exactly what would happen, and it did. The three kings were able to defeat the Moabites just as the prophet had said.
I’ve learned during the most stressful points of my life I need to get alone with the Lord and FOCUS. In order for this to happen, “Sometimes You Just Need A Song.” Seriously! When you begin to worship the Lord, the fog in your soul begins to clear, the other voices become silent, and momentarily you begin to hear the voice of heaven give direction. That melody, which reminds you of words, literally settles the stress you’re experiencing, and without realizing it you are dialed into the Lord. You are completely FOCUSED on Him. How did that happen? It happened with a song from heaven. The prophet knew this quite well. When these three kings came for help, his first response was, “Bring me a harpist. I’ve got to focus on the Lord.” Sure enough, as the song was played Elisha received the Word from heaven. Remember, “Sometimes You Just Need A Song.”
As I start this new day, I can tell You that I really need a song this AM. But You already knew that. Help me Lord. I’m desperate to focus on You. Amen
