Lately, I have been feeling extremely exhausted, of what? I am not really sure. The other day I woke feeling upset because of how bad my sleep was. I went downstairs and told Pastor about how I was feeling, and his response was “go upstairs and listen to the music you know that will relax you and inspire you.” I did as he told me, and I began to listen to one of my favorite songs in instrumental form. I laid on my bed and began to relax and meditate on the Lord and my life and the things I needed to fix and before I knew it, I was feeling much better. Since then, I have been listening to soft instrumental prayer music and my sleep has improved so much. Need I mention what I went through this week because it reminded me of Saul and how he needed David to play his harp for him so that way those demonic spirits that tormented him would leave him alone, and he would get peace The music we listen to has so much power and we really don’t take notice. I was listening to a brother talk about how the music of God today has become just for entertainment and does not really inspire us to look for the Lord, instead we listen to it because it has a good beat and we don’t notice that they leave out the most powerful name “Jesus” and they just talk about love and happiness, but who gives us that love? That happiness? Jesus does. The Christian stations have adopted the worldly station ways and we say “well this is better than listening to worldly music”, but why listen to something like that when you can find music that will motivate you, inspire you, encourage you towards Jesus, music that will move your spirit, music that will convict you, music that will bring peace unto your heavy burdened soul or music that will lift your spirit up when the enemy is trying to bring you down. 1 Samuel 16:23 says, “And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took a harp, and played with his hand: so, Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him.” The right kind of music can have power to break those demonic forces. There is a famous Sunday school song that says “O be careful little ears what you hear, O be careful little ears what you hear, there’s a Father up above and He’s looking down in love, So, be careful little ears what you hear.” I leave you with this, be careful what you listen to because it has power to edify you or destroy you.
