Zeph. 3:17 – The Lord your God… will rejoice over you with singing
The Lord is singing over you right now. Bask in the romantic moment as He reveals what has been on His mind, all the wonderful thoughts about you
Ps. 139:17-18 – How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand…
What kind of song do you think He’s singing? What genre do you think it’s in? Listen to Him now and ask Him to let you hear a piece of it. Write down what you hear:
Mine: Listen to the fireflies; hear the song I sing. They may not make a sound, but I know it’s what you need. Don’t get overwhelmed in all the things you do; sit down and listen to My song that’s just for you.
Share in the comments below, and if you feel like an overachiever today, write out a lyrical response to Him.
Creative Christians: If you are totally abandoned to the will of God for your life, your abilities are just expressions of yourself to God. The stuff you don’t do out of strife, or competition, or as a discipline, but you do out of passion and desire for God – if someone rejects that, they are rejecting the Father.
God isn’t impressed by man, talent, or form; He is impressed with your heart. Maybe your worship style will become the form one day. You played the banjo and the fire fell, and now everyone plays the banjo; forms start from people seeking God. He’s not impressed with cds, music industry, art sales, or forms; He is impressed with the heart of His sons and daughters. Has strife and competition broken off of you, and are you free? Has rejection shut you down or do you still have a unique fingerprint?
We’re so independent in our culture, most of us can’t even choose what we like. Most people have to be told what they like. Break out of deception and realize that Father God is pleased with you, gave you freedom, creativity, and uniqueness. He loves those things, and you are not rejected by Him. Flowing, in the creative gifts He gave you, has purpose. Don’t let man shut that down. Flow creativity flow #JasonUpton
