Daily Devotion: Music Within

Bible Reading:  Colossians 3:1-17 

Key Verse: Verse 16 - “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”

Key Words: in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs

We read in the book of Ephesians, chapter 5 and verse 19, that when we are filled with the Spirit there will be a song in our heart.  That song would have to be either a psalm, hymn, or spiritual song, or a combination of all three.

Time magazine ran the following article, which is very applicable for today’s devotion.

The magazine cited a man who went to a psychiatrist complaining that he was always hearing radio broadcasts.  Thinking to humor him, the psychiatrist asked what he was hearing right then.  The man replied that he was hearing Rudy Vallee broadcasting from the Steel Pier in Atlantic City.

After much questioning he discovered that the man worked in a glass bottle factory and had gotten some silica crystals in dental cavities.  The combination of the silica, saliva and some bridgework in his mouth had literally transformed him into a walking crystal radio receiver!

The psychiatrist referred the patient to a dentist who gave his teeth a thorough cleaning, filled the cavities and redid the bridgework.  As a result, the patient “went off the air,” was able to concentrate, and lived happily ever after.

The Bible says that those who are filled with the Spirit are tuned into the heavenly frequency and carry a song around with them everywhere they go – speaking to themselves in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making music to the Lord in their hearts.

What to do:
✞ Understand that what you are filled with is what will come out of you.
✞ Godly music can’t come from a worldly heart and vice versa.
✞ Thirdly, get a clean-up job, not on your teeth, on your heart.
