(Psalms 39: 1-3)
1 I said, “I will watch my ways
and keep my tongue from sin;
I will put a muzzle on my mouth
while in the presence of the wicked.”
2 So I remained utterly silent,
not even saying anything good.
But my anguish increased;
3 my heart grew hot within me.
While I meditated, the fire burned;
How often does this happen? When we begin to open our mouths and really focus on God, the spirit and the fire comes and that power in that moment is like no other. Notice He Say's "when I didn't say anything my anguish increased. So many times we let life just happen, we let it go by without a word spoken and don't take up our power to speak. But the power is in the praise, and it's the speaking up that makes all the difference. When we focus on God in praise, the fire of the spirit overtakes us. We can produce we can do anything because that power is for creativity. It's strength to begin to move and act to shift circumstances.
Focus promotes fertility. Whatever you meditate on you will produce. David said: "As I meditated, the fire burned." "Then I spoke with my tongue" that's so familiar because it really happens. When the fire comes it cannot be held in. Words are powerful and they are definitely tools that are meant to be used. It's important to focus on the Lord Because our vision, and the vision for our lives in Him. Anything else we look for outside of purpose fails miserably. We can go so far and in the wrong way and be lost, but the right answer is always waiting, and it's nowhere but in the Lord.
( vs 7.) "But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you."The Power, the Vision, and the Words are in the Lord. What are you looking for and where are you placing your meditation?
