“'My heart, O God, is steadfast,' my servant, David, proclaimed. 'I will sing and make music'” (Psalm 57:7, NIV).
“You belong to me, and I know you intimately. You are my instrument, and I long to make joyful music in your life. I long to play the music of my love through you. Your music is not my music. Your music rises from self, but my music rises from my love that willingly paid your debt of sin. It is complete, and never fails. It is honest, and never fabricates. It is pure and never clouded with earthly judgment. I make harmony of which you make such discord. My music played in your life sounds hope in the ears of those you have no power alone to help.
“Through your life I have the power to reach those you have failed‒ones you have misjudged and ones of whom you have thought less. Your self judges, and because of that you have no power to impact lives. You have placed yourself in the way of what I am able to do through a yielded life. Yield your life to me, and allow me to bring my harmony into your life. It will flow, rich and freely, through your life and into lives of others. Don't allow the discordant failures of your life to hold you back. Because you desire all of me now, and because you know me as your Lord, your failures are mine. They are no longer yours. It is my purpose to bear them, and to make all things new.
“My servant, David, had a heart that belonged to me. Even though he failed miserably at times, I knew He would listen to my reprimand, and return to me. He yielded His life to me and became steadfast and unshakeable in His commitment. During the darkest of days as Saul sought his life, David allowed his music to be my music. You, just like my servant, David, are also my instrument. Through your life, I have the power to make music that speaks to those who are are destitute and longing for peace. Yield your life to me, and allow me to mold you into the finest of instruments for my purpose. There is no greater fulfillment.”
