Musicians, Tune Your Instruments Before the Concert

Good morning, Christians,
The title of this devotional seems almost ridiculous. Did you ever know a musician that did not tune his instrument before starting the performance? It would be much more ridiculous to tune an instrument after the sour notes began to pour out to an audience.

Yet, how many times have we Christians hurriedly started our day, without checking our hearts to be sure that we are in tune with God? We wait until we struggle through the day, and then try to tune our heart after the problems of the day. We beseech God; cry out to Him, begging Him to forgive all of the harsh words that we spoke, the many errors that we made during the day past.

Like a musician, we would avoid much conflict and criticism if we would only get into Godís Word to begin our day, ask for Godís presence to guide us, and tune our heart to Him. Satan will do everything in his power to prevent that precious time of communion with God.

Remember Godís Words of encouragement and promise. Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against Thee. Psalms 119:11. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Proverbs 8:17. A few quality moments with God, gives us strength and constant communion with Him. He is the only one that can fine tune our hearts and make us truly ready for this dayís concert of our lives.

Letís tune our lives, and our Director will help us to remain in tune with Him and go through our day with joy and peace.

Only a moment with Jesus
Will make our problems grow dim.
The way will be come much smoother
As we commit our moments to Him.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

This is a great devotional, Verna, and one I won't soon forget. I think it's one of my favorites! I also fully agree with what Scott said. You reminded me of something. Have you ever heard of Rob Bell? He's a theologist, pastor, and author, and makes short movies that share deep spiritual truths. In one of them I watched he went to a concert hall while musicians were practicing their instruments and compared how being in harmony with God is a lot like playing in harmony in a concert. When you follow Him completely, your life is appealing to others and makes a diffeence. When you don't, it makes a lot of noise! Well, see ya and God bless.

Great analogy. As a musician, I have found this very true. Also my instrument can go out of tune during the concert. As a Christian, I have found that I must constantly check that I am in tune. It can be a great distraction if the listener can hear a dischord and the message won't be properly recieved. I pray that the music of my life is in tune with the Holy Spirit at all times. Ezek 33:32.
