This is an excerpt from: Power To Renew Your Youth
Take time, church. If you are bathing at home, you know, those moments when you're driving, you don't have to close your eyes, and I recommend you don't when you're driving, all right? But you can sing songs like what we sung just now, all right? Singing songs that we sung earlier. "I love you, Lord. And I lift my voice". I guarantee you'll be different by the time you reach your destination, amen.
All of a sudden, you find that you are full of the Spirit, the wisdom of God is there, and the gifts of the Spirit comes into operation. Let me just tell you this, that God has made it so easy for us to be filled and refilled and filled and refilled with the Holy Spirit when he says, "Be being filled with the Spirit, speaking to yourselves in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs". Have you noticed all three of them is singing?
So, in the, Greek, it is the imperative. It is be... and present. "Be being filled with the Spirit, speaking". The way you get filled constantly is speaking in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Of course, it includes praying in the Spirit, but if you notice all the three there, psalms, hymns, spiritual songs is singing.
So, as you sing, like, on your way to work as you sing, even under your breath, or you sing, "I love you, Lord, to keep your lovely face". I'll guarantee you, when you reach that destination, amen, on your way to the hospital to visit someone, pray in the Spirit, amen, and then sing, sing to the Lord, amen. And you don't have to have a destination to sing. Any time, any time of the day, you just sing, and the Bible has ordained that a New Testament way, the New Covenant way of being filled with the Spirit is just by singing. It's very hard to sing and be depressed.
