The coming of the dawn...new beginnings...fresh starts...hope...the end of the darkness.
Is it possible to wake the dawn? With a song?
I think so.
This I know for sure: worship/praise/thanksgiving brings freedom, provision and miracles.
Enemies flee. (2 Chronicles 20:21-22)
Prison walls fall down. (Acts 16:25-28)
Provision multiplies. (Matthew 15:36)
Hearts are encouraged and strengthened. (I Samuel 30:6)
I will wake the dawn with my song. For every place where I long to see freedom, I will lift up my heart in worship. For every place I see need I will thank the Provider. In every situation where I see torment I will seek the heart of Peacemaker with worship. Where worry and despair weigh down, I will lift up a song.
Wake the dawn. With your song.
"My heart is confident in you, O God;
no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart!
Wake up, lyre and harp!
I will wake the dawn with my song.
I will thank you, Lord, among all the people.
I will sing your praises among the nations.
For your unfailing love is higher than the heavens.
Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens.
May your glory shine over all the earth."
