I woke up from sleep that night and all I knew was that two of my roommates were running from room to room chasing themselves and laughing.
Well! They were already drunk. They would stand in the middle of the room and laugh. Then they will run again. It was a sight to behold.
They even said to themselves, “Do you know we are mad? We have tests tomorrow and we are already drunk”. I could not believe my ears.
Friends, tests, and trials will surely come our way but it is only in a drunk state that we can laugh, dance and shout in the face of such test.
What did Peter know that made him sleep a day to his execution?
What did Jehoshaphat know that made him take singers to face swords and arrows?
What did the Shunnamite Woman know that made her saddle her donkey after she saw her dead son and all she kept saying was “It is well”?
What did David know that made him go against Goliath with just a sling and a stone?
The dancing steps of a Christian will never be the same as that of everyone else because we listen to a different drummer.
What will make me keep singing the song “God will do wonders but how He will do it I do not know” a day to the deadline?
In the face of your tests, let the words in your heart erupt into songs of the spirit in your mouth.
When the enemy requests of you to sing the Lord’s song in the midst of strange circumstances, sing a loud one- they just requested their funeral song!
There is nowhere in the Word where they shouted or sang out of revelation in the midst of a crisis that the situation remained the same- walls come down, spoils are gathered, prison doors fling open.
Let the Word of God dwell in you richly in normal times so that songs and laughter can burst forth in tough times.
