Scripture - 1 Samuel 16

Observation - God used David’s music to settle Saul’s soul. The music seemed to calm the king’s tortured mind down. David’s harp playing was so soothing that even after Saul began to loathe David, Saul couldn’t do without his service. 

Application - When was the last time you allowed music to soothe you? Take time today to listen to some relaxing music or to make a joyful noise by creating your own melody and let God’s Spirit bring you peace.

Prayer - Holy Spirit, help my mind to relax through Your presence. It’s so easy to get lost in the comings and goings of the everyday life. It’s easy to let worry and fear overtake my mind. As I listen to your words, take those worries and fears and replace them with your peace. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
