Eph 5:17-21
'17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. 18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; 19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; 20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; 21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God'. (KJV)

To stay filled with the Spirit is ultimate wisdom. Today's text tells us some practical ways to 'make the most of every opportunity in these evil days' (Eph 5:16) and stay filled with the Holy Spirit.

MAKE MELODY IN YOUR HEART
The Scriptures give us an insight in James 3 how a big ship is controlled by a small rudder. That is how the tongue directs the course of life. Psalms and (spiritual) Songs are carriers of spirit. Not having melody in our hearts towards God is a sign our oil is running out.

GIVE GOD THANKS ALWAYS
Gratitude to God is the best attitude in life. It shows God-consciousness. Read 1Thes 5:18. You can pray amiss, but you can never thank God amiss. Gratitude keeps us in the Spirit. Ingratitude is a sign you are running low on oil.

SUBMIT YOURSELF IN REVERENCE TO GOD
When we relate with others guided by our reverence for God, humility finds expression in us and God's Spirit fills us. Pride is a sign you are running out of oil.

Go into today, speaking words of life to yourself and to others. Thank God always. Humble yourself before God and treat all people in the fear of God.

Prayer: Lord, I ask for the Wisdom to make the most of my time on earth in the way that secures my eternity. Amen.
