“My heart overflows with a pleasing theme; I address my verses to the king; my tongue is like the pen of a ready scribe.” (Psalm 45:1, ESV)
We use this key verse in KingdomNomics to help us with the concepts of SOAK, SOW, and FLOW. As we soak our heart in the Word of God and recite our verses to the King, the Spirit causes our heart to overflow with spiritual nourishment. This discipline strengthens our inner person so Christ can prompt us to help continue his ministry in this world.
Let’s focus on the word “pen” mentioned in the verse. You and I are like pens. A pen is an instrument used to communicate a message to others. Without ink, the pen is useless.
The Spirit can be like the ink needed for a pen to function. In order for us to be “pens” or instruments God can use to continue “writing his story” to this generation, we need to be filled with the ink of the Holy Spirit. (We do this through SOAK, SOW, and FLOW principle explained in our books, which can be downloaded FREE.)
Bottom line: We must confess our sin and ask the Holy Spirit to fill and control us. If we are to be fruitful in our knowledge of Jesus Christ – that is, to yield active CONVERTERLATORS – we need the filling of the Spirit.
A pen without ink is left on the desk. Only when it is filled with ink can it then be picked up by the writer to write one’s message to the world. My personal goal is to be a pen filled with “the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit…” (2 Corinthians 13:14, ESV)
Just think what powerful instruments we could be if the grace of Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit dominated our lives.
Today, ask yourself:
Am I a pen filled with “ink” fit for use by the Master to continue writing his story to the people around me?
