So me, being the big kid that I am (plus nothing else was on to watch) I decided to watch Spongebob Squarepants. Spongebob and the gang our in this tour bus looking van and it is taking them to a place called Atlantis. The van begins to lose its power so Mr. Crab pulls up to the gas station to fill up. He couldn’t find the area on the van to put the gas so he asked the tour guide (the talking van, lol) and it said (paraphrasing) that it does not run on the typical gas but instead it is fueled by singing. It said, “the more you sing about your desires the closer you will get to your destination”. Basically, their singing fueled the ability for the van to run. I had to press pause on this part and think about what had just been said.
So many times we rely on ourselves and our own resources to get us to our desired destiny but this was just a sweet reminder of how we will not be able to obtain our destiny based on natural means. Christ is the one who has gotten you what you already have, He is the one sustaining you now, and He will be the one to provide for you in the future.
Their singing is what got them to their destination. Your praise & worship is what will sustain you throughout the journey. It will not only be pleasing to God but it will be fuel for you along the way. In those moments of praising & worshiping God it is a beautiful reminder of just who is in charge of your life. These moments remind you that God knows exactly what He is doing and that He does not have a problem at all with getting you to your place of destiny.
Trust Him, praise Him, & worship Him throughout your journey and soon you will reach your desired destiny! Sing about His beauty, His wonder, how marvelous He is, How splendid He is. Tell Him how much you desire to know Him more! Tell Him how much you desire to be more like Him. Tell Him how much you desire to please Him.
Take a lesson from a childlike source and sing your way to your destiny 🙂
“Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!”
“All the earth worships you and sings praises to you; they sing praises to your name.”
“Praise the LORD! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! Let everything that has breath praise the LORD! Praise the LORD!”
The more you sing about your desires the closer you will get to your destination (Atlantis). The power of the car was fueled by them singing.
