Application: I began reading "Leading Change." It is a fairly famous book on leading change in the corporate world, but it has many applications. The first error he says that people make in trying to lead change is "allowing too much complacency." Complacency, to me, is falling into comfortable ways that share no sense of urgency. Yet, here, the Psalmist shares that sense of urgency and his own sense of complacency and the need to WAKE UP!
I wonder, if you can remember a time that you had this sense of urgency and feeling of complacency? Can you articulate a time when you were feeling surrounded or entrapped all the while exalting and praising God?
What would it look like to wake the dawn with your song of praise to God? Who or what might is stir up?
Prayer: Wake up, My heart! My heart is confident in you, Lord! I will wake the dawn with my song.
