 “Drum Beat”
Wikipedia says; A drum beat or drum pattern is a rhythmic pattern, or repeated rhythm establishing the meter and groove through the pulse and subdivision, played on drum kits and other percussion instruments. As such a "beat" consists of multiple drum strokes occurring over multiple musical beats while the term "drum beat"[1] may also refer to a single drum stroke which may occupy more or less time than the current pulse. Many drum beats define or are characteristic of specific music genres.

“Drum Beat”

It has been studied and documented that “drum beats” have a definite effect on our movement and mentality. In the article “The Resonant Human: The Science of How Tempo Affects Us”. Blake Madden examines how people react emotionally to the BPM or “Beats per Minute” of a sound especially drums. It is said that BPMs;

90-100                                       110-117                              120-122                                   140-180                              200+
Sad tension                     melancholy                      happy danceable               rushed, excited                 chaotic
“Drum Beat”
What “drum beat” are you reacting to and more importantly who’s “drum beat”. When I consider that we were made by God to move according to the beat or rhythm of his tempo, it becomes clear that far too many of us have changed and began to follow not his but another’s.
“Drum Beat”
In Genesis 3rd chapter, God recognized the change of his creation’s beat from his to another’s and that caused a life changing future for all of mankind. Adam stopped following the beats of God and it brought sin and death into existence. In 1Kings 11 Solomon was told not to marry foreign women, but he switched beats. 1 John 2:15 says; “ Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him”.
“Drum Beat”
You need to examine your lifestyle to see whose “drum beats” are controlling your life. This Sunday get to Church and learn more of how we are intended to display evidence of the “Master Musician” (God) playing the beats we live by.
