I love music.. I have discovered that God also loves music. If you look at the largest book in the Bible, it’s the book of the Psalms. The Psalms are the lyrics from one hundred and fifty songs.
I love singing…God also loves singing. In the Old Testament it also talks about God singing over us.
“For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty Savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With His love, He will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs.” ~ Zephaniah 3:17 NLT
I love musical instruments… If you come to my house, you will discover around a dozen musical instruments that I love to play. I discovered that God also loves musical instruments. In the Psalms it frequently talks about using all kinds of instruments to give praise to God.
Praise God with the lyre and harp! Praise Him with the tambourine and dancing; Praise Him with strings and flutes! Praise Him with a clash of cymbals; Praise Him with loud clanging cymbals. Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord! Praise the Lord!” ~ Psalm 150:3-6 NLT
I love to sing praises to God… It is good to note that some of God’s most beloved men also loved to sing praises to God. Men like Moses, David and Solomon were all songwriters and singers that loved to sing praises to God.
“Let all that I am praise the Lord. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God with my dying breath.” ~ Psalm 146:1-2 NLT
So next time you are in your car, or working around your house, or in church: Try singing your praise to God… Try it, God likes it!
Question: Do you like to sing? What benefits have you found from singing?
