Psalm 95:1 O come, let us sing unto the LORD: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation.
Music is a wonderful gift from God. It seems everyone likes some form of music. It can also be used for so many different things. It can calm a person with its soft melodies. It is used in battle, loudly blaring 24 hours a day to keep people from sleep and drive them crazy. A trumpet will sound a tune to call people to battle or to wake them from sleep. In church, it is used to sing praises to God. Music is truly a gift from God. How then can we use it for His good? The Bible tells us to, “make a joyful noise to the rock of our Salvation.” It says we are to, “sing unto the Lord.” God loves to hear us sing. Even if we do not have the voice of an angel, God loves to hear us when praises to Him come floating off our lips and from our heart. I believe it does at least three things.
1. I believe God loves the sound of our voice. Could you imagine hearing your child in the back yard singing for everyone to hear, “O how wonderful is my mom, she loves me like no other, O how special is my dad, God could not make another.” Wouldn’t that melt your heart? Would it matter to you if they were singing on key or not? No way! I believe God loves to hear us sing His praises in the same way.
2. It lifts your spirits to sing the praise of your God. It will make your day so much brighter as you sing of our Wonderful Redeemer. As you sing the Wondrous Love of Jesus, the joy from the Lord will overshadow you.
3. I like this one. I believe it drives Satan MAD!!!
Find a place all to yourself today and sing, What a Mighty God We Serve, or Amazing Grace, or Jesus Loves Me. Whatever comes to your heart, Just Sing.
