Singing is a wonderful response to trying times. Music is a gift from the Lord that lifts our spirits and drives the message of the songs deep into our hearts. And the Lord loves for us to make music to Him. It can be soft and sweet. It can be loud and shouting. It blesses Him as it blesses us.
“Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.” Psalm 95:1-2
This psalm is an invitation to make music to Him. What can you sing today? Is it a favorite old hymn, a brand-new worship song, a message of grace and peace?
Music is an area of the church that is often contested. It shouldn’t be. It is a place to come together that brings joy to the heart of God and joy to our hearts, too.
Lord, I want to thank You that You have given us the gift of music. May You be blessed as we sing it back to You.
