When are you most happy? Content? Calm? Are you like David and know God’s closeness and approval through music?
There is a continual musical theme throughout the Bible. From God speaking the world/universe into order (Which can also be translated ‘singing’.) to the Heavenly Host at the birth of Christ, to the massed choirs of Heaven singing at the Wedding Supper of the Lamb. From Bach to Mozart to Beethoven…Casting Crowns to Selah to Matt Maher it’s all pleasing to Him.
God loves a good song! For Him. To Him. About Him. He has surrounded Himself with choirs of angels. He hears the beauty, joy, peace, sadness, melancholy, and delight of each note and sound. He loves it!
Abba, hear my song. Let each note, each phrase, each verse be pleasing to Your ears. Let my life be a continual song of praise to You! Make it so, Lord!
Blessings to you and yours!
