|Sing, sing a song...(thanks to rgbstock.com)|
Fortunately for him, God brought young shepherding David on the scene to slay not only the Philistine giant, but to also slay some of Saul's giants through the gift of music...music that sang a tune of God's goodness and had rich depth of meaning to bring the human soul and spirit back into the spirit kind of reality.
Music has a way of soothing our spirits, souls, and bodies doesn't it?
One of my friends will pick my brain from time to time for a musical adjustment (like seeing a chiropractor, huh?) when she's in the midst of her own spiritual battles. And I usually have suggestions to offer her whether she needs the repetitive mantra of so many of today's worship songs or the depth of sound doctrine found in a traditional hymn or a newer one (like what the Gettys are up to these days). At times, it's not words that a tender spirit needs, but just soothing instruments in symphonic synchronization.
The fact that music engages a different part of the brain makes me realize that music was created by the ultimate musician when He was creating the heavens, earth, animals, days of the week, and man and woman. He knew we would need a bird to sing to prompt our human minds into wanting to engage in birdsong with instruments He led us to create. Our voices lifted high in worship pouring out the breath He poured in keep the song cycle alive.
Why, He even sings over His own children. Zephaniah 3:17.
I wonder what song God will sing over you today. Be blessed knowing He exults over you with loud singing.
