Psalms 33:1-2, “Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous! For praise from the upright is beautiful. Praise the Lord with the harp; Make melody to Him with an instrument of ten strings.”
Music. Helps to make someone feel emotions whether they are happy, sad, or otherwise. As instructed, we are to make music to God. This does not mean that we all need to learn an instrument. Music can be made in many ways.
Rejoice in the Lord. Rejoice means a feeling or showing of great joy or delight. Why would we not rejoice with God? After all, He did send His only Son to die for all our sins and save us from Hell. We should be happy and joyful for all that we get from God every day of our lives. No day is guaranteed. We get the time that we get and that is all. This is the best reason that we should be happy, especially those who are righteous through the life of Jesus.
Praise is beautiful. When I think of praise, I think of church with the hymns and songs and the worship. I think of the singing and the dancing and yelling to God. Praise to God is beautiful. It is the least that our Creator deserves. He deserves far more than we can give. Our lives are no longer required for the sin we committed because of Jesus. This is why praise is possible. Because of the name of Jesus.
The harp and the 10-stringed instrument. Two instruments that can be used to make lovely music to God. Besides these instruments, there are others. All instruments can be used for the honor and the glory of God. One instrument that everyone has is our voices. Our voices can sing praises to God. Even if we think we cannot sing, we can and God loves the person who sings to Him. It doesn’t matter if we are off-key a little or forget a word or 2. God looks at the heart. God knows the intention.
Music is for God. Praise is for God. We need to keep in mind that all that we do, we should do for God. God has done so much for us and we need to understand and show all the love we can to God. It will never make up for what God has done but we need to attempt. God loves those who live for Him. God loves everyone and notices those who are praising and honoring Him. We must praise God today and every day. It is as important and reading your Bible and praying. It all points to love for God and following Him.
Thank You for music. We love You and praise Your name forever. I pray that all Your people will love You and show their love with their hands and their voices. Let us lift our song to You, Father. You give us the song. Let us sing it to You. Let us live for You with every breath that we have.
In Your name we pray,
