PR30 – Day 22 (March 16)
Music is powerful. It touches our hearts in a deep place. It moves our spirit. It inspires. It allows us to reflect, worship, communicate, and release our emotions.
I was made to worship Him, and part of that includes music. That’s not all of course, but that’s part of worship. Through music, through song, through instruments, I long to worship the King in Spirit and truth.
There is power in music. Sound waves can literally shift the climate. I’m not talking anything weird or hocus-pocus. As I listened to Ray Hughes messages on worship, I was struck with the science of music and sound waves. I don’t quite understand the details of all of the science behind music and sound waves, but I am excited to learn more about it all, it is truly fascinating.
Look at the Bible story from 2 Chronicles 20, when King Jehoshaphat went to battle. The Lord instructed him to put the worshipers in front of the army. What? That seems strange, huh? But, that was the Lord’s battle plan…so who is going to argue with that? Let’s have a little faith people. If God tells us to do something, we better do it. Come on! Check out what happened when King Jehoshaphat obeyed the Commander and Chief…
He told them they would not have to fight in this battle, that it was the Lord’s to fight. That’s what I’m talking about! Do you have battles in your own life right now? Do you struggle with things that you know the Lord wants to give you victory over? I have a good friend who gives me the following advice when I am in a “battle” of sorts, “Praise Him Heather, just praise Him.” Haha, I love it! The first time she said it, it caught me off guard. Now, I’ve begun to embrace this mentality. Not all the time, but I am learning. When I am in a place of struggle, I want to see past it, already see His glory on it, already see VICTORY!
I wish to praise Him on the battlefield.
