Memory verse for this week:
“Oh give thanks to the LORD; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples! Sing to him; sing praises to him; tell of all his wondrous works!” 1 Chronicles 16:8,9
How often do you sing to the Lord? One can participate in music at church on Sunday mornings and still not sing to the Lord. Paul says in Ephesians 5:18,19 to “…be filled with the Spirit, addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart.” Therefore it is quite possible that moving our lips in rhythm to the music on Sundays is not singing to the Lord at all. Singing praises to God is a work of the Holy Spirit. This great work can occur at any time. We can truly sing in our morning devotion times or before bed time and any time in between. This song reflects a grateful heart that personally knows his wondrous works.
Prayer points for today:
- How long has it been since you have really sang to the Lord?
- Give Him praise morning, noon and night.
