Sing to the Lord... when you don't Feel Like it

Sing to the Lord... when you don't Feel Like it
I don't know about you, but some days I don't feel like singing. And since singing is part of my calling, that's not a very good place to be! But I've learned a few things over the years that have helped me understand that singing is actually a weapon against the enemy, because it was one of his giftings also. So it's no wonder that he tries to snuff out our songs!

In Ezekiel 28:13-17, the passage is describing Lucifer. It says that he was the anointed cherub, blameless and beautiful. He was covered with ruby, topaz, diamonds, beryl, onyx, jasper, turquoise, emerald and even gold. Lucifer was a walking jewelry store! It also says that his inward parts were made of timbrels and pipes, which are musical instruments. Imagine that every time he moved he reflected the glory of God, (because he was in His presence) and he produced music! Then Lucifer, rather than giving that glory back to God, decided he wanted to keep it for himself and worse yet, he wanted creation to worship him. God cast him down like lightning and he roams about, here on earth, as a vagabond, seeking someone to devour. And one of the things he hates is to hear our voices singing to the Father

Is it any wonder that one of the greatest wars in our churches has been over music? I hear people make comments about what they like and don't like. I have my preferences too, but the point of singing is not to please me. The point is that it's an offering of our hearts to God. When we sing to the Lord, we are bringing Him an offering that is unique and, I also believe, powerful!

Whether you can carry a tune or not is not an issue. It is your heart that God hears. It is your song of love and praise that cuts through the Darkness that tries to settle on you. It is your song that breaks through the heavens and settles in the throne room of God. It is your song that draws the attention of the angels to come and assist you. And it is your song that causes the enemy to shrink back and withdraw from you, because more than anything else, he hates to hear you sing to the Lord.

So I pray that today, you will sing to the Lord a new song. Just cut loose and sing! Sing with all your heart. Sing in the middle of your storm. Sing in the middle of your trial. Sing until the Light breaks through. Who knows, you may have a host of angels singing right along with you. What an awesome sound that will be!

In His Song!
