{ Day 334 }

The voice of the Lord is over the waters; the God of glory thunders, the Lord thunders over the mighty waters. The voice of the Lord is powerful; the voice of the Lord is majestic. The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars; the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon. ... The voice of the Lord twists the oaks and strips the forests bare. And in his temple all cry, "Glory!" —Psalm 29:3-5, 9

Music is a heavenly thing in its essence, a part of creation that reflects and proceeds from the very heart and personality of God Himself. This makes music prophetic in nature. Our Father loves music. He is a singing God (Zeph. 3:17). He has a powerful and majestic voice (Ps. 29). Jesus the Son composed the song of all songs that will be eternally fresh—the "song of the Lamb" (Rev. 15:3-4). The Holy Spirit inspires songs and melodies. There is a whole book of them in the Bible—the Book of Psalms. Music has always provided a means of communion and connection between God and His creatures above and below. Spirit-filled Christians are to occupy themselves with singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, singing and making melodies in their hearts to the Lord (Eph. 5:19). Music has intrinsic power to move the inner affections and the outer actions of people.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Inspire me, Holy Spirit, to sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs to You, allowing my life to be a melodious symphony of praise for Your goodness to me.

The Holy Spirit inspires songs and melodies.
