{ Day 335 }

I will declare Your name to My brethren; in the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You. —Hebrews 2:12, NKJV

This scripture implies that one of the deepest longings within the heart of Jesus is to sing the praises of His Father in the midst of and through the instrumentality of the congregation of the believing. In light of the nature and importance of music, it should not surprise us that God has used minstrels to inspire and activate the prophetic (2 Kings 3:15). Nor should it be surprising that prophetically inspired people will be led to sing in the Spirit, communicating the heart of God to His people and the heart of His people back to God. This is the essence of what some have termed the "song of the Lord." This phrase, popularized by the charismatic renewal of recent decades, refers to the scriptural references to the Lord's song (Ps. 137:4), spiritual songs (Eph. 5:19), and singing a new song to the Lord (Ps. 33:3; 96:1; 98:1; 149:1; Isa. 42:10).

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Free my spirit to express the songs of Your Spirit. Help me to communicate the heart of God to Your people through my unfettered expressions in the Spirit.

The risen Christ loves to impart some of the passion
He has for His Father into the hearts of His
younger brothers and sisters through
giving them His songs by the Spirit.
