Music awakens the soul. Sound is more integral to our existence than any of us realize = in beginning God spoke and we existed.
Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. NIV
Psalm 33:6 “By the word of the Lord were the heavens made.” NIV
I believe God didn’t merely speak our world into existence. I believe God sang our world into existence. We see how God sings in Scripture.
Zeph 3:17 says God rejoices over us with singing. NIV
Many people believe God is mad at them. He’s not mad at us. He’s mad about us like a loving and wonderful father would be.
All creation has rhythm of cycles & seasons. Matter is made up of atoms and whirling molecules that are always in motion. All matter in the universe is 99%+ empty space.
If the nucleus of an atom were the size of a marble the electrons would be specks of dust a half mile away. Every physical thing has that much empty space in it. Inside that empty space is intelligence, frequency & rhythm.
This is why we are all capable of being awakened by a song. When the right song begins to play we automatically engage in the rhythm.
When you are in sync with God there is a rhythm about your life of confidence and momentum.
Nothing can stop you when your thinking is right. Nothing help you when your thinking is wrong!
Prv 29:18 If people can’t see what God is doing they stumble all over themselves But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. MSG
Keep your song from God alive! We’ve all been sitting at that stop light and see the car next to us with the driver in a totally different world of music. Bopping their head and sometimes singing at the top of their lungs. It looks crazy from the outside but if we were hearing what they were hearing we’d be understanding what they were doing.
This is the way it is for all of us when the song of God is awakened in our lives.
Hosea 9:7 says the prophet is considered to be a fool and the inspired man to be a maniac.
Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den but somehow he kept singing the song of God. King Nebuchadnezzar threw the three Hebrew children into the fire and they kept singing. Joseph was betrayed and neglected yet he kept singing. Our boss can talk cutbacks and we can keep singing. Our doctor can give us a concerning report and we can keep singing.
In God’s Kingdom we don’t have to lose our song no matter what the situation may be! Historians recognized how Israel would always lose their song when they went into captivity.
Ps 137:1-4 By the rivers of Babylon we sit down & weep.., for there our captors ask us compose songs; those who mock saying: “Sing for us a song about Zion!” How can we sing a song to the Lord in a foreign land? NIV
Scripture memory is not like Math. It’s more like music. Actively rehearsing awakens soul & releases warfare! Greatest trgdy of indifference is life we never live & the difference we never make in the lives of other people. Let’s rehearse Scripture to awaken our soul and bring our lives into sync with the rhythm of God, which is the rhythm of life!
