I was reminded, again, this week how powerful music is in my life. I engage the truth found in the Bible in many ways. I read it. I hear it. I pray it. I watch it in action in people’s lives. But, honestly, where I and most moved by the God’s Word is through music.
But as for me, I will sing about your power.
Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love.
For you have been my refuge,
a place of safety when I am in distress. (Psalm 59:16, NLT)
Music connects the truth from my head to my heart. It helps me know God at a completely different level.
It’s a great reminder to me that the music we select to accompany a message is pretty important. For me, the music is just as important to message as the teaching itself. I’m guessing that may not be the case for everyone, but it’s certainly the way I’m wired up.
How about you? Can you relate? And, if so, what songs has God used to speak to you most clearly?
