Sing Praises to God

The gift of song is one of the wonderful blessings that God grants us. We, as a people of God, have been blessed with songs and hymns that glorify and honor God. I believe with all my heart that every believer should have a song of praise in his or her heart for God. I can’t sing, but I always have a song that renders praises unto our God. One of my favorite songs is, “It Is Well with My Soul.”  It brings music to my ears and lifts my soul. When we gather for worship, the songs sung by the choir and the congregation offer praises unto God. In reading the Book of Psalms, we find many chapters that speak about giving God praise. In Psalm 147:1, we find these words:

 “Praise the Lord!  How good to sing praises to our God! How delightful and how fitting!”

The psalmist speaks about the Lord’s goodness and kindness. He expresses gratitude and thanksgiving. In verse 3,  he speaks of  how God heals the brokenhearted. It is my fervent prayer today that we will all sing of the Lord’s goodness and kindness, and that we not only have a song in our hearts, but also a song on our lips. As written by the song writer:  “Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His Holy Name!”
