Tambourines vibrating, trumpets blasting – how often do we let out a jubilant sound for what the LORD has done? And more importantly – for his innate nature?
This is something I fall prey to time and time again. My eyes get fixed on my surroundings and the things I cannot fix in my own power and somehow forget that I have a direct line to the ultimate power source. When cities lights darken and the skyline in the distance has vanished, God will be our daylight.
Let that song in your heart spring forth in the night –for the LORD has promised us that he will be our light. He never backs down from his promises and he always delivers what he promised in his word.
“No longer will you need the sun to shine by day, nor the moon to give its light by night, for the LORD your God will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.” – Isaiah 60:19
Now, that is something for which we can triumphantly praise our Creator!
In the physically dark places, as well as, the emotionally heavy points in life – he is there holding up a flashlight, showing you his right and perfect path. We need only open our eyes to see the luminosity.
“Sing joyfully to the LORD, you righteous; it is fitting for the upright to praise him.” – Psalm 33:1
Rejoicing opens doors. It blasts open cemented windows – long sealed shut by cries of despair and hopelessness. Let our hearts overflow with singing to knock down every wall that serves as an impediment blocking our spirit from experiencing true, holy joy!
Be a singer on a stage – the world is your audience yet the only opinion that matters is that of the Savior. He should always be the object of our praise. Hosanna in the Highest – lets shout that at the top of our lungs! There’s no need to be afraid.
Just like a fresh tender leaf hardens over time and loses its color, this present world will fade away. Yet, our prayers and praises will forever fill the incense bowl of heaven (Revelation 8:4).
Fill up that golden alter dear one – and let that voice howl in appreciation, respect and utter astonishment that Christ gave all for you. He gave all to call you sons and daughters. Rejoice.
