Instililling Biblical Truths into My Grandchildren – Singing/Music is important
Singing is something several of my grandchildren love to do. I love to hear the little ones sing Jesus Loves Me and the B-I-B-L-E. I hope they never quit. Several of them also play instruments – piano, violin, guitar. These are important things in life and something they can always have with them. (My Music Philosophy in a Nutshell)
Listen to our grand daughter sing from the time she was a baby. There are two videos fused together. 🙂 She continues to sing and loves to make up her own songs. What grandparent doesn’t love that!
Do you Sing and Make Melody in your Heart to the Lord?
Most important is the fact that God tells us we should sing and make melody in our hearts; as Christians we ought to do this on a daily basis. He also tells us to play skillfully with a loud noise. Many places in God’s Word talk about using instruments to bring praise to God.
Psalms 33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;
The Lord can also put a song in our hearts in the midst of trials and hard times. Remember Paul and Silas as they sang in jail at midnight. The prisoners all heard them – what a testimony of God’s grace! (Read the story in Acts 16)
Does your music portray a New Song?
As a child of God you should have a new song in your heart! It should be a song of praise to God for bringing you up out of the miry clay and setting your feet on The Rock to stay.
Psalms 40:3 And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
Do you sing and praise God for victories in the daily battles?
Singers were found in battle all throughout the Old Testament. And oh what singing and praising there was when God gave victories in the battles.
2 Chronicles 20:21 And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever.
Exodus 15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
So sing, sing, sing, and bring godly music into your home so your children can hear it and you can continually have a song in your heart to the Lord.
