Heaven is filled with music. We will hear it forever. The heavenly angelic choirs will proclaim God’s holiness and majesty. Their never-ending songs of worship will praise his holy name. Music in heaven serves a sole purpose - to praise the One who created all. Heaven is filled with angels ceaselessly lifting their voices and thanking God for all he has done. In the book of Revelation, 27 songs are sung proclaiming the splendor of God - that he alone is worthy of our worship. Thousands upon thousands of angels declare his power and strength. His sovereignty and holiness. His worthiness and grace. Imagine the magnificent display of tens of thousands of angels encircling God on his throne, playing harps while raising their voices in worship and praise. The angels singing in loud voices: “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!” (Revelation 5:12). Over and over, they sing of the goodness of God. Music is prominent in the Bible and commemorates significant Biblical events. An angel announced the birth of Jesus, instructing the shepherds to look for a baby lying in a manger (Luke 2:12). As soon as the announcement was made, a huge angelic choir began singing God’s praises: “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” (14). The celebration was a musical one, as songs convey deep emotions often unable to be expressed by words alone. In heaven, we will be in God’s presence forever. We will experience complete joy and peace. We will live free from anxiety because God “will wipe away every tear from [our] eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away” (Revelation 21:4). Everything bad, anything hurtful to us will be banished. Sin and death will no longer exist. And we will sing with the angels as well. Maybe God will give everyone a beautiful voice so we can join the melodious, harmonious sound. Wouldn't that be wonderful? We can prepare for heaven now by making a joyful noise unto the Lord, no matter how we perceive our earthly voice to sound. After all, God looks at the heart of our faith, not the greatness of the voice. Begin singing praises to God now for who he is, and enjoy the side benefit of singing your anxiety away.
