The eternal God of the universe wants to be your close, personal friend. He longs to be your refuge. Your fortress. Your strength. The Lord also wants to be your “song” (Psalm 188:14). My personal song! Throughout Scripture, we are commanded to sing. Singing was God’s idea. It’s a powerful way for us to declare our love for and faith in our Father. And as we sing, God soothes our soul. And we say that we trust Him in all things. David knew God personally, as his song. And throughout David’s life, he obeyed the command to sing. He glorified and exalted God by singing about Him and to Him. David continually sang praise to the Lord - for all that God had done in his life. Most of the psalms were written by him. And remember: They were meant to be sung by God’s people. Think about the comfort and strength given to us as we sing songs to our own personal God. Singing diminishes our anxiety. Calms our heart. Soothes our soul. Encourages our mind. If you feel down and out, sing songs today to your personal God. Songs about Him. His character. His goodness. His faithfulness to you. And sing especially songs to God. Memorize them. Make Him your song. God loves it when you do.
