“I Will Make Music With My Soul”

“I Will Make Music With My Soul”

Author: Pat Aman

So many churches seem to have the biggest concern over music. Churches have fallen apart over the music. 

I think we sometimes forget that satan was in charge of the music in Heaven. And he had taken what should be praises to God, and destroyed many churches.

First, I want to say, “until we as children of God learn to have an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father, in worship, praise, prayer and Bible study, we will never be able to worship God fully, whatever the type of music we have in our church services.”

As children of Our Heavenly Father, we better learn to give honor and praise to Him now on earth. See, when we get to Heaven, we will be praising Him day and night,for out all eternity. 

(Psalm 108: 1- 5)1.My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul. 2. Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 3. I will praise you, O LORD, among the nations;  I will sing of you among the peoples.  4. For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies. 5. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth.

Worship the Lord, means to ascribe worth to something or someone thought speech and conduct. Worship addresses God directly, expressing reverence for His nature, character attributes, and power, and grateful praise for all He is and does.

To Praise the Lord means to speak well of God with exuberance andenthusiasm to others and/or to Him because of what He has done. “Praise the Lord!” (Hebrew Hallelujah!) is a command to extol God’s virtues and exalt His because of His mighty acts. A praise gathering is a celebration of God’s mighty power and purpose.

Worship the Lord with all your heart and mind. Rehearse His attributesconsciously. Recount that how  who God is affects you and is changing you. Avoid worshiping mindlessly or by rote or becoming passive in worship. Give yourself your whole heart. Employ singing, both with the spirit and with the understanding, using speaking, bowing, kneeling, dancing, corporate applause and instrumental music to enhance expression of worship.

Praise God with a loud and enthusiastic voice. Clap your hands and shout joyfully to the Lord. Participate in processions of praise. Speak and sing praise to God. Involve such physical expressions as raising hands,dancing, applause, and kneeling.

Discipline yourself to praise God for every benefit He provides. Bedisciplined to corporate praise. Be careful to submit to leadership in praise services, not letting praise degenerate into fleshly enthusiasm.

The psalmists calls for constant verbal expression of heartfelt gratitude to God for all of His benefits and gifts to man.

Give thanks to God, first of all, for who He is. Give thanks to God for all that He has given you. Give thanks to God for His loving-kindness and mercy. Give thanks to God for His protection. Give thanks to God for His guidance. Give thanks to God for His mighty act. Give thanks to God than His purposes will prevail.

Then we must Proclaim God goodness. As one of their major themes, the psalmists call God’s people to declare openly His goodness, loving-kindness, and mercy to them and to the nations.

Proclaim God’s love, mercy, and forgiveness to all of Israel. Proclaim God’s truth and justice in all the nations. Proclaim His righteousness.

Proclaim His mighty acts. Proclaim His salvation, day after day.

In other words we daily need to Praise God for all that He has done and will continue to do for us. We must not just praise Him in the good times, but praise Him in the bad times. 

I have learned that Praising God no matter what my circumstances has made a good situation better and a bad situation seem to go away, or at least has made it easier to bear.

So, I ask you the question, what is stopping you from Praising God?  

I love the song “I Exalt Thee.”  I have included the words below.

I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee

I exalt Thee, O Lord 

I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee

I exalt Thee, O Lord 

For Thou, O Lord, art high above all the earth. Thou art exalted far above all gods  For Thou, O Lord, art high above all the earth Thou art exalted far above all gods. 

And I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee

I exalt Thee, O Lord 

I exalt Thee, I exalt Thee

I exalt Thee, O Lord
