Knowing God - Psalm 21:3

(fp)

Your Name is EXALTED
Right now ... O Lord, I lift my voice
as I sing a song of praise to you!
Let the words or melody of your favorite song of praise begin to rattle through your head today.
 
Be exalted, O LORD, in your strength;
we will sing and praise your might.
Psalm 21:3
 
Have you ever hummed a tune all day and all night? It was just stuck in your head and couldn't get rid of it?
 
Confession time ... Do you know the most recent song that's been stuck like glue in my poor head? It's a silly country song called appropriately enough, "Stuck like Glue."
 
In the Psalms, the word "sing" appears 66 times. Rather than having "Stuck like Glue" stuck in my brain, what if I intentionally stuck a new song in my brain today. For example ...
 
Savior, He can move the mountains
My God is Mighty to save, /He is Mighty to save.
Forever, Author of salvation / He rose and conquered the grave
Jesus conquered the grave.
 
Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to thee.
 
The splendor of a King / clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice / all the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in light / and darkness tries to hide
it trembles at his voice / trembles at his voice
How great is our God!
 
It doesn't matter whether you're a singer or not -- because I'm not asking you to sing outloud! Rather, I'm encouraging you to try sticking a song in your head this morning. If you have a CD, play it two or three times. Online, you can find almost any song -- google your favorite. Then, until the harmony of praise becomes the melody of your day, keep intentionally humming, singing, praising.
 
God can walk closer to you today, if you just sing a little more to him.
 
In Christ's Love,
a guy who's stuck like glue
to you know who

Music speaks so much to me.  I often wake up with a song and hum and sing under my breath constantly.  What I especially love is to hear my children singing praise songs that they learn at church or hear on the radio.  The girl will hum and sing while she is playing and coloring.  Shows me that they are learning to stick God in their hearts!  

Oh Lord! Oh Lord!
How majestic is your name in all the earth!!
Oh Lord! We praise your name! Oh Lord! We magnify your name!
Prince of peace. Mighty God. Oh Lord God Almighty!!
