Psalm 146:2 – “While I live I will praise the Lord; I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.”
“The Lord is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation. He is my God, and I will praise Him.” (Exodus 15:2).
We all have a thousand reasons to praise the Lord, to sing praises to Him who saved us – and from whom our strength comes from. God wants to hear the sound of our voices, He loves when we sing unto Him, and His standard of musicality is not according to ours. From the undecipherable coo of a baby to the most well trained vocalist, He loves to hear our songs of praise to Him.
Besides our singing, “we will play songs on stringed instruments all the days of our lives in the house of the Lord.” (Isaiah 38:20). Our God wants us to praise Him with tambourine and dancing…with the strings and flute.” (Psalm 150:4). Is this cool or what? Whether an artist or not, musician, dancer, vocalist, we can all sing and dance before the Lord, right here, right now, and in heaven, for all eternity, all the days of our lives!
Let’s choose daily to sing a new song unto the Lord, praise His name, and have the same determination of the Psalmist when he wrote: “I want to praise the Lord throughout my life. I want to make music to praise my God as long as I live.” (Psalm 146:2, GWT).
