Sing!

[COLOR=#ff0000]‘You shall have a song as in the night.’ Isaiah 30:29 NKJV[/COLOR]

Why does the Bible say, ‘It is good to sing praises to our God’? (Psalm 147:1 NKJV) Because when you express the promises of God’s Word in song, your faith is strengthened.

The Great Depression of the 1930s hit a businessman named JC Penney particularly hard, endangering his very health. Anxious and desperate because of his huge financial losses, Penney sank so low he felt he had nothing left to live for. Even his family and friends shunned him. In the hospital one night, he grew so demoralised that he expected to die before morning!

Waking, he heard singing coming from the hospital chapel. The words of the song were: ‘Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you. Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you.’ Entering the chapel, he listened to the song, the Scripture reading, and the prayer. He wrote: ‘Suddenly—something happened. I can’t explain it. I can only call it a miracle. I felt as if I’d been instantly lifted out of the darkness of a dungeon into warm, brilliant sunlight.’ From that day on, JC Penney was never again plagued with worry. He described those moments in the chapel as ‘the most dramatic and glorious twenty minutes of my life’. And when he died at ninety-five, he left behind 1,660 department stores bearing his name.

When nothing else works, the praises of God set to music can lift you out of a spiritual low. That’s why the Bible says, ‘It is good to sing praises to our God.’ Try it and see for yourself. It works!

Thank you for sharing that encouraging word @ladylovesJesus

It is so true that singing praises to the Lord can lift us up.....sorrow turning to joy, misery to thanks, fear to trust.

Praise the Lord!
