While checking my email, I saw a subject line from Pandora entitled, “304 songs in June.” I clicked on the post and was informed by Pandora how many songs I listened to during the month, which was my go-to-station, and that I like 61 songs enough to give them a thumbs up! Sometimes it’s a bit scary to know that the internet sometimes knows more about me than I know of myself. 🙂
Let’s make a spiritual application here for a Monday. When the month of July comes to an end, how many songs will you have sung to the Lord? What will have been your go-to-station—music that fed your soul or your flesh? How many songs will you have given a thumbs up of rejoicing; hands raised in the air? God wants to hear you sing! He’s listening!
Psalm 95:1-2 Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
Psalm 100:1-2 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!
Psalm 147:1 Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.
Acts 16:25 At midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them,
Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.
