God has ascended with a mighty shout. The Lord has ascended with trumpets blaring. Sing praise to God, sing praises; sing praise to our King, sing praises! Psalm 47: 5-6 NLT
I enjoy singing, especially singing in church. The funny thing about me is that I enjoy singing the songs out of the hymnal, singing special choir music, singing gospel-style songs and singing contemporary Christian rock music. I love it all!
The good thing is that, no matter your preferred type of music or song, it is all about praise. We praise God when we sing – no matter how good our voices are. God is our king, God is worthy to be praised. Even if you don't like that particular song it is better to go beyond that and remember who you are singing to: God.
And God wants to hear your praises to him. After all, God has ascended with shouts and music. We need to worship and bow down to the Lord our maker.
God, help us to sing your praises in church, around the house and wherever we go. May we overlook the type of music or the song and remember to whom we are singing. You are worthy and almighty! In Jesus' name. Amen.
