More Psalm 81 (Old Testament)
Devotional: Thought for the day
Singing aloud is a strength to your soul and it empowers you to meditate on his faithfulness.
Because the Lord realized how it is easy for man to forget God's goodness, He made it an order for the Israelites to sing aloud. Why would God do such a thing? Singing quietly may be easily hijacked by the adversary of your soul known as worry and anxieties, but singing loudly requires all of your power and focus; would you try it now? Your spiritual man is boosted if you sing loudly.
Let me share a secret with you: singing loudly is one of the weapons you can use to free your soul from the valley of dryness. The more you sing, the more vibrant your spirit man will be. See what happened to the Israelites in our text above: The Lord was aware that the devil was after them in order to make them forget his faithfulness, so He continued to warn them to sing of His faithfulness, to sing of His love.
Check Psalm 81 verse 11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me
They refused to do what the Lord demanded, and they lost faith in God and began to worship a different and false god instead. May I advise you that singing loudly is one of the secrets to spiritual stability; you take control of your environment, and your spirit is awakened.
In Jesus' name, I declare you blessed today; whatever is holding you back is shattered. Receive the strength to sing even in the midst of difficulties in Jesus' Name.
Praising God is a blessing to us. He is God all by Himself. You may have many reasons not to sing, however, sing aloud to Him because He is worthy!
Father, I am sorry to have been entangled with my needs and worries. I break loose from my worries, and from my pain today in Jesus' Name. I receive my deliverance to be able to sing aloud to my God and nothing shall hold me back again, in Jesus name. Amen.
