MINISTERING TO THE LORD THROUGH SONGS.
Read 1 Chronicles 25:1-6.
You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, And by Your will they exist and were created’ (Revelation 4:11)
There are diverse ways of ministering to the Lord, one of which is through the appointment of people who are vast and skilled in playing different musical instruments to minister to God and to praise His holy name.
King David, a man after God’s heart, caught this revelation and thus those who are able to carryout this special task unto our holy God. He set some people over the service of song in the house of the Lord (1 Chro. 6:30,31). because he understood the importance of ministering to God through songs.
This ministry is a divine gift though, it is expected of every child of God to minister to Him in this area, but some are endowed with this special gift and thus do it very well. The power of song is characteristic of individuals, and it often flows in family lines, as is illustrated in the cases of Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman. Those with the gift ought to be consecrated to the divine service. When one ministers to God through songs, it brings down God’s presence, glory and also comforts and helps people.
Let all who have this gift lay it on the altar of God’s service in the sanctuary. Use it both in the public and in private sphere worship to the Lord. The book of Revelations reveals that twenty four elders, four beasts and hosts of angels minister to God through songs and worship at all time. (Rev. 4:8). If God has endowed you with this gift, join the host of heaven to worship Him in the beauty of His holiness. Halleluyah!.
Are you gifted by God in this area? Desire God’s glory, the blessings of His people. No arrogance and no commercialization.
- Who is like unto Thee, O Lord, who is like unto Thee, O Lord, among the gods, who is like Thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders, hallelujah.
- Pray that God will open your eyes to the awesomeness of His works, so as to be launched into the realm of praises.
- Pray for choristers in each assembly that God will sanctify them and make them fit for the assignment committed into their hands as they lead the congregation before God in songs of praises.
