People who are confident in God that is. When your confidence is in God you feel content, secure, blessed, protected, happy and all to ready too belt out a tune.
Psalm 108:1 says, “My heart is confident in you , O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart!”
Honestly, I am not like the author of this Psalm. I may have sung a few songs in my times of challenges and difficulties but my interpretation of this verse connotes a regular occurrence in the author’s life. This leads me to the question, “If I am sad, lonely, depressed, angry, envious or sick, will I still sing the praises of God?”
I know that I have used singing to chase away the devil and to keep my heart up when I feel oppressed. This does not happen regularly. But I should!
The act of singing, especially singing the praises of God, is a display of our trust in Him. This is an act that says, “I believe that God will never leave me nor forsake me. I believe that even if I lack today God will always supply all my needs according to His riches and glory in Christ Jesus. I believe that in times of sicknesses, God will be my healer.”
How about you? Are you able to sing the praises of God today? Choose to put your confidence in Jesus. HE is after all, the author of your faith. | by Edwin Arceo, CBN Asia
