Such as Taught to Sing Praise

Such as Taught to Sing Praise

            There is a very interesting Scripture verse in 2Chronicles 23:13, “And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of musick, and such as taught to sing praise….”  I do I not know how many times I have read this verse, but it stood out to me the other day as I was carefully reading the twenty-third chapter.

            Among those who were worshiping was a classification of Levite musicians whose occupational specialty was teaching others to sing praise to YHVH.  Maybe the reason that there are so many musicians who present God with musical offerings that are less than excellent and certainly not appropriate for public worship is that no one in their church fellowship has ever bothered to teach them how to sing praises unto our awesome and holy heavenly Father.  Those of you who are teaching little children to sing praise songs and choruses are doing the future church a great service.  Others may not understand the importance of what you are doing, but God thought it was important to make specific mention of it in His inspired Word.

Thought for the Day

Christian fellowships need many more Christian musicians who will take the time and effort to teach young Christians how to music unto God.

Prayer for the day

Precious Lord, I am asking you to pour out a special blessing on all of Your musical servants who teach little children to praise You.  Where ever these special music servants are today, please surround them with Your love and grace and help them to reach out to You and receive your anointing and power for this special musical service to You.  Lift them up before you and make them aware of your understanding and love for the musical ministry they perform.  Help them to raise up generations of Christians who will “know the joyful sound” and will know how to music unto you in this century.  This I am asking in Your Great and awesome name.  Amen.
