The Lord my Song

2014.05.07a

“The LORD is my strength and my song;
he has become my salvation.”

(Psalm 118:14)

Reflection:

‘The Lord is my song.’

Humans have over the years composed many songs, not a few of which have been to glorify themselves. However, as our eyes are opened to the wonderful truth of the Lord, and our hearts and spirits respond to the revelation of His love and salvation, we may discover that one song rises joyfully above all the others.

The worship of God is the sweetest of all, and often it is enough just to sing out the name of Jesus. For me true worship must rise like a soaring eagle up into the heavens, and from there descend into complete and holy silence – where it is enough just to whisper again and again the one precious ‘name above all names’ – and then to be completely silent, and silently complete, in the stillness of the Spirit.

Also, and whenever I can, I love to ‘sing out’ in speech the wonders of this God of Love and of the love of God. He is truly ‘beautiful beyond description’ and, when I let Him, ‘my all in all.’

Response:
There are some wonderful songs and hymns that can be downloaded from ITunes – and the lyrics will be on the Internet. Use them if you can as an aid. I have been greatly blessed recently by the singing of Marilla Ness.

Prayer:

Touch my spirit Lord with Your beauty and Your love. Help me to respond as You lead me into worship and the wonder of Your presence. Amen.
