THE POWER OF SONG
Sing praise to the Lord, you saints of His, and give thanks at the reverence of His holy name.
Before coming to Christ, John Wesley, the founder of Methodism, traveled from England to Georgia as a missionary, but the experience was a failure. As he returned home in frustration, his ship ran headlong into a terrible storm. Wesley was terrified, nut he couldn't help noticing a group of German Christians aboard the ship. They trusted God so completely they held a worship service in the storm. In the middle of their singing a wave rose over the vessel and bore down like Niagara. But the Christians didn't miss a note. Wesley realized the Germans believers had something he didn't have; and through their influence he shortly afterword trusted Christ completely and felt his heart strangely warmed.
Trusting Christ enables us to sing in the storm. Our Lord gives songs in the night and He teaches us to sing songs of deliverance as we wait on Him. An old hymn says "Singing I go along life's road, praising the Lord, praising the Lord." Others, noticing the melody of our lives, will be drawn to Christ. Today sing a song of deliverance. Sing a song of praise.
To God--the Father, Son, and Spirit--One in Three, Be glory as it was, is now, and shall forever be.
