"And the children of Israel that were present at Jerusalem kept the feast of unleavened bread seven days with great gladness: and the Levites and the priests praised the Lord day by day, singing with loud instruments unto the Lord."
(2 Chronicles 30:21 KJV)
If Our Awesome God is in your heart, there should be singing in your heart and on your lips. This singing that is present is a heaven sent melody in your heart. This truth should be so whether we are talking about your private life or your public life. It is usually found there after one is saved and baptized. In our SONGS we can sing of God's salvation, of the battles He has fought for us, we can praise Him, tell of our love for Him, tell our sorrows to Him, and even tell Him what we want Him to know. Sometimes it is easier to sing to Him than to pray to Him but Our Awesome God would like you to do both.
God is Awesome. He just loves to hear us singing when we are doing it to please Him and get His attention. He doesn't care how melodious it is as long as it is joyful (Psalm 100). If it is the only way or even the easiest way to tell God something you want Him to know, then do it by song. God loves to have you tell Him what you like about Him in front of everyone. Your face should reflect this singing melody in your heart and your actions should show your happiness and love for Him. Does your face "glow" and do your actions show your love for God? Or are you letting the world intrude on your joy?
We need to go to church to get our batteries recharged and learn more about our purpose and love for Our Awesome God. Sing songs to God that remind us of what God has done for us, read His Holy Bible and think of how many things we have to praise Him for. Do you let your focus leave God and His Son? Then start singing to Him any time and all day long, if you must, to keep God as your focus. Put God and Christ first in all things you think and do every day! Pray! The "singing should return to your heart" and the "glow" to your face with Our Awesome God's help!
It is easy to keep the world out and the singing in your heart when singing about Our Awesome God. The world which Satan uses wants to keep people sinning, angry, sad and resentful of others. It is not happy and joyful.
We (as a church) want all people in church, worshipping Our Awesome God with faith and obedience every Sunday. If you are not yet a Christian, it is time that you should know and love Our Awesome God as your Creator and Savior. Our church starts with small groups on Sunday at 9:30 AM and a Worship Service at 10:30 AM. On Sunday evening at 6:00 PM, a Bible Study meets for an hour along with a program for children called AWANA which goes until 7:30 PM. We have a Prayer Meeting and Bible Study that meets at 7:00 PM on Wednesday.
