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?
