I was delighted when I received a free gift in the maila CD of Scripture set to music. After listening to it several times, some of the melodies took root in my mind. Before long, I could sing the words to a couple of verses in the book of Psalms without the help of the recording.
Music can help us recall words and ideas we might otherwise forget. God knew that the Israelites would forget Him when they entered the Promised Land (Deut. 31:20). They would forsake Him, turn to idols, and trouble would follow (vv.16-18). Because of this, He asked Moses to compose a song and teach it to the Israelites so they could remember their past closeness with Him and the sin that hurt their relationship (31:19-22). Perhaps most important, God wanted His nation to recall His character: [God] is the Rock, His work is perfect; for all His ways are justice, a God of truth and without injustice; righteous and upright is He (32:4).
Consider what God might want you to remember about Him today. Is it His power, His holiness, His love, or His faithfulness? Can you think of a song that celebrates Gods character? Sing it in your heart to the Lord (Eph. 5:19).
Read: Deuteronomy 31:16-22
Prayers for our troops, veterans, families, allies, friends, and Canteeners
for a safe and peaceful week ahead.
Great lesson today, Mr. Mayor!
I have memorized huge chunks of the Psalms and Isaiah by setting them to music.
It really WORKS!
Good evening, Mayor, and a Blessed Lord’s Day to The Mayor family.
Hope you and your family are having a good weekend.
"Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve." -from THE BIBLE: Matthew 4:8-10
