Voice In Ministry - Lift Your Voice!
Laden throughout the Bible are dozens and dozens of scriptures about singing in the Bible. Over 200, in fact. Here are 10 of my favourites:
1 So what shall I do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my understanding; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my understanding. 1 Corinthians 14:15
2 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16
3 The LORD your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17
4 Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise. James 5:13
5 He says, “I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing your praises.” Hebrews 2:12
6 I will sing to the LORD all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live. Psalms 104:33
7 Speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit. Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord, Ephesians 5:19
8 But let all who take refuge in you be glad; let them ever sing for joy. Spread your protection over them, that those who love your name may rejoice in you. Psalms 5:11
9 Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. 2 Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Psalms 96:1-2
10 “Sing, barren woman, you who never bore a child; burst into song, shout for joy, you who were never in labor; because more are the children of the desolate woman than of her who has a husband,” says the LORD. Isaiah 54:1
It's hard to express just how much God loves to hear us sing. There's something about the power of the singing voice and making music that directly speaks to our souls and connects us to God.
No matter where you think you are with your abilities, if you can't do nothing else, just sing!
