Scripture: Psalm 56:6-16
The country of Wales had a deep root in its culture that celebrated their men’s choir team’s songs. Before the second world war, the happiness crew of Wales and Germany conducted a friendly yet competitive singing competition. But during the war and after the war, this friendship turned into enmity. But a sentence was engraved on the Trophy was shared with both teams. It says, “Talk to me; you will be my friend. Sing with me; you will be my brother.” This slowly took away the enmity between both countries.
Music that has the power to comfort our souls and help us in our times of distress is a gift from God. That may be why the book of Psalms connects us so deeply. We see a lot of songs that relate to our heart and helps us speak to God directly in the book of Psalms. But I will sing of Your power; Yes, I will sing aloud of Your mercy in the morning; For You have been my defense And refuge in the day of my trouble. (Psalm 59:16). It is surprising for us to know that David wrote this beautiful Psalm when he was being chased by Saul and his people to be killed. David kept writing and singing about God’s goodness no matter how bad his situation was. And this motivated him to move forward every day.
I pray that whatever situation you are going through today, God will give you a song of praise that describes His goodness and mighty power. God bless you!
