The Daily Grace - The Power of Music

The power of music to heal and help is a gift from God that comforts many. Perhaps that is why the Psalms speak so deeply to us. There we find lyrics that connect with our hearts, allowing us to speak to God from the depth of our spirits. "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" (Ps. 59:16). 

Amazingly, David wrote that song as he was being hunted down by men seeking to kill him! Despite his circumstances, David remembered God's power and mercy. And, singing of them encouraged him to go on. That's the spirit!

May our God give us a song today that will remind us of His goodness and greatness, no matter what we may face. Make music to the Lord, the God of Israel. Praise Him all day long! He deserves all our praises and adoration.
