Psalm 33 (part 1)

Psalm 33:1 Let the godly sing for joy to the Lord;
it is fitting for the pure to praise him.
2 Praise the Lord with melodies on the lyre;
make music for him on the ten-stringed harp.
3 Sing a new song of praise to him;
play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy.
4 For the word of the Lord holds true,
and we can trust everything he does.
5 He loves whatever is just and good;
the unfailing love of the Lord fills the earth.
One strong sign that a person has a deep and sincere faith in God: they just have to make music! When it comes to expressing the inexpressible music does a better job than any other human method. Through music the deep wells that tap into joy can gush like an oil well and release the innermost feelings of the heart. With our voices, with instruments, in our humming, whistling, foot makes the connection from earth to heaven in a form of outward expression that perfectly complements prayer. Psalm 33 talks about this and in verses 4 and 5 we see the motivation to music. The word of the Lord is true and He can be trusted! God loves what is just and good and His love absolutely fills the earth (and can fill us too!).
