Something to Sing About

Every once in a while I come across a Bible verse that seems brand new to me. It’s a wonderful thing to experience. It’s even better than finding an extra french fry in the bottom of the bag, after you thought they were all gone.

That happened to me recently- not the french fry thing, but the verse thing. It’s like the joy of finding buried treasure; a verse that speaks fresh and new.
This one was Zephaniah 3:17 “The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.”

—Wow! That’s amazing. God sings! Can you imagine that. It brings a couple of questions to mind-

What kind of a voice does he have? I picture Him with a booming bass voice, kind of like my own! It would be nasty thinking of Him with a high pitched soprano voice. No thank you.
But, I’m sure the reality is that God’s voice transcends soprano, alto, bass or tenor.

Does your God Sing?
For some people, God is like a judge, sitting on His throne in Heaven, throwing down curses and judgments on people.
Don’t get me wrong. God is a judge. God has, and is, sending judgment on the earth. If I didn’t believe that, I’d have to rewrite much of scripture. Thankfully, that’s not my job. God wrote it. I don’t change it. But that’s a subject for another time. But God is so much more than a judge.

Others think of Him as an impersonal thing, “Use the force, Luke!”. More of an “it” than a “He”. Frankly, once again, I’d have to rewrite scripture to make this view work. No thanks.

The idea of God singing is…cool. What’s even cooler is why God sings. He is rejoicing over His people! Like a parent, watching their child performing in a sport, or acting in a play, or running in a race, God is overjoyed when we accomplish something.

I need to ask, have you given God something to sing about? Have you lived this day in such a way that it is pleasing to Him? Have you lived for Him, in such a way that He looks down from His throne, proclaims to the Heavenly hosts, “That’s my child!”, and breaks out in song?

Think about it. Give God something to sing about.
