Midweek Morsel: God Sings Because of Us!


Did you know that God sings? This past January, one of the devotions in Journey, Lifeway’s daily devotional magazine for women, reminded me of this wonderful truth. It wasn’t first-time news to me, but like with so many other truths, it had slipped from my conscious thoughts.

An image of God singing may not fit the mental picture you have of him, but think of it this way: As we worship God, most of us are inspired to sing. Because we love him, we want to express it and many times spontaneously burst into song. Or sometimes some of the songs we know perfectly express the things we want to say to him and so we sing them. Other times, God makes us so joyful with the blessings he showers upon us, we can’t help but sing to him and because of him.

Likewise, we—as God’s precious and chosen children—bring him so much joy, he, too, bursts into song. Sometimes a song may express his heart for us in the perfect way. Or sometimes we bless him with things we say or do. Sometimes he probably can’t help but sing. And all because of us. Amazing, huh?

“He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17b

  1. I like thinking about this today. What wonder to behold the Father’s voice as he sings his blessings over me! That’s a day I’m looking forward to, among others.

    It certainly wasn’t today…I was too busy having a pity party.
