Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Psalm 96:2
Music is one thing that people love all around the world. People love to sing to songs. They style of songs and the words change, but the singing is still the same.
Singing a song is what brings out what is inside the heart.
Along with singing, people love to talk about what is happening. Look at how many different news channels there are available. Along with the news channels, there are radio stations, magazines, newspapers, and online sites to provide news.
The world understands the power of music and news. It is often used to change a mindset or to remind people of something. It can sway the thinking of people very easily, because it gets into the heart and mind of a person.
In this psalm the writer urges the people to sing praises to God and to proclaim His salvation. This is to be done day after day, never ending.
God is worthy of all praise, because it was He who made everything. It is God who gives every person life. It is God who gives purpose to life here on this earth.
Believers need to sing praises of His name in this world. In this process of singing, they will make a proclamation out loud for all to hear. This proclamation is about the salvation that God provides.
Believers have a relationship and a future with God, something that the world does not have. The world needs to know about this.
There is no news that is greater than a life being saved, especially when it is a life being saved for all eternity. That is ground-breaking, earth shattering news that the world needs to hear every day.
If you are a believer in Jesus and have been saved, you have something to praise God for. You also have a message to tell the world. The world needs to hear about what has happened in your life, how God has changed you.
Allow the joy of what God has done in you and for you to bubble up out of your heart through your voice. Sing praises daily to God for what He has done, then make a public proclamation about it. Do not hide it and be ashamed, but be glad and share it.
The world needs what you have. Will you let them know?
I pray today that you will know the salvation Jesus provides; that you will sing praises to God all the time; that you will tell the world about the salvation He provides; and that the world will know of Jesus through you.
Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. 1 Chronicles 16:8
Watching or listening to the news is a very common thing for people to do. They want to know what is happening in their city, state, nation and world. The television and internet is filled with hundreds of different sources for news.
Some news is focused on world news, while others are just local. Yet, even other news can be personal news. Facebook is filled with personal news about what is happening in a person’s life.
People get excited to talk about the good things that are happening in their life. They will also talk about the negative things that are occurring. Either way, people love to talk about what is happening and want to know what is happening in the lives of other people.
As David had the priests set up the ark of the covenant for worship, he told the people to being to give praise to God. In the process of giving that praise, they were also to tell the world what God has done for them. God had established them and made His presence among them.
Every believer has something to talk about. They have a news that is greater than any other news ever given. As soon as one becomes a believer, he has the message that he was a dead man, sentenced to die, but has been forgiven, set free and given eternal life. That is just the minimum of what God has done for the believer.
Each day believers can talk about how God has given them another day, the joy God has given them, the strength He has given, and all other provisions He has given. The world needs to know these things. They want to see what God has done and how it has changed a person.
God has done the same things for you and probably much more. Think about all the things God has done for you in your life. Now you must go and tell the world that news.
If the world can freely share all the bad news around the clock, you can share the best news ever around the clock. Someone out there is waiting to hear what you have to say about Jesus.
Take the time today to proclaim the name of Jesus and tell what He has done and is doing in your life with someone.
I pray today that you will know what God has done for you; that you will tell others what God has done; that you will not be ashamed of Jesus; and that many will believe in Jesus because of your story.
