Psalm 5 – Just Keep Singing
Let all who take refuge in you rejoice. Let them sing for joy forever. (Psalms 5:11)
You probably saw the viral video of stir-crazy Italians singing in unison from their apartment balconies. They know that singing gives you strength. When Paul and Silas were thrown in prison for preaching the gospel in Acts 16, it says they were “praying and singing hymns to God.” At midnight. Loud enough that the whole prison could hear them. And it says all the prisoners were listening, even the guys with the tear drop tattoos and the shivs under their pillows.
Singing is a form of rebellion. You’re saying to world events, “You can’t discourage me.” You’re saying to personal trials, “You can’t make me be quiet.” You’re saying to life, “You can’t hold me down. I’m going to sing.” So keep singing joyful praises to God every day, and sing loudly and boldly along with the livestream service this Sunday at 10am.
