When I think of a parent singing over a child, I generally revert to a scene of a mother humming sweet lullabies over her baby as he drifts off to sleep. When our heavenly Father rejoices over us, it paints a very different picture—one of joy and celebration; the idea that we are fully awake. So is it possible for us to hear this heavenly chorus? God says that His sheep know the sound of the Good Shepherd’s voice. We can and do hear His voice all the time, so is it too much to expect that we can hear His singing too?
Recently I have been learning that in order to walk in the fullness of God’s perfect “agape” love, it needs to come by His Spirit, not through our own strength. As we yield to His will, we experience Him working through us. I am beginning to think that perhaps our worship follows this same principle. As we show the desire to praise and worship, yield to the creative hand of His Spirit and engage in the music, we can ascend to new heights. We are often praying for a new sound to come forth from heaven—prophetic songs and worship that raise the water level of the Spirit. As we open our mouth to sing and we posture ourselves to hear the Spirit’s song, every note that we play will harmonize with heaven to create a new sound before the throne, worshipping the King.
How amazing is it that our Heaven Father, to whom all praise and worship is due, would choose to sing a song over us? I don’t know about you, but it makes me want to sing to Him even more!
