Break Forth In Song
"Singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts." Ephesians 5:19 NLT
A lot of us don't realize how powerful and important singing is, so we sing only when we are made to sing in church. But singing should be a part of our lives, it's something we should do all the time.
Singing is as important as praying! At midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang hymns to God, the prisoners listened to them, and then suddenly, there was a great earthquake, and the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed! Hallelujah! Prayer combined with singing shakes every wrong foundation in your life and does wonders!
Psalms 98:4-6 says, "Shout joyfully to the Lord, all the earth; break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises. Sing to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of a psalm, with trumpets and the sound of a horn; shout joyfully before the Lord, the King."
