Scripture for Friday, May 19 (5/19)

The scripture for today, May 19 (5/19), is Ephesians 5:19 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

Oldoldstory-COVER-KINDLE“Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord.”

What is so interesting about this scripture is how we are to make music to the Lord. In the original Greek the New Testament of the Bible was written in, the term “make music” means to play on strings. But put with the rest of the verse, we see that it means to play on the strings of our heart.

How beautiful! In God’s ears, the strings of our heart are far superior to any musical instrument we can contrive. So, why would we want to use them as a substitute? Shall we not please the One we are worshiping? Let us be attuned, not to what we love, but to what God loves.

And so, let us sing! And in the process, let our singing by accompanied by the beautiful strings of our worshiping heart.

Sing on, everyone.  Sing on.

Scripture for Tuesday, November 8 (11/8)

(Yesterday we gave you the scripture for today, so today we give you yesterday’s.)

The scripture for today, November 7, is Psalm 11:7 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:

0-BOOK 4-FOLK HERO-COVER“For the Lord is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.”

The face of God! How we who believe in God long to see his face. We cannot comprehend it. But we can comprehend this…..

God’s eyes ~ “The eyes of the Lord are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good” (Proverbs 15:1).
God’s mouth ~ “I have put my words in your mouth” (Isaiah 51:16).
God’s nose ~ “The Lord smelled the pleasing aroma….The smoke of the incense together with the prayers of the saints went up before God” (Genesis 8:21; Revelation 8:4).
God’s ears ~ “The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.”

Perhaps when we continually watch both good and bad people around us with the same kind of care that God does, perhaps when we speak the words that come out of the mouth of God, perhaps when we send our prayers like sweet incense to God, perhaps when we are attentive to the silent cry of those around us ~ just perhaps, in some way, we are seeing the face of God.

Just perhaps.
