VERNA’S DAILY DEVOTIONAL

PSALM 149:3

Let them praise His name with the dance;

Let them sing praises to Him with the timbrel and harp.

GOD’S WORD IN MANY PLACES MAKES REFERENCE TO SINGING, LOUD MUSIC, AND DANCING. THERE ARE NO RESTRICTIONS IN CHOICE OF INSTRUMENTS OR VOLUME.

HAVING SAID THAT, I’M SURE THERE ARE FORMS OF PRAISE THAT COULD BE OFFENSIVE TO GOD. WHATEVER FORM OF PRAISE IS EMPLOYED IT MUST BE CARRIED OUT IN HOLINESS, FROM THE HEART, WITH A RIGHT HEART ATTITUDE; SO THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT “ANYTHING GOES.” THERE ARE ACTIVITIES, ATTITUDES, AND BODY LANGUAGE THAT WOULD BE OFFENSIVE TO GOD. A SPIRIT OF TRUE LOVE AND HUMILITY SHOULD SCREEN OUT THOSE FORMS OF PRAISE.

GOD RECEIVES PRAISE IN MANY FORMS. LET US CONFORM TO HIS WAYS AND DELIGHT IN HIM. LET OUR HEARTS BE PERFECTLY SURRENDERED. WHEN WE WORSHIP AND PRAISE IN THE RIGHT SPIRIT WE WILL BE PLEASING TO HIM.
