We know that God spoke the universe into existence. We call the Bible the "Word of God." God certainly has a voice.

But did you consider that God sings?

His creation sings. (Psalm 104:12; Psalm 19:1-4)
The angels sing. (suggested by Revelation 5 and Job 38)
The saints in heaven sing. (Revelation 5:9)
We sing. (Ephesians 5:19)

This morning though I was staggered by Zephania 3:17:

Zephania? That tiny little book at the end of the Old Testament. The one a couple of books before Zecharia that makes you wonder if the ancients tried to organize the Old Testament alphabetically, but didn’t quite get it right?

Zephania, one of the minor prophets. Not minor, as in, he wasn’t important. But minor, in the length of the book. A mere three chapters. Three and one-half pages of text in a large print bible; a few finger swipes on Kindle.

Yes, Zephania.

The Lord your God is with you,
the Mighty Warrior who saves.
He will take great delight in you;
in his love he will no longer rebuke you,
but will rejoice over you with singing.
(Zephania 3:17)

Did you see it? That wee small line of text? Those 7 little words. So full of meaning and insight.

Can you picture it? God sings. For us.

Imagine the sound. Imagine the glory. Imagine when we get together and sing with Him.

Better than the best opera.
Better than Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.
Better than whistling while you work.

A celestial sing along. With God leading. God providing all the Words, and singing every part.

Until then, shall we be still and listen? During those times when we hear His voice, is He singing? When we sleep, can we sense His lullaby?

PRAYER: Heavenly Father, thank you for speaking and thank you for rejoicing over us. Please help us come closer to you so that we can hear your voice when we are still. Please show us ways to please you so that when you love us we can hear you sing. Amen.

WHAT ABOUT YOU? Have you ever thought God was singing over you? What might His voice sound like?

I think in many ways we hear God's "voice" singing through nature... the beautiful creatures, like birds singing. Also, the wind. I usually think of the Holy Spirit when I think of the wind. Glad you mentioned all of this today, it got me thinking about God's voice. Very cool !!

It is hard to think God is singing over me, today. Disappointed in myself, today. Needing that new heart.

@ Chris yes, I agree we can hear the Holy Spirit sing in nature. Perfect point.

From Carols Quill said...

@ Pam - you've been especially in my prayers lately along with Daniel. Will pray harder for you to hear God's song.

Pam B. said...

Thank you for all your prayers, Carol. I've really needed them this week.
