Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness. (Psalm 30:4 KJV)
When you are distressed, what would you like to do to release your distress? There are several ways to release the distress of our lives and the most of them are negative. The world teaches us having drink or listen to the feeling music (such as hip-pop, rock, jazz, soul, etc.) is the way of escape from distress. The world method of releasing distress may last for while, but it doesn’t satisfy our spirits.
Jesus said that let not our hearts be troubled (John 14:1). He wants us to be calmed down as we are living in this world. I understand that this world is corrupted by sins and it is not easy for us to have peace in our lives.
Singing a song to the Lord is another way to get relaxes our souls, but we also connect to our Heavenly Father. David sang a song to the Lord because he had a relationship with Him. Having a relationship with God is the key to releasing distress in our lives. Paul said in Philippians 4:6, “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” And Peter also said, “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you (I Peter 5:7).”
Why not start your day with praising the Lord with the spiritual song. Crank the worship music up and begin to remember what God has done in your life.
