Your Best Songs

It should always be our aim to give our best to everything we do in life. The Bible says we should do everything for the glory of God (1 Corinthians 10:31) as a representative of Jesus Christ (Colossians 3:17). This does not mean we should only give our best at work or our best at home. This does not mean we should slack off in one area to devote all of our attention to another.

In today’s passage, the Psalmist speaks of singing to God. He states that because “He’s Lord over earth… sing your best songs to God.” God’s Word Translation says, “Make your best music for Him.” Sing with passion. Sing with truth. Sing with understanding. Yes, understanding. Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 14:15 about singing with understanding. Singing with understanding means we sing praises to God for we understand Who He is and how great He is—that is the only way to sing our best song to Him. We must know Him and love Him.

Psalm 47 was written by the Sons of Korah. Remember Korah? There was a rebellion and the people were swallowed alive (Numbers 16); however, God saved some descendents of Korah—the sons. And if you look further down the line, you will find that the prophet Samuel came from that very line. How great is our God! With understanding, comes a pure outpouring of praise. He is Lord over all the earth so let us sing our best songs to Him.

 

“Sing songs to God, sing out!
Sing to our King, sing praise!
He’s Lord over earth,
so sing your best songs to God.”

-Psalm 47: 6-7 [MSG]

  1. If you’re in a competitive industry and you notice that most of your competitors are sharing similar information on their blogs and website, consider
    zeroing in on a niche topic within your industry as a way to
    differentiate from competitors. Clematis tends to grow well
    where its vine stems can latch onto something to grow upwards
    rather than to lay across the ground. Though modern recording studios have come up
    in large numbers all over USA, the facilities in Los Angeles are way ahead as far as
    volume of work is concerned.
