The Israelites were known for singing beautiful songs after great victory (Exodus15:1). History recalls the time when the Israelites were captured. Their burden and challenges became unbearable; they dropped their musical instrument and stopped singing. The pain stole their songs. A time came, the enemy reminded them of their songs and asked them to sing; they responded, “How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land” (Psalms 137:4).
As you journey through life as a Christian, remember never to lose your song. There may be times of challenges, trials, temptation, and your faith is almost gone. It seems there is no hope for tomorrow. No silver lining in your cloud, at such a time, remembers to sing. A song says, “sing when the trial is greatest.”
It is so easy to sing in the times of victory; when all is working out as planned, but there is always a breakthrough when you sing amidst challenges.
Paul and Silas were imprisoned; they could have sat down wailing, murmuring, and complaining about the unfaithfulness of God, but in that dark hour, they chose to sing. The Bible says, “And in the midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake so that the foundation of the prison was shaken: and immediately all the prison doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed. (Acts 16:25-26)”
Dear Child of God, like the apostles, looks beyond the current situation and sing the songs of praises to God. In your praises lies your big breakthrough. Never give in to despair, sing. You just heard the bad news, sing. Things are not going as planned, sing. Your relationship is collapsing; sing. Your flesh may want to discourage, allow the Holy Spirit to help you sing songs of praises your dark hour. Know in your heart, that as you sing and pray unto your Father in heaven in faith, without anger and doubting, Suddenly Your expected breakthrough will come. You are an overcomer.
