Exodus 15:1 (KJB) Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.
I am singing in victory.
I am singing in praise.
I am singing in sweet fellowship with God.
I am singing in the middle of the trails of life.
Singing praises to God is not an emotional experience based on circumstances. Adoration of God is about giving heartfelt glory and honor to God despite the conditions about us. It is giving God credit for everything rather than accumulating pride in any of my individual accomplishments.
The truth is that apart from God, a man cannot realize any lasting success. Personally knowing this fact naturally makes a softened heart sing tributes to God whether a person is standing amid great triumphs or pressed in trials and tribulations.
Singing in the heart, as did Moses and the Israelites, is vital, even when we find our circumstances are challenging, and it seems there is nothing to sing about in our life. The Apostle Paul in the New Testament is an excellent example of singing to God whether in captivity or freedom.
