Singing into His presence

Filed under: Idle Ramblings — pearsey @ 6:14 pm

Psalm 100 from the Message translation:On your feet now—applaud God! Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. Know this: God is God, and God, God. He made us; we didn’t make him. We’re his people, his well-tended sheep. Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him. For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever.

What a great Psalm and a great reminder of the value of singing. Sing yourself into God’s presence. I think of the times when I will start on a song and use that as a springboard to sing other things – to singing a particular line that has God’s anointing on, to singing my own words, or even a revelation based on the words of the song. I’m reminded of a time that a friend and I came to worship God. We chose to go through the songs that we were going to do in the church service that morning and so we began to sing. What happened next was amazing. I had the greatest privilege of watching my friend go to a whole new level in God as we began to sing. As we sang, God just poured out His presence and my friend broke through – it was fantastic to see somebody coming to God with a freedom that I can’t explain.
When I come and sing with the right heart attitude, (and don’t give up after two minutes), I end up in God’s presence – literally by singing my way there. It’s a great reminder of the value of singing and giving God praise.



  1. Wonderful to read, but what about your guitar playing…the prophecies etc. Is it possible that by playing the guitar even when it is hard the spark could be set off to fulfill that wonderful talent you possess that is lying dormant.
    With the same spirit of faith towards guitar playing and wring songs as you give in worshipping……..

  2. Yep, music is an instrument and a vehicle that can be used to praise God as well – the bible tells us that. And yes, I do need to pick up the guitar a bit more…
