A song has the power to take you on a journey; a journey being decided by the rhythm. You can be driving down the street and that drummer starts playing that beat that makes you move. All of a sudden you’re singing in your car, dancing, screaming to that song that you love. On the other hand you can be sitting in your car driving and that slow jam starts to play. Your eyes open with the memory of the first time you heard that song. Maybe it was your first dance or first kiss, nothing but a flood of rushing memories. You start driving singing the song with tears streaming down your face not caring that the driver next to you is laughing because he just realized he looks the same way when he sings.
1 Samuel 16:23 “And so it was, whenever the spirit from God was upon Saul, that David would take a harp and play it with his hand. Then Saul would become refreshed and well, and the distressing spirit would depart from him.”
Music is power! It has the power to shape and direct a nation. When God created music it was intended to lift our spirit. Leading us into a deeper relationship with God. Saul would feel relieved but when the music would stop he was unable to dive deeper into God’s presence. He allowed his anger and jealousy to take over. He could of used those moments in God’s presence to change his life around, you see if he would’ve taken the time to give God praise his life wouldn’t have ended the way it did.
