“So write down the words of this song, and teach it to the people of Israel. Help them learn it, so it may serve as a witness for me against them.”… So that very day Moses wrote down the words of the song and taught it to the Israelites.
(Deuteronomy 31:19, 22 NLT)
God used songs to instruct the ancient Israelites, and that’s still one of His methods today. On several occasions, I’ve heard God speak to me through a Christian song. I specifically remember the time when I had my mind set on something and the song that was playing on the radio that day was about God’s protection. God was trying to tell me that the reason He was withholding what I had asked for was that He was sparing me disappointment and pain. When I look back at how things have turned out, I know that God used the song to speak to my heart that day, and I’m greatly encouraged. Tune in to Christian music. You might just hear God’s voice.
Music is one of God’s modes of communication.
