When we lift our voices in worship, we are joining in with heaven.
We are literally singing the songs of heaven along with the angels and elders and saints around the throne of God.
If you want to feel the weight of heaven in your life, worship.
But not only are we joining heaven’s song, we are also aligning with God’s purposes and character.
So when you sing out, “King of All Days, exalted above,” you aren’t just singing words of adoration. You are declaring God as King not only over your days and your family’s days but also over your community, your nation and your world.
You are agreeing with heaven that He is who He says He is and He will do what He says He will do.
You are a part of the contending for “Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
See, you are not just singing.
You are prophetically declaring the truth of God’s kingdom.
Think about what this means.
One minute you are on the phone trying to convince the cable company to remove a $10. charge for the Starz channel for which you never subscribed. You are feeling frustrated and pretty unimportant in the big scheme of things…then you turn on Spotify or YouTube and find some worship music and begin to agree with heaven for the plans and purposes of God and suddenly - though you may be paying for Starz for another month - you are changing the world with your worship.
You are bringing heaven to earth.
In your kitchen.
In your car.
In your church.
So find your voice. Find your song. It may feel awkward and uncomfortable at first, but as you enter in faith, you will leave transformed. You will stop singing and start worshipping.
And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God
from every tribe and language and people and nation,
and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God,
and they shall reign on the earth.”
Then I looked, and I heard around the throne and the living creatures and the elders the voice of many angels, numbering myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands…(Revelation 5:9-11)
