“Then those who feared the Lord spoke to one another,
And the Lord listened and heard them;
So a book of remembrance was written before Him
For those who fear the Lord and who meditate on His name.”
This past Sunday following worship, a friend came up to me and gave me this verse of scripture. There was an undeniable sense of God’s power and presence in the building that morning at Bay Community Church.
What an amazing thought, that God would write about us. That he would listen from heaven and hear our worship and then record it for remembrance.
The image that was given to me was that God heard our songs and was moved by our worship to him.
Can you imagine God calling the saints and angels over to sit with him and listen. Then saying to them “what has been done this morning in this worship service will be remembered and written about.”
I have been honored through the years as a song writer and have had number one songs as an artist. However, I have never had any honor that comes close to this.The honor of knowing that “God” listened. That God would remember and write about what our worship team and church sang this past Sunday morning!
May we never go to church and just go through the motions. Let us always realize that God listens, if we truly sing to him.
When you sing a song of worship, never forget that you are singing for God and not for men.
Your song can be heard, remembered and even “Written about in Heaven” by our creator.
How awesome is that?
