I don’t know about you, but God often speaks to me through music. I’m not sure what it is, but there are times when I can just so clearly hear God speaking when I am singing and worshipping Him. Maybe it is that sincere focus on Him and nothing else. Maybe it is a connection made possible by my worship of Him. Maybe it is because I am able to remove the distractions of this world during those times. Whatever it is, I can readily think of a number times when God has spoken to me through music. Here are a couple of the stories.
Clean Hands: This January I had the chance to attend CPC for free. The conference was great, but perhaps the best moment came during the final general session of the week. The organizers of the conference surprised us all when Charlie Hall came on the stage to lead worship for us. As Charlie Sang, “Give us Clean hands” God showed me how my ministry had become an idol in my life. You can read the entire post
My Call: I couldn’t tell you the song that was playing, but I can distinctly remember when, during the response time at a weekend service at my church, God called me to ministry. I can’t really describe it other than to say that in that moment I knew I that God was calling me to ministry and that I needed to go up in front of our church and share it with the Pastor and with the church.
Starting today, I each week I will share a song and how God has spoken to me through it. My hope is that God will use this to speak to you as well.
I would love to hear how God has spoken to you through music. Leave a comment below to share your stories.Matt Norman
