Re:Verse reading–1 Samuel 16 (day seven)
Let them seek a man who is a skillful player on the harp; and it shall come about when the evil spirit from God is on you, that he shall play the harp with his hand, and you will be well. 1 Samuel 16:16
As Saul’s kingship spiraled out of control the only calm he found was David strumming the harp. Typically, a harpist would be relegated to the background, left in the halls to fill the court with idle notes, but not David. David’s music healed. I hope when we step into worship this morning we are expecting to be healed through the music. Our music is not meant to be idle or merely entertaining, our music together is more. The music speaks to the glory of God and teaches our theology note by note. Do not overlook the music as a moment for growth and healing. A song may be just what you need.
