If we sing, they will hear!


Psalm 89:1(NLT)
 1 I will sing of the Lord’s unfailing love forever!
      Young and old will hear of your faithfulness.

Sunday evening, almost in the middle of the praise and worship, a lady and her son peeked into our church and moved into one of the back rows.

She started to cry during the sermon. She was obviously going through a very tough time! We allocated some prayer time for people that needed a miracle in their lives. Almost everyone came out for prayer, including this precious lady.

I prayed for her, but she cried so much that we had to go into a prayer room where she shared her story with me. A story of pain and hurt, but also a choice to come back to the Lord a few months ago. This specific Sunday she was however despondent and without hope and she decided to search for some alcohol just to numb the pain.

She and her eleven year old son walked past the church just as we were worshipping. Her son was the one who encouraged her to walk into the church.

She told me that she believed God let her hear the singing and because of that she turned to Him again for hope and healing!

Sometimes when you sing of God’s love and His faithfulness, you are not even aware of the fact that people might be listening to you! Even more miraculous, that maybe a person`s life can be changed.

There are many broken people in this world. Some of them just need to hear that God is still a loving and faithful God. Although God can send a legion of angels to praise His name, He chooses to use our voices!

Will you sing of His unfailing love? Young and old will hear, and some of them will turn back to Him!
