Agreat release comes to the Christian who is thankful. Even in the midst of difficulties, his heart overflows with the joy of the Lord. Although Satan's attacks are specifically designed to bring discouragement, the act of giving thanks brings protection for our souls and minds.
We have been released from the captivity of sin, redeemed by the blood of the Lamb, Jesus Christ, and His Resurrection power is now at work in us. His mercy is our dwelling place. We are His people and He is our God (Jeremiah 30:18-22). These are the themes that should ring out from within our hearts.
In 2 Chronicles 5:13, trumpeters and singers were appointed to "make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD." Each morning, noon, and evening, this group was to stand and give thanks to God.
God told David to have the singers praising Him in the temple all day and night. They were to be paid just to sing. God wanted them to sing around the ark because He loves to be thanked and adored. He uses it to fill the hearts of others with thanksgiving.
When you hear the singers sing, thank God, join in, and worship from your heart.
