Today we looked at Psalm 104:33 “I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.”
This week as I was preparing for today’s devotional time I was struggling on a topic! As many or you know I drive a lot for work and when in the car I rarely even have the radio on but the last few weeks I have been drawn to The Message channel and I have heard some very amazing songs that definitely help me to focus on our Lord Jesus!

So yesterday I was reading Pizza Ranch Serves and this is what I read and felt God saying music is the message:
A Conversation at Life Light
For many reasons, this was a different LifeLight: a yearly Christian Music festival south of Sioux Falls SD, a ministry Pizza Ranch supports. One of the differences was Sunday night when within an hour of each other you would hear Michael W. Smith and then LeCrae. You couldn’t get any more “diverse” in terms of genre and appeal. Michael appeals to more of the older crowd, while LeCrae to the younger.
On Sunday, in our Pizza Ranch hospitality tent I had a conversation with a big, tall, strong man and his two kids about who they were most excited to hear. They said LeCrae without even batting an eye. But there is more to it. The man said that back in 2012 he gave his life to Christ because of LeCrae. He was an alcoholic and lived a messed up life. Then he heard a song by LeCrae and listened to the words—the lyrics—and it drove him to his knees. He’s never been the same.
I don’t know the whole story and I don’t know the man, but I do know that in a moment, your life can be changed and you never know what or who will be used to change it. I also know that God uses music to impact people’s lives. Music is a powerful medium that often goes straight to the heart. And that is a reason for hope and joy.
This reminds me of our Living Hope and Mercy Me Christmas CD from last year and how those have changed people’s lives!
Today after you pray, I encourage you listen to this song “God is On the Move” by 7eventh Time Down and feel God moving in your life today!
Blessings to all and sing your praises to our Lord!
