Mighty love

John 3:16 tells us that He loved the world so much, He gave us His only Son to die for our sins. Those who believe in Him shall not perish in the second death but will have everlasting, eternal life. Psalms 59:16 also talks of His mighty love, well before Christ came to the earth. There are different translations but the words echo the same meaning. The King James version tells us : But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble. The New International Bible says it this way: But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble

Comfort in trouble, peace in the storm

His love is such a comfort in times of trouble. I have no idea what people of no faith cling to when dealing with stressful situations. The English Standard Versions tells us: But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress. It is important to sing of His love the first thing every morning because it will start your day with your mind on Him. He promises in Isaiah 26:3 to keep those who stay their minds on Him in perfect peace. We who believe must tell of His goodness and mercy and be the light in a dark world.

From one generation to the next


Psalm 89:1 CEB tells us: I will sing of the Lord’s loyal love forever. I will proclaim your faithfulness with my own mouth from one generation to the next. We are to tell the glorious story of Jesus to our children and children's children. It is important to share the gospel truth with new generations so they can do the same. The song When we all get to heaven talks about singing and shouting, but it's in the afterlife.

Sing the wondrous love of Jesus
Sing his mercy and his grace
In the mansions bright and blessed
He'll prepare for us a placeWhen we all get to heaven
What a day of rejoicing that will be
When we all see Jesus
We'll sing and shout the victory.

Yes we will sing and shout the victory then but it's important to do so now and be a witness for others.

Power and majesty praise to the King

Psalm 98:4 Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
break out in praise and sing for joy!
5 Sing your praise to the Lord with the harp,
with the harp and melodious song,
6 with trumpets and the sound of the ram’s horn.
Make a joyful symphony before the Lord, the King!

The song Shout to the Lord is based on this scripture and tells us to sing His praises in the here and now.

My Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty loveMy comfort, my shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship YouShout to the Lord all the Earth, let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your nameI sing for joy at the work of Your hands
Forever I'll love You, forever I'll stand
Nothing compares to the promise I have
In YouMy Jesus, my Saviour
Lord there is none like You
All of my days I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love My comfort
My shelter
Tower of refuge and strength
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You Shout to the Lord all the Earth, let us sing…

Verse 7 of the scripture: Let the sea and everything in it shout his praise!
Let the earth and all living things join in.
8 Let the rivers clap their hands in glee!
Let the hills sing out their songs of joy
9 before the Lord,

We can never exhaust the theme of God's love. "Shout to the Lord" is one of my favorites, and "When We All Get to Heaven" is a classic oldie. Your article in energizing. Thanks.
