MUSIC WITH ANOINTING
TEXT: 2KINGS 3:15
â€œBut now bring me a minstrel. And it came to pass, when the minstrel played, that the hand of the LORD came upon himâ€ (2Kings 3:15).
Music has a lot of impact on listeners because it appeals to their emotions. It is pertinent however, to note that not all kinds of music bring edification to the souls of men. There are kinds of music that promote lust and immorality. Christian youths must choose carefully songs that will promote godliness and sanity. According to Lou Rawls, â€œMusic is the greatest communication in the world. Even if people don’t understand the language that you’re singing in, they still know good music when they hear it.â€ Good music comes with special anointing which breaks yokes. Davidâ€™s anointed music cast out evil spirits from King Saul. Morally and spiritually polluting music is being churned out to the public everywhere, of late. Even so called gospel songs have become tools of the devil to promote ungodliness and worldly lust. Genuine believers must shun musical perversion. Sacred music when approached with the right attitude can heal your soul. Paul and Silas prayed and sang spiritual songs and the Holy Ghost came down to minister to them. Also, Jesus and the Apostles sang hymns together.
Challenge: Good music serves both healing and pleasure purposes.
Prayer: Guide me dear Lord to listen to good music.
Quote: Polluting music is being churned out to the public.
