The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.

– Psalm 28:7 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Music has always been a major part of the Christian tradition. Singing in harmony and written music came directly out of the church. What was the catalyst for this explosion of musical creativity? The Psalmist response to God was a joy that was so full that he had to respond in song. This is not a reaction of fear, but of incredible freedom. Our heart can leap for joy because in His presence is fullness of joy. This is the nature of God, and all of mankind has been blessed because of it.
