Music Everywhere

Daily Devotional2 Minutes

“From the outside to the inner gate were chambers for the singers in the inner courtyard.” – Ezekiel 40:44 NASB

In the vision God gave Ezekiel about the temple, he saw chambers for singers. These were places just for musicians. We have a sense that music was everywhere! We can imagine how glorious the sounds must have been as the music echoed throughout the chambers.

This picture reminds us of the importance of music to God. Admonitions to worship God through music fill the Bible. The Bible also calls us to praise Him with instruments and voices (Psalm 150:3-5).

We are told to “sing for joy” (Psalm 5:11). Music fills Heaven itself. There, “a new song” declares the Lamb is worthy (Revelations 5:9). There, all who were victorious “sing the song of Moses” (Revelation 15:3).

Music has been central to revivals throughout the centuries. In 1538, Martin Luther wrote, “With all my heart I would extol the precious gift of God in the noble art of music.” He described how God gave this precious gift to remind us that we are created to praise and magnify the Lord.

The world often uses music to entertain and celebrate the flesh, to exalt performers. But we need to remember that God created music and that music is part of His creation!

Today remember that God gave you music to provide an instrument of praise for you to worship Him with words and instruments. Celebrate the wonders of His creation through music!

Reflection Question: How do your favorite worship songs praise God?




Father, thank You for all You have done for me. I commit my time, talents, and treasures to You! May my life bring You glory! In Jesus’ name, amen.
