Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Ephesians 5:19-20 KJV
By surrounding oneself with praises and worshipping God, it opens the window for God to dwell in us and wherever we go. Faith believes in what we can’t see. By praising God for the unknown and recognising that he is great, is the key to faith.
The same way we should pray without ceasing is the exact way we should praise God always. He deserves all our praises, it is by his Grace and Mercy we are not consumed.
Ephesians 5: 15-17 NIV states:
*15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is*
Throughout Ephesians 5 verses 8 to 20 it spoke about how we should be different from those in the dark and the fruit of those who are in the light (in Christ) which consist of all goodness, righteousness and truth according to verse 9.
Now, let us check ourselves and deep something, if we want to build FAITH in GOD, we have to be children of the light, we have to draw towards him like a moth to the light. Also, the term “light” also represents guidance. If one is in darkness, they can’t see anything and are only led by what they can feel and that is usually panic and chaos. Whereas, those in the light walk in Christ and are intentional about knowing his ways, and it’s through this FAITH dwells in us. And that is because, as we walk in the light, we are simply telling God I can see your goodness, and I recognise it, therefore, I know the God that I serve, and I choose to have FAITH in you, for your works are perfect before me
I’ve heard the tale of Yonder Land
Where air is hale and gold, the sand;
‘Tis said the way to Yonder Land,
Be full of dread that minds go bland,
For even the brave have lost heart
And their courage, torn apart;
But ’tis also said of a part
Of men who though, they having warts,
Reached the Land and now recant tales;
Of the Land where no man is pale
For there’s no noise, nor is there rale,
For all there are hearty and hale
And the Ruler there is good and kind;
For His heart is set on mankind
For He seeks that all men should find
His Land so joy will fill his mind.
I was also told tales of the King
Who for love’s sake, gave everything;
And called all with their load to bring
So He’ll carry them; so they can sing;
For ’tis said the symphony there
Is pleasant music to the ear,
For all men do is rejoice there
For the King is glad at men’s cheer
I heard that there’s only one Way
But some miss it, even at day
And for it, they dearly pay
To find it, I was told to pray
Indeed my heart was filled with cheer
For men’s tales said I need no tier,
But I was told to expel fear
And not grow weary and despair.
So I was given A Guidebook
So that I will know where to look;
As well as follow every nook
Even though I be called a kook.
