I love gospel music. Not only is it encouraging in its message, to me its personal. It’s like the artists were thinking about me when they were writing the songs. When I listen to gospel music it’s like someone is speaking directly to me, to my situation. Then I step back and think, someone is speaking directly to me. It’s God. He was thinking about me when the songs were being written because He knew at some point in time that I was going to need to hear from Him. He uses all kinds of means to reach us in our time of need. We just need to have open ears and open hearts. Your message may come through a song, a sermon, a prayer, a conversation with a friend, or even directly from God himself during your quiet time. I can’t hear my music unless my headphones or speakers are plugged into the device that is playing it. Make sure you are plugged in and connected to God our Father so that you can hear from Him today.
