His April Music, the music of spring, do you hear it? It is in the morning and late in the evening, a chorus of birds with the waking up or settling in at night with a song, perhaps a lullaby over their eggs or chicks. It is in the air, in the fragrance of a rose, the sweetness that is Christ. Our three babies have already flown from the nest.
It is that aroma that is in the fragrance of His sacrifice for us. It is in the heartbeat of the rhythm of the sunlight dancing upon the water, and the beat of butterfly wings, the grasshoppers hopping and the crickets chirping and a choir of other creepers who chatter praises to the Lord.
It is in the moon and the dusk, the stars unfurl like a blanket over the night and settle in before the moon, as if to listen to its heavenly recital and the peaceful declarations upon the slow moving clouds that drift through blue gray and black skies, they carry angels and chariots and the music of the Spirit, and the stars clap their hands and stand in ovation, we see the twinkling in their eyes.
Worthy is the lamb, holy, holy, holy. Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised. 1 Chronicles 16:25. Give thanks to the Lord for h is good, His mercy endures forever. Psalm 118:1 Taste and see that He is good. Psalm 34:8 Give thanks to the Lord for He is good. His love endures forever. Psalm 107:1. What do you the music is? What would the stars and singers say in praise? There are so many praise phrases.
Praise Him in the heights sun and moon and all you shining stars. Let’s look at the psalm, they are all about music. Psalm 148: 1-6, the link contains the other eight verses. https://biblehub.com/esv/psalms/148.htm
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD from the heavens;
praise Him in the heights!
Praise Him, all his angels;
praise Him, all his hosts!
Praise Him, sun and moon,
praise Him, all you shining stars!
Praise Him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!
Let them praise the name of the LORD!
For He commanded and they were created.
And He established them forever and ever;
He gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.
You can be sure of His April Music, the flowers and trees blossom and bloom, angel gather their harps and halos, and head into a nightly concert praising the Lord. If there were no people to praise Him even the rocks would cry out. Whatever the season the Lord has His music, in the changing colors of autumn, the winter winds, the summer’s splashes of joy.
And yet spring is a season unlike any other with remembrance of His resurrection, we want to praise, and we want to bow in humble worship, we should be on our knees before our Maker and in awe of His April Music. Rebecca Jones
