03 Aug Songs of Comfort and Strength | Music Mondays
Whether written as prayers and petitions, praise and thanksgiving, or promises of commitment, the hymns of our Christian faith tell the story of God’s faithfulness and of his great love.
Some hymns were penned as a response to adversity and sorrow. Others burst forth as expressions of exuberant joy, yet all are timeless. Although they have passed from generation to generation, their ability to bless and comfort has never diminished because they are based on the truths of the Word of God—and God’s truth never changes!
In dark and difficult times, recalling the words to these precious songs can offer “comfort and strength”. In 1 Samuel 16:14-23, a distressing spirit of the Lord tormented Saul, and it was only when David played the harp that Saul found peace.
