33 - The Cheer

Why do we find it natural to Cheer for our favourite sports teams or musicians, but when it comes to worshipping God we seem to fall silent? You can even attend a school sports event and hear the wonderful cheers and war cries from the students. They all offer support and encouragement to their team mates. It is a fantastic thing to hear.

Sadly, we have developed a notion that 'quietly' praising God (and there is nothing wrong with this) is the only acceptable form of worship. However, there is also a call for us to CHEER for the Lord. The Psalms are the call for us to Cheer for Yahweh.

1-3 Good people, cheer God!
    Right-living people sound best when praising.
Use guitars to reinforce your Hallelujahs!
    Play his praise on a grand piano!
Invent your own new song to him;
    give him a trumpet fanfare." - Psalm 33 (Message)

I am sure that God doesn't mind how we "CHEER" for him, but it does bless God when we actually put some energy into it. So, if you prefer to use your voice, or guitar or grand-piano then use these things to Cheer for God.

Living in Grace
