22 I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, my God;
I will sing praise to you with the lyre, Holy One of Israel.
23 My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you—I whom you have delivered.
24 My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long,
for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion. Psalm 71:22-24
Harp. Lyre. Lips. Tongue. All of them are instruments David used to praise the Lord.
Include in the mix drums, guitar, piano, clarinet, trombone, trumpet, saxophone, oboe, cymbals, sitar, hammer dolcimer, and any other instrument of your choice.
Make a joyful noise. David gave us four reasons in these verses. Certainly there are 4000 more in your life.
The eternal jam session we are invited to “on that day” will be nothing short of phenomenal. That’s why we have opportunity to practice down here.
Your praise may come from the beauty you create with an art brush or the way you have with the written word.
Some are content just to sit in silence and worship that way.
There are just so many ways and reasons to give praise to Our God.
