The Wonderful Gift Of Music


Music is
so beautiful that all creatures respond to the rhythm. This includes flowers,
insects, lunatics, birds, infants, fish, men and angels. I can’t just imagine how lonely the
world would be without the wonderful gift of music. Music enlivens the world
and brighten our dark and gloomy days. Indeed, without the beautiful melody and
harmony of music, the world would be so dim and boring.  Music is so vital to our lives and
well-being, its effect on our emotions is so tremendous: it for instance
soothes and calms us even when we are angry. It is so because whenever there is
a sound of good music we find ourselves in harmony with its rhythm or lyrics which
instinctively and profoundly resonate with our lives, situations, experiences,
trials, challenges,  desires, feelings,
or beliefs. 

 Music is one of the most beautiful and first
gifts that God gave to mankind just to demonstrate to us the great importance
of music to our existence. The Bible mentioned music right from Genesis
4:21saying “And his brother’s name was Jubal: he was the father of all
such as handle the harp and organ”.

 Music brings joy to our lives and can also be
a great remedy in times of hurt and pain. We need music when we are sad and
when we are happy; and if only we can open up our hearts like flower to
beautiful songs, we would experience from within us a refreshing beauty,
blooming and flourishing like never before. The type of songs that precede from
your mouth will determine so many things about you. Proverbs 18:20″A man’s
belly shall be satisfied with the fruit of his mouth; and with the increase of
his lips shall he be filled.”

 Music is a beautiful language that when well
composed moves the listeners to ecstasy or tears either by the rhythm or

 Personally, I don’t think this world would
have been this harmonious and blissful without the wonderful gift of music. On
several occasions, music has helped to resolve problems and chaos between
couples, people, communities and nations.

 Good music brings harmony to the universe and
also connects the earth to heaven in unison. Whenever there’s a sound of good
music, all creature and nature join in a majestic and artistic synchronization,
moving men, angels and birds to sing along, 
even as mountains, (Isaiah 55:12) oceans and trees clap (Psalm 98:8) to
produce sweet and melodic rhymes that pay homage to the profoundly creative
mind of the ultimate Creator.

 I truly feel very privileged to be among the
few vessels through which sweet melody and the harmony of the spheres flow. I
truly feel honoured to be a music maker. I owe all I am today and all I will
ever be to Jesus my Saviour and King. I would never have been what I am today but
for the grace of God: There  many out
there, who are much more gifted than me but are still wandering, aimless,
nameless, and unknown somewhere in limbo- land, some have even died unsung,
uncelebrated with their gifts. Again, I am not in any way better than them, it’s just the mercy of God. I am
really grateful to God for using me because He could have used someone else. I
would rather use my songs and music to bring melody and joy to the lives of
people and not be paid than being paid millions of dollars to ruin lives.

 Several passages of the Bible especially, the
book of Revelation, tells us how the saints and angels are singing ceaselessly
before God in heaven to reveal to us the creator’s great love for music, and since human beings
are created in God’s very image, we are also framed to love and have passion
for music. This is why even little babies are excited and highly responsive to
beautiful sound of music by shaking and moving their bodies to the tune. It’s another reason why many
parents use songs to comfort and cheer their babies whenever they are crying or
happy. Parents also sing lullabies to make their babies/children go to sleep.
It is also said that children who are exposed to good music are usually more
brilliant and smarter than those not exposed to good music.

 Music is one of the fastest and best ways to
spread information. Music makes it much easier for us to remember instructions,
specific teachings, and general information. It can also be used to remind us
of the past. People can easily forget what they have been told, but they don’t easily forget songs they
have learned or listened to, that’s why God told Moses in  Deuteronomy 31:19 saying  “Now therefore write ye this song for
you and teach it the children of Israel: put it in their mouths, that this song
may be a witness for me”.

 Good music brings people with different
tongues and colour together and foster good relationship between them.  That’s why it is very difficult to find a
good advert, a TV show or movie without a piece of music in the background. It’s rare to find a very big
gathering of people celebrating some events or regular church services without
good music. Churches with good music always attract more people than those who
do not have good music. 

 From research, I have come to realise that
most songs that have touched the world and remain evergreen on the lips of
many, are  songs with pleasant universal
themes such as love, nature, courage, gratitude, faith, victories, fearlessness,
determination, bravery, honesty, racial harmony, family ties, friendships,
humility, purity, incorruptibility and so on. But it is so sad that the trend
of music today has evolved into a farce. It is shockingly becoming a highly
deceptive medium for misleading people into wrong thinking and wrong doing. It
is a medium that is very, very negative, toxic and morally destructive. Above
all, it is spiritually deadly. There’s been myriad of stories about how songsters
and musicians have practically sold their souls to the devil just to become globally
famous and phenomenally successful with financial networths running into
hundreds of millions of dollars, aside an immensely growing and astounding cult
of followers. Many talented artists and songwriters have deviated from creating
good music to making sexually explicit offensive and bland songs that have no
capacity to comfort, encourage or give joy. The truth is that each time such
songs are relayed on radio, TV or on the internet, the message gradually
percolates into the eardrums, the mind and the soul of the listener,
especially, when played frequently. Listeners, naturally begin to sing along to
such music subconsciously, even though it’s a bad song.
