One evening, I was driving down the expressway very hurt and upset and crying about our music ministry. Through my sobs, I heard God whisper this question to me: “What are the angels doing right now around my throne?” I responded that they were worshipping. He asked me what they were saying. Instantly, I remembered the scriptures about the angels in the throne room of God and began to weep harder.

Combined, Isaiah 6:1-3 and Revelation 4:8 read something like this: “I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above Him were living creatures, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling one to another. Day and night they never stopped saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come. The whole earth is full of His glory.”

He also reminded me of 1 Samuel 16:23 and how when Saul was tormented by an evil spirit, David would play his harp to calm him cause the evil spirit to leave him.

God used these verses to affirm us as a minstrel and psalmist. He enjoys our adulation towards Him. The angels’ worship around His throne was pleasing to him and also prompted others to worship as well.

I am encouraged now when God gives us simple choruses and phrases and melodies. I know that there is a place for these expressions and that these ‘God-songs’ have great affect with peoples’ souls.
