The second component of true worship is the use songs. There are all sorts of songs in the kingdom. We are encouraged to sing in our understanding and also to sing in the spirit — the Holy Spirit singing through us —as we add tunes to our prayer language.
When you are worshipping God, the song does not have to be in sync with the beat. Many people assume they cannot worship God effectively unless they dance to reggae beats.
That is not true because when you are in worship, you are singing songs from your spirit to the spirit of the God who sits upon His throne and this does not have to suit any beat. Songs trigger the spirit behind them. The songs you sing take you back to where they came from. If it is a song of Zion, it will take you back to the presence of God where it originated from. There was a young man who had some songs that whenever he sings them, demons gather around him. In the same way, when we begin to sing the songs of Zion it has an effect in the Spirit.
Songs of Zion come from heaven; God gives songs to His minstrels to help His people worship correctly. Any worship session in an assembly that leaves you desiring sex and disinterested in the message the pastor is preaching next is a strange song. Wisdom is justified by her fruits. Give yourself fully to the songs of Zion; when we worship, Zion is in session. The Holy Spirit sings through the spirit of our God and we join to sing.
PRAYER: Lord, deliver me from the appetite for strange songs. Deliver me from any unclean spirit that has crept into my life through strange songs inside and outside church in Jesus’ name.
