Because to rejoice with singing takes more effort and commitment.
Now, I might be biased on this subject since I’ve been a professional singer for more than half my life. But I’m not just blowing smoke either. In fact, I can show you where even God “will rejoice over YOU with singing.” Yes, YOU.
I believe there would have to be love for Him coming from you, but I don’t consider that a difficult task. I hope you don’t or won’t. Take a minute to soak that in, though. God, the Creator of the universe, of Heaven and Earth, and of every living creature…likes to rejoice with singing. A second definition of rejoice is: “cause joy to happen”. Do you get that? It’s a subtle, yet very important distinction. You could look at it this way.
God’s singing can bring you great joy.
Talk about giving you your daily bread! Can you imagine the beautiful voice of God rejoicing over you with singing? He invented music and singing. He invented the larynx for goodness sake. So, His must be the ultimate voice, and He will “quiet you with His love” while He rejoices over you with singing.
I don’t mean to sound repetitive, but I really want you to grasp the magnificence of this wonderful verse in the Bible. You’re not insignificant and small to God. You are His beloved creation. He formed you in your mother’s womb. He knit your bones and muscles together with His words. And He knows the number of the hairs on your head.
He loves you.
So, if you find yourself overwhelmed with love in response, dust off your larynx, warm up, have a cup of coffee or tea, and show God how much you love Him in return. Do yourself, and Him, a favor and rejoice with singing.
