Old Testament Songs | Discerning God in Song Episode 01

Host: Steve Macchia, Guest: Dave Currie

A song is the quickest route on the longest journey – 18 inches from the head to the heart and then back again.Dave Currie

Our own leadership discernment grows as we enter into others’ experience of noticing God in worship and song. We get to know others from around the world as we sing their songs. This has been true since the dawn of time, and is expressed throughout the Scriptures. In the Old Testament, particularly the Psalms, we find God’s people singing in times of triumph, lament, confession, thanksgiving, and praise. Words are the poetry that point us to God and the melody expresses the overflow of emotion. When we sing we pray twice. We hold songs in our heart.
