Why we sing loudly because our God sings loudly over us! This is a glorious, liberating verse for worship leaders and church members this weekend. God invites us to join in his song! He is rejoicing loudly over you and me this weekend. Why then should we not return the complement and exult over him? Yes, there is also a space for the “quiet” as he promises to calm us with his love. But if the great LORD GOD almighty is with us, and we believe he is, then why should we not be excited, expect him to act, and loudly worship him? If you are looking for a verse to start your worship service off with this Sunday, you can do a lot worse than this one:
The LORD your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
