While out in my backyard praying this morning, the sound of two owls could be heard in the background. As I moved about my threshing floor in prayer lifting my voice with their voices in the background I heard the sound of their wings as they moved to different locations in the trees behind me.
In addition to the sound of the owls, I could hear the sound of the birds ushering in the beginning of a new day. Creation was praising the Lord this morning. The owls were singing praise at the end of the night and the other birds are singing praise for the breaking of a new day.
My voice joined with their voices to sing praises to the Lord. Psalm 150 was my prayer partner this morning and joined in this time of praise as well. The Psalmist brought in instruments to add to the song being sung.
Psalm 150:3-5 “Praise Him with trumpet sound;
Praise Him with harp and lyre.
Praise Him with timbrel and dancing;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and pipe.
Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with resounding cymbals.”
The crescendo of sound coming from the Word added to the voices coming from creation as an experience of jubilation and celebration. Oh the joy of worshiping God with creation. “Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD!” (Psalm 150:6) May you add your voice to the voices of creation singing praise to our God. Night and day; day and night; incense of praise is truly arising before our God.
