Building Faith, Day 21 – So Many Songs

December 25, 2015

Psalm 21 is a warning for our enemies. God’s strength prevails against our enemies when we trust in Him. “God will swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire will destroy them.” Wow! Shades of Jonah, swallowed by the whale. God decides whom to destroy. He did not let the fiery furnace consume Shadrach, Mechack, and Ahbendigo. God controls the whales and the fire, so don’t mess with God’s people. Do you see the message in Psalm 21 repeated in a Christmas song:

“God rest you merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay. Remember, Christ the Savior was born on Christmas day.”

The song reminds us that nothing will separate us from God’s love and mercy. “Good Christian friends, rejoice in heart and soul and voice,” we sing. We rejoice in the strength of the Lord, and in our salvation. Be thou exalted Lord, and we will sing of thy strength and power.

Psalm 21 concludes, “With music and singing will we celebrate your mighty acts.”
