and all the sons of God shouted for joy.”
Job 38:7 NKJV
Did you know the morning stars still sing? Though most scholars say the “morning stars” in this verse were probably angelic beings, other scriptures tell us that the celestial bodies do indeed declare, and sing, the glory of God.
The Hebrew word for sang in this verse means to creak (emitting or making a harsh or grating sound), to shout usually for joy, or to cry aloud. It’s very interesting that the Bible uses this word in other verses in regard to created parts of the earth. Such as these…
* “the trees of the woods shall rejoice” 1 Chron. 16:33 NKJV
* “the outgoings of the morning and evening rejoice.” Ps. 65:8 NKJV
* “Then the heavens and the earth and all that is in them shall sing joyously.” Jer. 51:48 NKJV
* “Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord.” Ps. 96:12 NKJV
The stars, and the rest of creation, not only show forth God’s handiwork in the universe but also sing praises!
According to a report by BBC News science correspondent Pallab Ghosh on October 23, 2008, scientists recorded the sound of three stars. (You can read the article here.)
The article reported that the team working on this project found that, for the first time, the sounds enabled them to gather information about the inner working or processes of the stars. Each star has its own individual sound, depending on its “age, size, and chemical composition.” The sound of each star they recorded indicated what is occurring inside the star and that “the entire star is pulsating.”
God spoke and all matter came alive at the sound of His voice, at His Word. All matter contains molecules, and, within those molecules, atoms flow and circulate in resonation. The dictionary says resonance is a resounding, a reinforcing and prolonging of sound by reflection, to pulsate with the same frequency as the source.
Does the fact that the stars pulsate with sound strike you as awesome? It does me! The outward sounds, or singing, reveal that they resonate with the same frequency as their Source.
Within that matter is God’s voice imprint, still to this day, resonating in the entire universe, within every molecule, every atom, and every cell of every created thing – plants, animals, planets, sun, moon, stars, mankind, everything. His Word never dies, for the Bible says, “the word of God which lives and abides forever…the word of the Lord remains forever,” (1 Peter 1:23, 25 Received Greek Text) whether that Word is His written Word or His spoken Word. It is still alive.
The living, breathing Word of God is eternal and gives “life and breath and all things to all.” (Acts 17:25 RGT)
Just as the stars, each of us has our own individual sound, depending “age, size, and chemical composition” as the result of what is occurring inside of us, pulsating with the same frequency as our Source.
Has God’s Word been created in your heart? Is there a resonance and reflection of its inner working? Does your heart sing with praise to its Creator?
What did Jesus say? “I tell you that if these should keep silent, the stones would immediately cry out.” (Luke 19:40 NKJV) Will creation sing the praises you forget to sing?
Sing any tune. Make up any words. But sing to your Beloved. Sing the praises of the One Who deserves them. Sing to the Creator of the universe.
Sing and resonate with the same frequency as your Source.
