Music Therapy

I often get asked the question do I listen to rap music?  The answer is yes however I must admit that I tend to listen to this music when I am experiencing certain emotions namely frustration and anger.  Whether we want to admitted or not music carries a spirit. 1 Samuel 16 describes how Yahweh selects the next king of Israel.  The Bible says that after Samuel anointed David the Son of Jesse the Bethlehemite that the Spirit of the Lord rush upon David and that the Spirit of the Lord departed from Saul.  It then goes on that Yahweh sent an evil spirit to torment Saul.  The only thing that could comfort Saul when bothered by this evil spirit was David's playing of his stringed instrument (lyre).  This suggests that the music you listen to can affect your spiritual health.  So the:

  • Next time someone makes you upset turn on a little gospel music and watch the atmosphere change.
  • Next time you want cussed someone out turn on a little gospel music and watch the atmosphere change.
The Bible says when David played for Saul it brought Saul relief.  How many know like Rance Allen and Kirk Franklin that," There Is Something About The Name Jesus," that brings comfort to a downtrodden spirit.

Scripture Reference: 1 Samuel 16
