Most Americans knew little about Alexander Hamilton. Until 2015, when Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote his hit musical Hamilton. Now schoolchildren know Hamilton’s story by heart. They sing it to each other on the bus and at recess. He’s their favorite founding father.

God knows the power of music, and He told Moses to “write down this song and teach it to the Israelites and have them sing it” (Deuteronomy 31:19). God knew that long after Moses was gone, when He had brought Israel into the Promised Land, they would rebel and worship other gods. So He told Moses, “This song will testify against them, because it will not be forgotten by their descendants” (v. 21).

Songs are nearly impossible to forget, so it’s wise to be selective about what we sing. Some songs are just for fun, and that’s fine, but we benefit from songs that boast in Jesus and encourage our faith. One of the ways we “[make] the most of every opportunity” is when we speak “to one another with psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit.” So “sing and make music from your heart to the Lord” (see Ephesians 5:15–19).

Songs can be an indicator of the direction of our heart. Do the words make much of Jesus? Do we sing them whole-heartedly? What we sing will influence what we believe, so choose wisely and sing loudly. What’s your song?

Thanks for joining us for today's encouragement from the Our Daily Bread devotional reading is titled what you are so it was written by Mike Witmer. Most Americans knew little about Alexander Hamilton until 2015 when Lynn Manwell Miranda wrote his hit musical Hamilton now schoolchildren no Hamilton story by heart.

They sing it to each other on the bus and at recess is their favorite founding father, God knows the power of music and in Deuteronomy 31. He told Moses to write down this song and teach it to the Israelites and have them sing. God knew that long after Moses was gone when he had brought Israel into the promised land. They would rebel and worship other gods so he told Moses, this song will testify against them because it will not be forgotten by their descendents. Songs are nearly impossible to forget. So it's wise to be selective about what we sang some songs are just for fun and that's fine but we benefit from songs that boast in Jesus and encourage our faith. One of the ways we make the most of every opportunity is when we speak to one another with psalms and hymns and songs from the spirit so sing and make music from your heart to the Lord. Songs can be an indicator of the direction of our heart.

Do the words make much of Jesus do we sing them wholeheartedly. What we sing will influence what we believe, so choose wisely and saying loudly today's Our Daily Bread devotional Scripture reading is from Deuteronomy 31 verses 15 through 22 then the Lord appeared at the tent in a pillar of cloud and the cloud stood over the entrance to the tent and the Lord said to Moses, you are going to rest with your ancestors and these people will soon prostitute themselves to the foreign gods of the land they are entering they will forsake me, and break the covenant I made with them and in that day I will become angry with them and forsake them.

I will hide my face from them and they will be destroyed many disasters and calamities will come on them, and in that day they will ask have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us and I will certainly hide my face in that day because of all their wickedness and turning to other gods now write down this song and teach it to the Israelites and have them sing it so that it may be a witness for me against them when I have brought them into the land flowing with milk and honey. The land I promised on oath to their ancestors. And when they eat their fill and thrive. They will turn to other gods and worship them rejecting me and breaking my covenant, and when many disasters and calamities come on them.

This song will testify against them because it will not be forgotten by their descendents. I know what they're disposed to do, even before bring them into the land I promised them on oath, so Moses wrote down this on that day and taught it to the Israelites. Let's pray heavenly father, thank you for the power of music and how it can be used to remind us of your truth and goodness when life is difficult. We feel discouraged, please bring a song of remembrance to her mind and remind us of your faithfulness in the past and how you always overcome. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
