Sometime ago, my younger daughter was resting on my legs one evening, and she began to sing; “Channels of my spirit, Open Up!” She sang it repeatedly that my spirit was stirred; the atmosphere suddenly changed. Something was provoked that day.

Friend, what atmosphere are you creating around your life? Songs are one of the tools for creating the right atmosphere. Actually, songs are vehicles for spiritual traffics; divine or demonic. Atmospheres determine happenings. When the atmosphere around you is not the way it should be, check what you have permitted; check your practice.

A minstrel is not just a singer or musician, but someone who can bring down God’s presence upon a person or a place (2 Kings 3:15). Songs will always take you back to where they are taken from. A minstrel gets into divine presence to receive songs that drive men back to God. Whereas a singer stirs our bodies, a minstrel stirs our heart or spirit.

Learn to sing spiritual songs (Colossians 3:16). You don’t have to be a chorister or musician to sing. You only need to learn how to convert scriptures to sounds. This is why the word of God must dwell in you richly. The depth of God’s word in you will determine your accuracy of worship.

Songs provide an atmosphere for divine communications (Isaiah 30:29-30). Songs herald the presence, power, and glory of God (Psalms 47:5). When the right song is present, divine presence and manifestation would be a normal experience (2 Chronicles 20:22).

The source, the spirit, the singer, and the substance are all important factors to consider in songs. There is a spirit behind every song, and whoever sings such songs come under the influence of such spirit (Isaiah 61:3). Some ungodly songs carry the spirit of nudity, recklessness, rascality, rebellion, disorder, etc. Spiritual songs also bring you into the experience of the Source and Spirit powering them. Be well guided.
