img_5940Wrong. You have the wrong attitude. It’s not about you. It’s about God and your worship of Him. And clearly He deserves all our praises. The angels never get tired or bored of worshiping or praising God, never sick of the words, never!

We sing hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah and we don’t like it and some people even stop singing! As though it’s not important or relevant. 

Isaiah 6:1-4 when Isaiah is lifted up to heaven and sees the heavenly beings repeated these phrases praising God, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Heaven’s Armies! The whole earth is filled with his glory! Their voices shook the Temple to its foundations, and the entire building was filled with smoke.” 

I recall from Bible college that in Hebrew writings, repetition demonstrated great importance. Twice is huge, three times almost unheard of and exponentially important!!

Look at the words of the Revelation Song written by Jennie Lee Riddle and made popular by Kari Jobe. All those words come from Revelation 4:1-5:14! And right in the middle verse 4:8, we have an interesting insight – these creatures all gathered around with the Heavenly hosts… and the Bible tells us that they NEVER cease to say: “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”

From a human perspective, I don’t want to sing endless choruses of just a couple songs. More songs allows for more people to be hit with the words in their hearts. I also have a caveat: we should be singing meaningful, praiseful words, not fluff. 

My granddaughter Olivia has a very cute pink lamb that sings Jesus loves me. Look at the chorus of this children’s song! This great truth is repeated 3 times.

Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
Yes, Jesus loves me!
The Bible tells me so.

Look now at the Lord’s prayer: thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). Get ready for some mighty good praising God repeat songs. 

Inspired by Yeshua Cornejo on Easter Sunday at King Bible Church
