S – Scripture: Psalm 149 : 1-4 ( TPT )
Hallelujah ! Praise the Lord !
It's time to sing to God a brand new song, so that all His holy people will hear how wonderful He is! May Israel be entrusted with joy because of Him, and may the sons of Zion pour out their joyful praises to their King.
Break forth with dancing! Make music and sing God's praises with the rhythm of drums! For He enjoys His faithful lovers He adorns the humble with His beauty and He loves to give them victory.
O - Observation
God loves us to be creative in our worship and to sing fresh expressions of love and joy to extol our wonderful King. David loved to dance before the Lord and make music, to be adorned with His beauty, living in victory.
A - Application
Don't be hesitant to be expressive in our Praise and Worship, we have a Wonderful Saviour, King, Deliverer who delights in His faithful lovers, to adorn us with His beauty and gives us victory in life's challenges.

Dear Heavenly Father I thank you for the joy you put in my heart and the song upon my lips as I think of how awesome you are, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, and it is with great joy and thankfulness that I am able to come before you with praise in my heart, as a Church Family united in purpose we push back the powers of darkness from our city with Songs of Praise to our God. Amen.
