What's your favorite song of all time? You have to stop and think about it, huh? There's so many great songs out there to choose from. Personally, I just can't narrow it down... it's far too hard of a task to do. With so many genres of music from several different time periods, how can anyone ever pick just one song? Especially, when you can't even remember some of those classic jams until someone mentions it or you hear it again out of the blue.
But I can think of a few songs that would likely be within my top 20 or so favorite songs of all time. I love the legendary Anita Baker. Virtually any song she's made can make my list any day of the week. Her songs "Sweet Love", "Caught Up in the Rapture", and "Angel" name just a few of her timeless soulful songs. I also love the sultry and powerful voice of singer Adele. Her song "Someone Like You" is a perfect heart-breaking love ballot. I love The Script's "Breakeven"... I can't put my finger on it but it's just something about that song that I like. And I love "I Need You Now" by Smokie Norful. I can just feel the gospel singer pouring out his soul on the track.
But what I didn't know was that God Himself was described as a song in the Word of God.
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Lord Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
Yet, when I pondered this scripture, I realized that God is undoubtedly a song. Music is a safe haven for so many people... so is God. Music makes us feel care-free and just downright good on the inside... so does God. Music can also make us reflect on the conditions of the world and sometimes even ourselves (e.g. Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" and Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror"). Lord knows, one thing about Him, He will make you reflect on your character and the character of those around you.
So, I think I'll take my initial statement back. I do have a favorite song of all time, and it's not that hard to narrow down either. My favorite song of all time is my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ a.k.a Jehovah Jireh a.k.a El Shaddai a.k.a Jehovah Nissi.... I'm sorry, beg my pardon. He has A LOT of stage names.
But you can bet your bottom dollar, whenever He gets on the stage, He's the best performer of all time. There's not an artist dead or alive that can hold a candle to the type of performances He can put on in our lives. Ask the woman with the issue of blood, ask the woman at the well, ask the twelve disciples, or ask little ol' me.
I will vouch for Him. I will always vouch for Him.
He's the sweetest song I know, and He has the best stage presence I've ever seen in my life.
Yep, yep. Jesus Christ, the best song I'll ever know. I'll dance with Him until the end of time.
