Use your violin to accompany songs from scripture

Good Morning Heavenly Father. Thank you for your Word filled with the truths we need in this life. Thank you for sending your Son to redeem and save us. And thank you for the scripture to use for today’s prayer for your daughter Lindsey:

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places. To the chief singer on my stringed instruments. (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

Lord, here I am. I’m here as usual to pray for your daughter you love. And the scripture for today includes something I had not noticed before, even after reading Habakkuk many times over the years … it ends by specifying it was for the chief singer, the song leader or choir director and is to be accompanied by stringed instruments! And so today I pray this over you Lindsey. I pray that the stringed instrument you play can accompany scriptures… can accompany songs from scripture. I pray that God will reveal more of this to you today and that he will give you many opportunities to use your violin like this. And the glory is to God. He gets all the glory. I pray this in the name of Christ Jesus, King of kings. Amen

NET:
When the fig tree does not bud,
and there are no grapes on the vines;
when the olive trees do not produce,
and the fields yield no crops;
when the sheep disappear from the pen,
and there are no cattle in the stalls,
I will rejoice because of the Lord;
I will be happy because of the God who delivers me!
The sovereign Lord is my source of strength.
He gives me the agility of a deer;
he enables me to negotiate the rugged terrain.

(This prayer is for the song leader. It is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.)

NLT:
Even though the fig trees have no blossoms,

    and there are no grapes on the vines;
even though the olive crop fails,
    and the fields lie empty and barren;
even though the flocks die in the fields,
    and the cattle barns are empty,
yet I will rejoice in the Lord!
    I will be joyful in the God of my salvation!
The Sovereign Lord is my strength!
    He makes me as surefooted as a deer,
    able to tread  upon the heights.

(For the choir director: This prayer is to be accompanied by stringed instruments.)

KJV translation note

The King James Version is a beautiful translation of the original Hebrew and Greek, however I sometimes find Old English hard to understand fully. 1 or 2 other translations can help clarify what it is saying so I can understand it. More Info CLICK: References
