Music is not something that God created.  It is not primarily a construct or experience or entity He came up with so that our lives and worship experiences would be more delightful or enhanced or anointed.

But rather, true Music is an uncreated reality that has flowed from the heart of the Trinity for itself since eternity past.  It is and always has been, first and foremost, a unique and organically Divine manifestation and passionate expression of love and adoration from the Father to the Son and to the Spirit, and from the Son to the Father and to the Spirit, and from the Spirit to the Father and to the Son.

And when God created Creation, He included aspects (shadows and types) of this original glorious music in those things He created — and most powerfully and importantly, He included it in us.  And that is why music — any kind of music — in one way or another, is so powerful.

But by far the most powerful experience is when we surrender our instruments (especially our hearts!) to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to express His Music through us.  For when we do this, it is not just a type or shadow or echo or created ability that is pouring forth worship to the Father and to the Son (although even that can be wonderful, and is truly appreciated) — but rather it is an uncreated, glorious, infinite flow of eternal adoration that flows from the very heart of God.

“For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things.  To Him be the glory forever!  Amen.”   (Romans 11:36)
