I was recently playing a piece that was composed by one of the members of the ensemble. When we weren’t sure about something written in our music or needed to make a musical decision we obviously turned to the composer for his authoritative help. After all, the piece was what he imagined hearing, what he envisioned. Many musicologists explore this kind of firsthand input from the urtext (original score) of great works of music penned by composers of the past.
Psalm 124:8 says, “Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Like the composer of a piece music, God is the one we can turn to for help in all of life. While life often feels noisy (especially with four kids in my house!), somehow the God of all creation hears all of it. He continues to orchestrate all things for the good of those who love him–He’s Intentional. Not sure what part you are to play in life today? We know who to ask.
