“Now, bring me a musician.”
While the musician played, the Lord’s hand came on Elisha.
Music brings with it a sort of mysterious power. Imagine, this musician ushered in the Lord’s hand. Through this music he played, whatever it was, the Lord’s hand came upon His prophet and His Word and direction came to the people. I don’t want to read too much into this but I believe it is safe to assume that music is a powerful medium created by God. It can move the prophet’s heart and the Lord’s hand. For all who are musicians, it is a sobering thought that even Father God Himself is moved by our melodies. Music itself seems to flow from the very heart of God. It I no wonder that it so often changes the mood of a worship assembly. If it can move Father God Himself and His prophet, we should not be surprised that it can move us.
