I enjoy the older songs and hymns that are more in tune, in my opinion, with how I worship and when unbelievers hear them, they will realize what He has done and can do. The songs of praise, which most of the newer songs are, are songs of praising God for His great love and creation. As believers, we need to praise God for what He has done and will do in our lives. I think we need a mixture of each to be able to worship Him.
I love the Lord and want to worship Him with all my heart and mind. I want to keep His commandments and do His will. Satan wants our attention and will do whatever he can to get it. Remember he is a fallen angel, a dark angel, and will try to make us think he is an angel of light. He likes and enjoys the cartoon image the world has given him, the little red devil with a pitch fork, this makes him look cute and gives him the attention he wants.
The things we need to remember is that we need to keep our mind centered on God, not to let our focus go to other things and that we have the Holy Spirit to guide us.
Here is a post that I posted in October 2012 that I want to add to this post:
Did you ever hear anyone make the statement -- The enemy or Satan did that or caused that. I have heard conversations where people will give Satan or demons more credit for things happening in their life then they do God. When we do this, we are not centering our mines on God and praising Him. Satan can do no more then what God allows him to do, God allows things to happen, and you can know this by reading the book of Job. God uses these things to make us strong and grow in our faith. God is creator of all things and is in control. The truth is we are in a spiritual warfare but we must keep our minds and hearts centered on Jesus, He has defeated Satan and we have the victory.
Many over emphasize spiritual warfare blaming every sin, problem, and conflict that comes their way on Satan or demons. We are in a spiritual battle at all times and we cannot ignore the spiritual world.
So when things do not seem right in your life praise God and remember you have the victory over the enemy through Jesus Christ.
But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 NIV
No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us. Romans 8:37 NLT
In this way, God disarmed the evil rulers and authorities. He shamed them publicly by his victory over them on the cross of Christ. Colossians 2:15 NLT
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 NIV
yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live. 1 Corinthians 8:6 NIV
always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ Ephesians 5:20 NIV
[Test the Spirits] Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 1 John 4:1 NIV
Be careful! Watch out for attacks from the Devil, your great enemy. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for some victim to devour. 1 Peter 5:8 NLT
Keep you eyes upon Jesus and he will see you through.
JESUS HAS WON THE VICTORY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
