Sounds Real Good

Psalm 133

How wonderful and pleasant it is
when brothers live together in harmony!
For harmony is as precious as the anointing oil
that was poured over Aaron’s head,
that ran down his beard
and onto the border of his robe.
Harmony is as refreshing as the dew from Mount Hermon
that falls on the mountains of Zion.
And there the Lord has pronounced his blessing,
even life everlasting.


What does it mean to be blessed and what is the blessing?  To be blessed is God giving you and I the power to do what he intended us to do.  It’s the power of God for us to multiply, to be fruitful, & to be healthy.  The blessing takes effect as we live together in HARMONY.  The forming of harmony is amazing.  When the combination of simultaneously sounded, musical notes come together to produce chords and chord progressions that have a pleasing effect you have HARMONY.  Harmony sounds distinctive and absolutely recognizable. It sounds real good. So, it’s no shock that God wants us to live in harmony.  Verse 2 describes harmony as the anointing oil poured over, running down, and reaching the very bottom of Aaron’s robe.  Harmony should spill over to others when it’s contagious in us.  Folks sometimes think if there is harmony there can’t be trails.   This is erroneous.  We are supposed to go through trials but not let the trials get inside of us.

Harmony produces unity.  More than ever we need to be united in vision and purpose.  There will be no power to do what we are supposed to do when there is no unity.

Matthew 12:25 New Living Translation (NLT)

25 Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart.

Pride keeps us from being divided. Proverbs 16:18 says:

Proverbs 16:18 New Living Translation (NLT)

18 Pride goes before destruction,
    and haughtiness before a fall

People who get negative and critical usually have no unity, no harmony in their life. Moreover, if this person is in a church they breed disunity.  Make no mistake the only way to get rid of disunity in a church is for the brethren to strengthen the harmony of unity with in the church.  Resulting in the negative, critical people fleeing.  Passion for the cause of our ministry requires unity.  A Harmonious year is in store for you and for Victory Outreach Ministries.
