6 I will
sing to the Lord, Because He has dealt bountifully with me. NASB
To sing, is a reference to the strolling minstrel. You are just walking along in your life or in your own thoughts, singing from within your own soul.
This is a happy attitude, a comforting mental attitude, a feeling of confidence, inner peace and … well … happiness.
Bountifully, 'gamal,' is a reference to the perfect ripeness of a harvest of unlimited abundance.
This is not limited to just tangible things in life, like money or things or possessions. But it refers to the vastness of everything related to your life, the most significant of which is your spiritual status.
If you commit yourself to a daily bible study, that does not mean that life will be all rose petals, but in fact you will face turmoil and trouble just like everyone else, some problems more frightening than others.
But you will develop through your daily study, an inner resource of spiritual muscle and power that is like no other. You will learn to deal with life. You will learn to be properly oriented to life, to people, to our self, and especially to God.
You will develop an inner relaxed mental attitude, an inner peace, an inner poise that will help you deal with everything that comes along in your life, be they good things or bad.
The best part probably is when you realize all of the phenomenal blessings that God has provided for you (usually in hind sight), that have contributed to the maintenance of your life. Things that you generally have taken for granted or have not realized just how much you have been blessed at the time.
And when you finally realize just how helpless and worthless and insignificant you are on this planet earth, a speck of dust on a planet that is insignificant in a vast universe, and that through all of this, God has made available to you an inheritance, a future, a meaning and purpose, that are valuable beyond calculation, then you only begin to realize the magnitude of life and all that exists around you, and how lucky and blessed you really are.
And that is only a scratch on the tip of the tip of the tip of the iceberg the size of this universe and beyond.
Then perhaps within your heart and soul, the music will begin to swell up.
