A new song | Psalm 40:2-3
He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the Lord. Psalm 40:2–3
One of my earliest memories as a child was the clear, powerful soprano voice of my mother. Each day, I would hear her singing a hymn or one of her favorite tunes while she worked.
On a crowded Sunday morning, I could always depend on finding my mom if the congregation was singing. All I had to do was zero in on her voice. It always rose above the others. She was leading the worship whether she was in the congregation or on the stage. She has always been a beacon of praise.
When I was little, I thought she sang because she was happy. But as I got older, I realized there were times she sang when I knew things weren’t going well. That was when I discovered she didn’t always sing hymns and praises because she was happy. Sometimes, she sang because she needed to worship and give her cares to God. As a result, He put a new song in her heart. She knew where her help came from.
Maybe you are going through a difficult situation. The Lord hears your cry. He can lift you up from the miry clay and put a new song in your mouth today.
