S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
I will sing a new song to you, my God.
King David was perhaps one of the most creative humans who ever lived. Here are just a few of his gifts. He was a warrior extraordinaire. He was a writer. He was a poet. He was a singer. He was a musician. He was a leader. Most of all, he was a man after God’s own heart. It must have been hard for his followers to keep track of him sometimes because he was such a doer. He was always on to the next thing. Here he said to the Lord, “I will sing a new song to you, my God.” Maybe the word from the Lord to you this AM is, “Get Out Of Your Rut!”
The battle in our Christian faith is always, will we stay in a relationship with our Maker, or will we allow the relationship to evolve into a religion? I love the old hymns of the church. They make me think back to warm times and fabulous experiences. Sometimes during an old praise song or worship tune, I can connect that song to a certain event that took place in my life. But you know what? In each case, it causes me to think of yesterday. Now, I’m not against yesterday, but sometimes yesterdays can hold you back. Over and over again in the Psalms, King David would say, “I Will Sing A New Song To You, My God.” Why? Because new songs are usually built on faith for the dream you have in your heart versus a look back to the “good old days.” This morning if you’ve been guilty of singing too many old songs, “Get Out Of Your Rut,” and learn a new song. Believe in even greater things to come.
This AM I’m thankful in my heart for a new song. I confess I don’t always learn the words like I should right away but I’m working on it. I need a new song so I can keep trusting you for “Greater Things “in my future. Amen
