A New Song

He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:3

There is incredible power in song. I am so very thankful for a church that lifts Him up when we meet together. Whether we sing a psalm, hymn, or spiritual song (Eph. 5:19), our voices proclaiming His goodness magnifies the Lord as we recognize that He is worthy of our worship. Our church family does a great job of making much of Him.
Music not only speaks to us but it also speaks to those who do not know Him. It touches our hearts and moves us to lift holy hands or even to be overwhelmed to the point of speechlessness. As we sang this past Sunday, I noticed one of my brothers in Christ wiping away a tear. I notice many things when leading from the platform, but I am deeply and humbly grateful to stand with God’s people when they unashamedly worship in spirit and in truth.
The last part of Psalm 40:3 indicates that through what we do by singing, we are engaged in evangelism. Vibrant, heart-felt singing of the Gospel allows the Holy Spirit to work on those whose hearts aren’t new, regenerated, or transformed. Singing isn’t just about us: it moves beyond us to reach the ears of God and others. May our desire be the same as the psalmist that many will see, fear, and put their trust in the Lord.
Wanted to say a big “Thank You” to our children in KIDZ PRAIZE and to their leaders and directors. The musical was fantastic! Parents, thank you for allowing your kids to be a part of this great ministry. Your support and dedication is appreciated, and we are excited about next year.


Allow God to put a new song in your mouth!
