-Psalm 33:3, 96:1, 98:1, & 149:1; Isaiah 42:10
When God works in your life it is always fresh and new. God is about redeeming us. He does new merciful work in our lives every day. New mercies, new deliverance, and new redeeming works call for new songs.
Even though we have and sing older songs that are good, we should have new songs to celebrate the new, and there will be fewer and fewer old songs on our lips, because there will be more and more new ones. We don't throw the old ones away, but God constantly gives us new songs to celebrate the new things He does.
God is always inspiring new songs. At one time, each song was new, and celebrated God's work for the people of that time. If you look up a favorite old hymn, you might find that the same poet or song writer, of whom you love their song; wrote hundreds of other songs. Each of those unknown songs were new and fresh, new songs, at one time, and graced the people who sang them.
When we sing a new song, our spirit's leap within us, because of the fresh message of worship to God that the song puts in our hearts. Since ancient times, there have always been new songs, because music and words contain endless combinations of expressions of worship and praise to God. God created us with the endless creativity or our creator.
When you select a greeting card or write a greeting or note, prose, or poem in that card, to your loved one; do you write the same exact words every time, or do you say something new? It takes some effort to say something, to write something fresh, but some people make the effort, and the receiver of the card is pleased.
The new song we sing is about what God is doing in our lives now. It is about what God just did for you. What new thing is God doing in your life? That is your new song. If you have no new song, you might not have anything to report on God working in your life. You might want to look again and re-engage with God and find out what He is doing in your life and get your new song.
God is always working. God is always redeeming. That is what God does. The Father is at work, on the move. What is He doing in your life? That is your song.
The new song is a celebration of God's redeeming work in your life. What's the new song, now, for you? What is the, "wow", the, "oh my", or the, "I stand in awe"? Experiencing God will give you those reactions.
God does new things all the time. What new thing has God been doing in your life? There is your new song. The old songs are fine, but God gives new songs. God is the living God who is active doing new things. Do you see the new thing He is doing in your life? See it and celebrate it with a new song.
