Did you know that you are an artist created for God’s stage? To be known by God is the greatest honor for all “new song” singers and players!
The new song originates in the heart. It can be inspired by many things. But it is OUR OWN new song. The Psalms try to help us understand our connection to God’s music – His creation symphony.
The word new means to “renew” or “repair.” The usage in Revelation (Greek) adds the nuance of a song which is “fresh.” What are the ways music renews you? Repairs you? Gives you a fresh outlook? Lifts your spirit?
When we sing our own new songs they emulate the God-relationship people experienced in the God Story. This great song is extended into our unique songs.
The concept of a “new song” is presented clearly in the Psalms (33:3; 40:3; 96:1; 98:1; 144:9; 149:1). “Sing for joy in the LORD, O you righteous ones; praise is becoming to the upright. Give thanks to the LORD with the lyre; sing praises to Him with a harp of ten strings. Sing to Him a new song and play skillfully with a shout of joy.” – Psalms 33:1-3
It also occurs in Isaiah 42:10; Revelation 5:9; and 14:3. – a great study as well!
Sing it out my friend. Sing it from your heart!
