Psalm 40:3 “He has put a new song in my mouth, praise to our God; many will see it and fear, and will trust in the Lord.”

Welcome to 2017, we thank God for fulfilling His promise of enlargement in our lives in 2016. This year the Lord has declared that He will give us new songs because He will restore all we have lost, no one shall be left behind in Jesus mighty name.

Has the Lord been good to you in 2016, has He answered all your prayers, has all His promises for the past years for you been fulfilled? If you are saying like me ‘oh there are two or three requests yet to be met’; I want to let you know that God has not for gotten you nor any of His promises, be encouraged, He has a better solution than your expectation. That you are still alive to witness this year is an assurance that it is not over with you yet, better days are here and you will sing a new song.

Sometimes we lose our song. The pressures of life, the pressures of family problems or the pressure of sickness snatch our song. And some morning we wake up and realize it has been awhile since I caught myself singing. I think the Psalmist found himself in that situation. He has been bogged down by the problems He faced. He has apparently lost his song.

Have you lost your song today? Has the devil sucked you up in his vacuum cleaner? Has the devil caused you to lose your song? The devil’s done his best to get you discouraged. The devil’s done his best to get you to give up and quit! He’s done his best, but His best isn’t good enough! You see, we serve a God who’s greater than any devil. He sucks us up, but we just keep coming out! When you come out of the devil’s vacuum cleaner, you have to shake yourself and then you have to trust God to give you a song again as He has promised us for this New Year.

David cannot help but lift his voice in praise to the Lord for His grace in delivering him from that horrible pit. David wants to praise the Lord for what the Lord has done for him. David had always had a reason to praise the Lord, but now he has a fresh and new reason to do so. He has experienced a unique manifestation of the grace and work of God in his life and he wants to praise the Lord because of it.

Beloved, this is going to be your testimony this year; you shall experience complete restoration that will bring a new song to your mouth. Where before there was bitterness, darkness and hopeless; there will be joy, light and peace. This change in the heart will put a song on the lips because what’s in the heart will always work its way out of the mouth.

Happy New Year, rejoice for the Lord will put a new song of joy in your mouth.

Shalom,
