Singing a New Song

God gave us a new song:

“He put a new song in my mouth…a hymn of praise to God”.  Psalm 40:3

Something like Bach only not.  It is not an file000551198693morguefileemotional intoxication,  Beth says:

“It’s the unleashed anthem of a freed soul.”

“Nothing on earth clogs the windpipe like the polluted air of pit.”  Beth Moore

How often do you have a song on the tip of your tongue?

“I’m talking about a unstopped outlet of frequent compulsory praise?  Of a raptured spirit?  Of a Sabbathed Soul?  Beth Moore

When trouble hits can you still sing like that?  Even with tears coming down like rain?

A song like that full of praise freely sung and spontaneously offered?

That is a trademark of joy in tribulation.    Beth Moore

In the pit completely you know you have lost your God-song. Your hope is gone.

“Likewise, you know you are out of that pit when not only have your songs returned, but something fresh has happened.  God has put a new song in your mouth.  A brand-new hymn of praise to your God.”

A new song doesn’t mean we are out of that pain that caused our pit or the pain the pit caused.  Or if sin pit, the consequences are not behind us yet.

  • It just means we are no longer stuck.
  • Our vision is returning.
  • Hints of creativity are reemerging.
  • It’s a New Day.
  • God doesn’t hate us,  We Are Forgiven and we Know It.
  • You want to praise Him.
  • You become hopeful.
  • You absolutely know you are not going back to that pit.

You could come out of a season of difficulty where a new Christian Contemporary Song or a Praise and Worship Chorus or an Old Hymn becomes the expression of a fresh wave of love and awareness of Christ.  Which is meaningful and will be a reminder forever but:

What the Psalmist means is more like a whole new level of praise begins to erupt from a delivered soul.

“Sit up a little”, Beth asks of us, “Shake the numbness from your head and pay some extra mind as you read something else the Psalmist testified to God:”

You are my hiding Place;file0001593230053.morguefile

You will protect me from trouble

and surround me with songs of deliverance.  Psalm 32:7

  • If you’ve been in a pit, God wants to deliver you!
    • Take it seriously!
      • Take it joyfully, gloriously!

Christ, the King, the Creator of the Universe, seeks and surrounds you with songs of deliverance!

He put a new song in your mouth, a hymn if Praise to God.

Many will see and fear

and put their trust in the Lord.”  Psalm 40:3


I hope you are enjoying this book as much as I am.  Feel free to drop me a note of encouragement from you to me if you want.  We only have one more chapter to go.

Next blogging/journaling I will do will be more random things I think about or run across or guest bloggers.  I personally will be doing a Precept Class on the book of the bible, Hosea, starting September 15, 2016.  I might blog tidbits from it.

  1. Waking up every day with praise in my heart. Choosing first to sing praise in my head in tense situations (driving, cranky people) helps me to keep that smile on my face. 😍

    1. Unleash your freed soul sister. Amen. I am always smiling inside but hubby says I frown often. No reason to though. Except my lack if patients with ungodliness I see every where. Oh to be a true mystic.
      Thanks for the reply.
