Same Old Song

Psalm 33:3 Sing to Him a new song

Psalm 40:3 He put a new song in my mouth…

Psalm 96:1 Sing to the LORD a new song

Psalm 98:1 O sing to the LORD a new song

Psalm 144:9  I will sing a new song to you, O LORD…

Psalm 149:1  Praise the LORD! Sing to the LORD a new song

Isaiah 42:10  Sing to the LORD a new song

Revelations 5:9 …and they sang a new song

Revelations 14:3 …and they sang a new song before the throne…

In and through out the Bible I have noticed when God is really stressing a point, that we often will over look HE will say it over and over and over..probably because HE knows how easily we don’t get it, how very good we are with it not getting it, and often we would rather sing the same old song.  Whether it be musically or in testimony, or in our day to day routines.  With each new song that HE has laid on my heart and on my lips, I am content with it.  But I am to want a new song, a new experience, and a new closeness to HIM.  That is really the only place where the new song developes. 

I was once very touched by a womans testimony, and after many years I heard it again, it didn’t have the same impact on me.  May be because I heard it before..maybe because I thought “wow, all this time and HE hasn’t done anything new in your life”… and I thought.. “sing a new song“, not  because the old is bad or has no relevance, but because what had once ignited her fire, seemed to be only a flicker.  While thinking this through, a few questions come to mind;

– Does the impact of the Lord on a heart start to fade without a new song, or experience?

-Isn’t life meant to be lived, therefore new experiences and a new song developes?

-Do I have a new song, do you?
