“there’s within my heart a melody…”
Everyone has a song. Did you know that? It’s in the scriptures. Check it out:
He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him. ~ Psalm 40:2-3
Are you at a point where you are stuck in the miry clay? Perhaps you are in the slimy pit of destruction.
Once we are broken and cry out to God for help, then He will bring us up, lift us up, out of the trouble we are in. The trouble may not go away, but we have a different perspective towards it. God lifts us up and places our feet on the rock.
Who’s the Rock? Jesus
And what makes the firm foundation? Walking in Jesus…He makes our “footsteps firm.”
It is amazing to see people transformed when Jesus pulls them out of the pit. Oh, what a song they sing! Oh, what a testimony they can share! We are given a new song in our mouths as we sing “praise to our God!”
Why do we praise Him? Because we know He’s the only One who was able to pull us out of the clay. We were stuck fast. It didn’t matter which way we moved, we just sunk lower.
But oh the sweetness of praise that is on our lips when the Heavenly Father inclines His ear, listens to our cry of brokenness, and reaches down with His loving arms and pulls us out of destruction. How could we NOT praise the One who saved us?
AND…get this…AND IF you sing your song of testimony, then “many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him.”
Isn’t that awesome?
Perhaps you have been asking yourself, “Why has this happened to me?” or “Why is this NOT happening to me?”
Maybe it’s because God wants you to sing a new song. One of praise and thanksgiving, so others might see Him in you.
“He speaks and the sound of His voice is so sweet that the birds hush their singing
And the melody that He gave to me, within my heart is ringing.
And He walks with me and He talks with me
And He tells me I am His own.
And the joy we share as we terry there
None other has ever known.”
