Everyone has ‘their’ song. It may be one that was popular when you got engaged. Perhaps, it was your favorite song growing up or while in high school. What about a song that reminds you of your family? Or one that was popular during an unsettled time in your life?
Songs utilize harmony to ensure that their melodies are sweet, soft, sour, irritating, piercing, loud, pleasant, or singable. They can bother your psyche or provide solace to your soul.
King David was known for his ‘songs’ for the Psalms come from the Greek term psalmos which means a poem that is to be sung to a musical accompaniment.
Today, God led me to Psalm 40:3 and 4: And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God; many shall see it, and fear, and trust in the the Lord. Blessed is that man that maketh the Lord his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.
Sometimes, it is difficult to separate truth from lies. The thing is, however, that lies are always eventually found out. It may take weeks, months, or even years but a liar is continually caught. Many lies catch up to those who deliver untruth; though they may believe they cover their tracks and are safe. The internet is great at spreading half-truths and lies. It pays to take what you read as ‘probable’ rather factual. Things that you believe are important should be researched thoroughly before you believe them as truth as lies spread quickly and even when facts win out the damage of said lies may already have been done.
Christians would do well to remember to praise God and attempt to trust Him more for we are blessed that He cares for us and wishes us to turn aside pride and lies and simply walk with him.
It is a new year. What song will you make for yourself this year? Make sure you remember to ‘sing praise’ in silence or out loud every day to God!
