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 40:3
A New Song
Have you ever had a song stuck in your head? For me, that song right now is Baby Shark. If you have never heard of Baby Shark it simply means you don’t spend a lot of time around children because if you do you are well acquainted with Baby Shark. It is a simple song, with a catchy tune and because I have a toddler I hear it all the time. ALL THE TIME. It has been played so often in my home, in my car, and at my son’s daycare that it just plays over and over in my head now. The problem is, Baby Shark is not my song. Actually, I can’t stand it. Baby Shark is just the song that is stuck in my head because I have heard it so many times.
There are times in life that we have heard a song so often that it gets stuck in our head and we start believing it is our song. The song could be I’m not good enough. The song could be, I’ll never amount to anything. The song could be, I’m not worthy of being loved. That song may have been played for you so often that it got stuck in your head and you started singing it, but it is not your song. When the wrong song is stuck in your head you have to start playing new music and singing a new song. You have to find YOUR song. The song that reminds you that you are blessed and highly favored. The song that reminds you that your past is not your future and the best is yet to come. You have to find that new song and sing it relentlessly until it drowns out the old song and takes its place.
Friends, today is the day to change the tune. Today is the day to let God put a new soundtrack to your life. You see before you were born, God had shaped a future for you. He shaped a future that would lift you up and not tear you down. He shaped a future that would have some ups, and some downs, but would make you an overcomer if you just hold on to His hand. So today, let him put the song in your mouth that will lift you up, push you forward, and remind you that you are a child of the most high. Its time to drown out the old song, and sing a new song.
