Bible Text: Psalm 98
TOPIC: SING TO GOD A NEW SONG
“Sing to the LORD a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have worked salvation for Him.” Psalm 98:1, NIV
Kenneth was diagnosed of a heart disease by medical consultants after he suddenly collapsed. The doctors told him that he must distance himself from some food and heavy objects. Resolved to find a better solution, Kenneth decided to seek the face of God in fasting and prayer for seven days. On the third day, God visited him and he was healed of the strange disease. He also gave him a new song at the end of the seven days which he sang in church when he gave his testimony.
The psalmist recounts the salvation and righteousness of God towards Israel for which a new song should be sang to Him. The wondrous way God manifested His power to Israel to save them from their enemies has proven to the nations that our God is faithful and greatly to be praised. With different musical instruments, all are enjoined to sing and praise the Lord.
God can give you a new song for that unpleasant situation you are experiencing. Stand upon the unfailing promises in His Word. Never doubt His love and faithfulness and you will see the salvation of the Lord.
Insight: A new song is the practical response to divine visitation of salvation and deliverance.
Prayer: Lord, let me sing a new song to magnify Your name among the nations.
