Psalm 40:2-3 “…He drew me up out of a horrible pit [a pit of tumult and of destruction], out of the miry clay (froth and slime), and set my feet upon a rock, steadying my steps and establishing my goings. And He has put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many shall see and fear (revere and worship) and put their trust and confident reliance in the Lord…”
God has taken us from the life we once knew, a life of tumult and destruction. He has pulled us out of the miry clay we were drowning in and set our feet on solid ground. He put a new song in our mouths. It is a song of praise and hope and of our testimony of the goodness of our God. We are witnesses of God’s goodness so that others can see the transformation that’s happened inside, and therefore, cannot deny the reality of our Lord.
We have much to praise our God for. We think of the life we had before when we didn’t know God, and how grateful we are that He saved us and delivered us from the hopelessness we once knew. This is the new song we have on our lips that speaks of hope, deliverance, life, adoration and God’s grace, mercy and goodness. Be mindful of this as you go about your day. God gave you a new song that testifies to your new life.
