When we think of the word ‘Alive’, what comes to our mind?
We think of something that is alive and not dead.
The Bible tell us in Ephesians 2:4-5: “…God, Who is rich in mercy, for His great intense love with which He loved us (even when we were dead in sins) has made is alive together with Christ!”
Are we made alive? If so, then our praise, worship, words should be streaming with life and generating life in the atmosphere. Now my question is… Is our praise and worship (words & songs) of the same level as it was when we were saved, maybe five, ten or even twenty years ago? Well, the Lord convicted me that my praise was the same. We all will agree that if we repeat the same things again and again, it could become routine or even boring.
For example, if we love a popular Indian dish called ‘Biryani,’ could we eat it every day? No! The Bible says that the mercies of God are new every morning. If God comes to us with the newness of His mercies daily, then would it be appropriate to offer the God and maker of heaven and earth – the same routine prayers, praise, and worship? God is creative and He delights in newness.
The Psalmist encourages us to sing new songs to Him Psalms 33:3. He says excitedly in Psalms 40:3 – “He [the Lord] has put a new song in my mouth…” In Psalms 96:1 he tells the whole earth to sing a new song unto the Lord!
Wow! How good and beautiful it is to sing a new song of praise to the Lord! God has put a love song in everyone’s heart. So sing it out to Him. Let Him know how beautiful and amazing He is and how wonderful His works are. Apostle Paul exhorts us in Hebrews 13:15 to offer unto Him a continual sacrifice of praise. He states further in Romans 12:1 that we should present our bodies as a living sacrifice [worship] that would please God. And you can be sure He would be delighted!
In fact, everything in heaven is alive and there is continual singing unto Him. The angels behold His beauty and continually sing new songs to Him.
Beloved of the Lord, He has placed new songs of beautiful praise in your heart. All you need to do is just bring them out!
God bless you!
