Sing To The Lord A New Song

I will sing a new song to you, O God; on the ten stringed lyre I will make music to you, to the one who gives victory to king, who delivers his servant David from the deadly sword. (Psalms 144: 9-10)

Sing to the Lord with thanksgiving; make music to our God on the harp. (Psalms 147:7)

Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit. Speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your heart to the Lord, always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. (Ephesians 5:18-21)

The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia says, ” In Col 3:16; Eph 5:19 Paul bids his readers sing “psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.” Gregory of Nyssa (4th century) distinguishes these as follows: the Psalms were accompanied by instruments, the hymns were mainly vocal, and the song, ode, was a general term comprehending both.”

Based on the Scripture passage above, when we are filled with the Holy Spirit, we will naturally express our praise and thanksgiving in psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. We will use our abilities and talents to play a musical intrument to give glory to our God.

Let us choose to seek God and ask for His control in our lives. This will help us become sensitive to what He is doing in our lives – the marvelous deeds He does in answer to prayer and how He is fulfilling His purposes for our lives. Whenever we see how the Lord is moving in our lives, we will surely have a new song in our hearts.

Together, let us sing a new song unto the Lord.
