“Sing to the Lord a new song.” Isaiah 42:10
It’s New Year’s Eve. It could be a time of riotous celebration or it could be time to reflect on the new song we wish to sing to God next year. What will our new song sound like? Will its melody be uplifting or melancholy? Will our best hopes and dreams be in front of us or behind us? Our view of God’s presence, before us or behind us, will determine the key, major or minor, and the tone of our song. Will it be a hymn of praise? Will it be a hymn of thoughtful doctrine? Or will it be a song of lament?
God tells us to sing this new song. He says it often in Scripture. The New Testament tells us to sing in our heart spiritual songs. We are the author of these songs. We are the composer of these songs. They are our songs. What will be our new song this year? Let us reflect on the goodness of our God and let that guide our composition.
Dear Father, Receive our new songs of praise in this new year. Amen.
