Sing a New Song

Psalm 98:1 “Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things.” After another amazing inner healing session on Monday night, my ministers asked me to spend some time before the next session asking the Holy Spirit what other areas He wanted me to uncover. In prayer this morning, God gave me a picture of when I brought my violin into school to perform Twinkle Twinkle at show and tell. After my performance, the most popular kid in my class stated emphatically, “the violin is cool.” That was 35 years ago, but I remember it like yesterday. As the minority kid who got bullied and excluded, the enemy wanted me to believe that music’s purpose was to gain affirmation from those around me. He wanted to manipulate me, and to use me to manipulate others through music. He succeeded for many years, but today I feel God is cutting that off and calling me to sing a new song. The truth is that music, like money or power or fame, is a gift from God that can be used or misused. The more I find my worth in Him, the more I find he blesses me with these worldly things, because receiving them won’t impact my intimacy with Him. Lord you’ve been reactivating some dreams I had long ago about music. I declare that I want you and you alone. But today I feel you declaring that we’re ready to move forward in those dreams, because I’ve finally uncovered the root of a twisted relationship I’ve had with music for so many years. I repent for that relationship and I replace it with the one relationship that truly matters. Thank you for forgiving me, and for the craziness you have in store. I can’t wait to see it. In your son’s name, Amen.
