Same Old Song

“It’s the same old song with a different beat,” and that’s what I remember about those lyrics. It reminds me of so many that I pass by in life as they sing the same old song. They never seem to move on to any other experience. They are just stuck in the past with no hope for the future. How many times does the psalmist say, “Hey, now that you’ve been given a new life, shouldn’t you be singing a new song?” (my translation)

If we are in tune with God, His praises should be on our lips.

Psalm 16:9

Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.

Psalm 31:24

Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.

Psalm 33:17

A horse is a vain hope for safety; Neither shall it deliver any by its great strength.

Don’t be trusting in some old nag.  Let’s hear you sing a song about the newness of life in Him.

Give it some thought.
