Songs in the Night
Job:35:10: But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;
Ps:40:3: And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD.
Music has been a prominent part of my life since childhood. Often, I will sing to myself in the morning. I recently noticed that the Lord gave me a new song every morning right after the alarm went off at 5 am. For example, these songs the last seven days: “My Lord Knows the Way,”; “When We All get to Heaven”; Doxology; “When We All Get to Heaven”; “My Lord Knows the Way”; “Are Ye Able”; and the Doxology. You will notice three repetitions: My Lord knows the Way, When We All Get to Heaven, and the Doxology.
I thought, “Isn’t this wonderful?” The Lord is waking me up with a new song each day. That’s when I started writing them down. Years ago, I started the habit of singing a happy melody after I got up. Usually, it was a chorus like “This is the day that the Lord Hath Made.” It helped me to get the day started right with the Lord.
Indeed, the Lord does give us a song in our hearts if we know Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. He causes us to rejoice. Why not sing it out loud to ourselves – and anybody else in the house – and get the day started right in praise and thanks to the Lord?
