Open Heaven for Today 27 November 2019: [Wednesday] – A New Song
A NEW SONG – Wednesday November 27th 2019
Memorise: 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. Psalm 40:3
Read: Genesis 32:9-10 (KJV)
And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the Lord which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee:
10 I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands.

In Genesis chapter 28, Jacob became a fugitive because of his deceitful lifestyle. He ran away from the comfort zone of his father’s estate into the realm of the unknown.

In the course of his flight, he got to a place where his strength could no longer carry on, and so he stopped to rest, using a stone as his pillow. He was so tired that he did not feel the hardness of the stone on which he laid his head. He even slept so deeply that he had a dream! When he woke up the following morning, he made a vow that showed his desperation and dejected state of mind. He said in Genesis 28:20-22:

“…If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God: and this stone, which I have set for a pillar, shall be God’s house: and of all that thou shall give me I will surely give the tenth unto thee.”

Thankfully, in Genesis 32:9-10, we see this same Jacob singing a new song, indicating that he had become a new man who had been blessed beyond his wildest imagination. His testimony shows that when the Lord in His glorious majesty shows an individual His mercy, that fellow’s song will change. How marvellous it is that a single man on the run with just a shepherd’s staff could now testify that God’s favour had multiplied him greatly, so that he now had a large family, two bands of men, women and assorted of sheep and oxen.

Another great example of an individual who was given a new song to sing was Hannah. The Bible says this about her in 1st Samuel 1:10&13:

“And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore …Now Hannah spake in  her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard: therefore Eli thought she had been drunken.”

This is in sharp contrast with her new song of joy in 1st Samuel 2:1, which says:

“And Hannah prayed, and said, My heart rejoiceth in the LORD, mine horn is exalted in the LORD: my mouth is enlarged over mine enemies; because I rejoice in thy salvation.”
Just as the Lord changed Hannah’s song, He is able to change your song too.

What has been your song so far this year? Have you been rejected and downcast because of things have not been working out for you? The Lord is ready to change your song before, this year runs out. Only believe and hold on to His word to you today. I pray that by the intervention of the Lord, you will sing a new song this season in Jesus’ Name.
Prayer Point
Father, please do a new thing in my life that will cause me to compose a new and beautiful song for You, in Jesus’ Name.
