Have you ever walked through the forest or down a country lane and listened to the different songs of the birds? Each one has been given a different note by the Creator. The sparrow, the bluebird, the meadowlark, the cardinal, and so on. Their songs are unique and special and combine in the Creator’s choir for His pleasure and ours.
Just as there are all kinds of birds with all kinds of songs, so there are all kinds of people, and to each believer God has given a song to sing. We can each say, “He hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God” (Psalm 40:3). While it is true that some of us can carry a tune and sing better than others, yet the Lord wants to hear our voice. David declared, “I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the Lord” (Psalm 27:6).
Let’s open our mouths in songs of worship, praise, and thanksgiving today. Nineteen times in the book of Psalms, we have the expression “I will sing.” Here is another example: “My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise” (Psalm 57:7). As we meditate on the person and work of Christ today, it will certainly cause us to “sing unto the Lord” (Exodus 15:1).
