“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.”
• What was good in one season has become expired in a new season. Anything expired for a long time will become toxic.
• You may feel stuck in a season.
• Notes about scripture here!
“I waited patiently for the Lord; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. 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.”
• Suddenly is always preceded by a waiting season.
• Although our culture has made things faster and easier to access, there are still some things we have to wait for in life. Destiny is not a one-click thing.
• How you wait in the waiting room of life matters.
• We are to wait with a readiness. Do not pursue a million-dollar destiny with a two cent prayer life.
• We wait because:
1. We’re not looking! If you’re waiting for something, you need to be looking for it and expecting it. God cannot move a parked car.
2. We’re not ready for the next step. Sometimes you are in a “meantime” season to develop you. Just because you see what God has called you to, that doesn’t mean that you are ready for it. Example: Just because you see yourself married, it doesn’t mean you are ready to be married. Submit those waiting seasons to the Lord.
• How do we wait?
1. Through daily submission.
2. Through prayer.
3. Through community.
4. Through serving.
5. Obedience in tithes and offerings.
• God wants to put you on solid ground.
• Where there is no direction, there is no connection. This is why we wonder in seasons because if we are not connected to God, we get no direction from Him.
• The new song (new season) was given to David in this passage because he waited patiently for the Lord and he allowed God to give him direction while in the pit.
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”
• There is power in submission and this is what gave David confidence. He was submitted to a will that was greater than him.
• Submission welcomes God into your situation.
“Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;”
• God heard Jesus’ strong cries because of the reverent submission to Him.
• The key to your life is connection to God. You will never fulfill your purpose in life outside of being connected to God.
• When you feel beaten and tired, you may have lost connection to God. Example: a satellite dish out of position cannot receive a signal. You are the same. When you are out of position, you cannot receive a signal from God.
• When Elijah predicted there would be no rain, he had to wait for what he heard to manifest.
• God has spoken so much over us that we have to position ourselves for what he is doing.
• When we wait for God, He picks us up from the miry clay. Miry means dirty dirt. God is not intimidated by your dirty dirt.
• You’re not responsible for the timing of God, you’re responsible for the position.
