“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel; he came and set his people free. He set the power of salvation in the center of our lives, and in the very house of David his servant.” Luke 1:68-69 The Message
You can’t stop God’s message. He’s going to get it out .. to announce His offer .. and then offer you freedom and a saving life in the very center of who you are. You can’t control God’s Spirit. More often than not you’ll find yourself singing a long ago planted song. Can’t sing…? The news never stops the Lord. Shepherds .. Wise Men, barn animals .. an old prophetess named Anna and old man named Simon who was waiting .. had been waiting a long time for this moment. … and he got to sing it out. The broken-hearted are filled with hope. The religious find a God who is personal and throws His doors open to all who respond. The earth sings it .. the seas cannot contain it .. and the news just keeps getting out. When you belong to Jesus, the Holy Spirit is always working in your life .. opening up your voice to speak .. reminding you over and over that He is with you .. and that the Life you live is a gift. May He loosen up your voice! Blessed is the Lord who made a new song when He created you. He only takes a moment ..
“Sing God’s brand new song! Earth and everyone in it, sing! Sing to God –worship God! Shout the news of his victory from sea to sea. Take the news of his glory to the lost, News of his wonders to one and all!” Psalm 96:1-3 The Message
