FINDING VOICE

The Psalms and other verses in the bible call for us to “sing a new song” unto the Lord.

Have you felt ritualistic or repetitive in your prayers, as I have? I don’t say that it might be a bad thing to be consistent in response to the same graces that we enjoy each day, but the Lord does call for us to be creative and “new”.

Quite possibly it is  His position that each day brings us new blessings as an expression of His creativity and love,……..and the  recognition that our needs are ever changing.

I have felt, I’m sure as many have who write or express their other gifts of expression; that we dry up or fall short in our energies to be fresh and communicative.

I wonder if it is not the first thing for many of us to do is to open up the Word randomly and believe that God will speak to us though the text.

Feeling something of the above; I did just that this morning before church. It was in Isaiah 44 that I found  absolutely directed inspiration. In these verses Isaiah speaks of the carpenter, the blacksmith ( and most probably you and I) who crafts something which he declares to be the source for his livelihood , then they survey the leavings as something to used for their own satisfaction. The metaphor used is that it can be an idol; that in it’s own way can be be worshiped to God’s detriment.

In effect, what is being said is that all we have belongs to God. We may recognize our needs and satisfy our desires as long as it does not command our focus to the extent we lose our understanding of why we have been granted earthly gifts. More than that, our abilities to build ultimate fulfillment in life.
