Releasing My New Sound
My social media posts from the Holy Land illustrated clearly that my life was wrecked in the supposed tomb of my Lord and Savior. I say supposed because although the site of Jesus’ burial is very likely to be The Garden Tomb location, it cannot be proven because of the mere fact that there is no body! Hallelujah! Jesus Christ is the risen Lord!
My soul would say that the barren grave site is indeed where they placed my Lord after His crucifixion. As soon as I stepped into the small and dark space, my heart exploded with thanksgiving to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit! I could not stop weeping and rejoicing! The lyrics from the song, “Resurrecting” by Elevation Worship took over and I sang “Your Name is Victory!”
Earlier this month, I attended the National Youth Convention with my church’s young people. Pastor Choco de Jesús ministered at one of the evening services, and his charge to the thousands arrested my passion! He said that the world needs the sound of celebration!
Yes! I am all in, Father! May my strength be spent rejoicing in Your victory already secured in Jesus!
Reflecting on the soul-gripping words of Psalm 40 this week, I am reminded to release the new song the Lord placed in my heart while I was in Jerusalem. Jesus is victory. Truly! Yeshua means victory. This is my song. May the sound of celebration be clearly identifiable through my life: I’m not fighting for victory; I’m secure in the victory already fought and won! That is my Jesus!
“He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear and put their trust in the Lord” (Psalm 40:3).
