A New Song for Many to Hear

In Psalm 40, David rejoices that he has been pulled from the miry bog, and feels a holy obligation to proclaim his deliverance far and wide. If David were to keep God’s mighty work to himself, he would have to restrain his lips, hide his deliverance, and conceal the love of God. Instead, he sings a new song, telling of God’s glory in the great congregation so that many will see and fear, and put their trust in God. David doesn’t greedily keep his faith hidden, but shares it with the world. As you come to worship today, don’t privatize your faith: gladly join in to the shouts of praise and prayers of thanksgiving. Don’t keep God’s faithfulness hidden!
