Your Body Needs To Sing!
Sing A New Song!
Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
Our thoughts are the language of the brain and our feelings are the language of our body.
You can’t always tell what someone is thinking but their body might be showing you what they are feeling. Our body holds the posture of our heart. Our body holds our stories of hurt, pain, trauma, joy, peace, and more. As you move your body, your body tells a story.
I’ll often hear this phrase, I know what God's word says but I don’t feel it. (Meaning, the connection from the head to the heart, in this case, the body.) When our bodies have been programmed and wired to believe and feel one way it will take time for your body to begin to tell a new story.
We get stuck in our bodies, in the same spot, because our body becomes our mind (so to speak) and begins to rule our thought life. It becomes the engine and not the caboose. Therefore we are letting our external environment, everything we can see, touch, smell, and taste become the control room that goes against the gospel.
The gospel tells us to live by faith. (Faith that it has already been done and taken care of.)
The gospel tells us to have hope. (Hope that has a confident expectation.)
The gospel doesn’t tell us to live by our senses or by facts. (Facts have their place but don’t get the final say.) The gospel tells us to live by the word of God.
If you feel stuck and in a rut, it’s time to tell yourself a new story and
Sing a New Song to the Lord.
It’s time to take your thoughts captive and make them obedient to Christ. God is so amazing that not only did He create our bodies to heal themselves but that He also created our bodies to follow our thoughts. (Not the other way around.)
This renewing and healing process will take time as the old story has to be ended. Scripture reminds us that it is about faith and patience. Even when we don’t see it, we still get to pursue Him because we know He is faithful to fulfill His promises.
“Sing to the Lord a new song;
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.”
What new song (story) will you be declaring with the Lord today?
