A ‘theme song’ is a signature song—one uniquely associated with a person, group or production. For example, the lyrics of a show or TV program’s theme song may tell the story of the main characters. A sports team may have its own theme song. Even nations have their own anthem.
Our lives, have a ‘theme song’. It is a metaphor for the unique blend of the message, atmosphere, and prevailing emotion that characterizes us.
Today I believe God is saying, “New theme songs are being released. And with this new sound, atmospheres are shifting. Destinies are being broken open!
A New Song is Piercing the Darkness
There was a moment when Miriam picked up a tambourine and led a song. It was a song never heard before in Israel—a new sound, a song of victory:
“Sing to the Lord,
For He has triumphed gloriously!
The horse and its rider
He has thrown into the sea!” (Exodus 15:21, NKJV)
As Moses and Miriam taught new songs of victory won to Israel, the old songs and melodies of sorrow from slavery, from generations past, became extinct.
Today, there is a prophetic sound being released. It is piercing the darkness. It is a new song; a song of victory.
Outdated Theme Songs are Being Replaced
Are there themes that have been carried forward from past seasons—even recent journeys of your life—that carry a sense of sadness or frustration?
God is releasing a new theme song over your life:
- It is the song of your identity intertwined with His
- It is the song of grace; of His salvation and redemption
- It is a song of victory; of new hope and anticipation of His goodness in your journey ahead
‘See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come’
You are Singing from Higher Ground
Today, if you been waiting upon God in the midst of trial; if you have felt stuck and unsure of your standing, the song of Miriam and Israel can be your song.
The victory that is not possible to you in your own strength, has already been won by Christ.
‘He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire;
he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in him.’
(Psalm 40:1-3, NIV)
Your Father is lifting you in His arms and bringing you to higher ground. That ground, that Rock, is Jesus. As you respond to Him, the Spirit of God is releasing a new sound from within you. God’s transforming power at work in your life will spill over and touch many others.
The Song of Deliverance is Your New Song
The walls of the Lord surround and protect you. They stand between you and circumstances that have threatened to overwhelm you. Listen—there is a sound; a song being sung over you by the Spirit of God and the angelic hosts. Hear a song of deliverance:
‘Your God has triumphed. That enemy is overcome. You are more than a conqueror in Christ.’
‘You are my hiding place;
you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.‘
(Psalm 32:7, NIV).
He says, ‘My love surrounds you. I am giving you songs in the night.’ (Psalm 42:8)
Your God is singing over you. (Zeph 3:14-17)
It’s Time to Dance
‘Then Miriam the prophet, Aaron’s sister, took a timbrel in her hand, and all the women followed her, with timbrels and dancing.’(Exodus 15:20, NIV)
For Miriam and Israel, the threat of slavery was at an end. Their former slave driver, Pharaoh of Egypt, could no longer pursue them. With that realization, came a new theme song and a dance of celebration.
- When Miriam was freed from slavery, she entered her destiny as a prophet and leader of women. Along with her, a generation of women was released into a new realm of praise and worship.
That enemy that has been pursuing you was destroyed at the cross. (Col 2:15) As recognition dawns, a new song is rising within you.
It’s time to dance.
