Do you have a prodigal? Do you long for your spouse to return to God? Do you have a friend whose faith has grown cold? God wants them back more than you do. Keep praying, but don’t give up. God places a song in the hearts of his children.
Psalm 40:3 says it’s a “new song in my mouth.” Some saints sing this song loud and long every single day of their lives. In other cases the song falls silent. Life’s hurts and happenings mute the music within. Long seasons pass and God’s song isn’t sung!
Truth is, we don’t always know if someone has trusted God’s grace. It isn’t ours to know. But we know this: Where there is genuine conversion, there is eternal salvation. Eventually his own will hear his voice, and something within them will awaken. And when it does—they will begin to sing again.
He has put a new song in my mouth
Praise to our God;
Many will see it and fear,
And will trust in the Lord.~ Psalm 40:3
