One of the challenges of a life of faith is to differentiate between your personal effort and what God does on your behalf. This sense of individual capability sometimes excludes us from the favour of God. From Scripture, we learn that God favours people - we have encounter of favour ourselves, and we also witness favour in the lives of many other people. As believers, we don't invoke God's favour as often as we should.

The God of Heaven; the One Who began the beginning, the One Who Exodus 3:14 calls the "I AM THAT I AM"; the One Who spoke light into existence (Genesis 1:3), the One Who has the verdict of life, the One Who has all powers says "Remember ye not the old things..." There might have been failures in your past, things that you found difficult to do, or there might have been pain and sorrows; however, God is saying that you should not remember these things. Why? Because, He said "I will do a New Thing." God is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19, Titus 1:2). If God says He will do a new thing, there are three things that you must consider. They are: Preparation, Picturization and Procedure/Process.

We have had many studies on Psalm 91 in various dimensions, but in recent times, we have looked at the reward of the wicked and have established that a reward is something that is given in return for a service rendered or an act done. For example, the Bible says the wages of sin is death. Surely, there is a reward for wicked acts. The question is: “are there also wages for righteous deeds?

From our previous lessons, we learnt that God assures the righteous that evil may occur all around them, but it will not touch them. Indeed, the wicked will fall all around you, but the evil will not touch you. All you shall see is the wicked receiving their reward (Proverbs 17:13, Proverbs 11:8). God is angry with the wicked every day (Psalm 7:11); many sorrows shall be to the wicked (Psalm 32:10). The wicked are candidates for God’s anger and many sorrows, and they can never receive God’s favour unless they repent.

It is time to sing A New Song Of Victory because of the finished work of Jesus Christ, the One Who is solely worthy and eminently qualified to take the scroll and open its seals (Revelation 5:9-10). Jesus Christ redeemed us by His Blood, and He shed His blood seven times:

Now, you may ask: How do we explain these exceptions to the rule? The Bible says in Genesis 18:25 that God is the Judge of the whole world and He is righteous. Indeed, there’s a song of Moses in Deuteronomy 32:3-4 which says God is faithful without injustice. However, because the spiritual controls the physical, a spiritual act will trigger a physical reward.

The word promise comes from a Latin word called 'promittere' which means to send beforehand or to go forward. 'Pro' means forward, and 'mittere' means to send. Literally, a promise is something that is spoken in your now but speaks to your next. Once you have a promise, you are no longer confined to the limitations of where you are. A promise is a vow, an indication that a successful prospect or future can happen. A promise is also what gives you hope and makes you believe that something better is coming.

The phrase "a New Song” is a statement of transition. It implies that there must have been an old song; and something happened that caused the old song to no longer be necessary, but for something new to be sung. Whenever you hear the concept of a New Song, it is making reference to something having a greater capacity to bring something forward (Matthew 9:17).

In our studies of Psalm 91:7, we learnt that even though calamities may be happening all around us, God has set boundaries and limits to prevent such calamities from coming near us. In continuation, verse 8 says “Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.”
