Song Receiver's Tip of the Week - August 29, 2011

Songs of Deliverance

Many of the songs I receive are very specific in nature. Call it a ‘word of knowledge’ or a ‘prophetic song’…call it what you will, but hearing a song of deliverance from the heart of God for another soul is a level of freedom for both the receiver and the one on the receiving end that is truly beyond human understanding to fully grasp. God tells us in His Word that He will surround us with songs of deliverance…not just for ourselves, but for others we are in relationship with. I have received many such songs – not only for myself – but for countless others. The song It’s Gonna Be Alright is such a song. Born out of a need in my own family as well as for a need in a another family, this song transcended our family’s situation and became a song of deliverance for thousands and thousands of others. Spend time this week focusing on what Jesus focused on – meeting the needs of others. Be ready to receive a song of deliverance…and then share it with those who need to hear it!

You are my hiding place;

You preserve me from trouble;

You surround me with songs of deliverance.

Psalm 32:7 NASB

I heard your testimony on the radio the other day. This was not too long after reading about you in the OBU alumni magazine. God kept placing you on my heart to search online for your website. Upon finding you online I have received such a blessing reading your Song Receiver's tips. I attended OBU in the 70s and began as a music major because God had given me a gift for songwriting. After graduation, I was in a very abusive marriage for 13 years before being delivered. During that time, I received many songs from the Lord. After my deliverance I continued to receive songs and performed at church on occasion. Then there was a very long dry spell (7 years)while completing a doctoral program. I would love to carry on as a song receiver. I hope it is not too late. Reading your messages gives me hope that God may once again give me songs to sing.
