When I sing a line of a song, and then you get “infected” by it, that is what you call “LSS”. Example, if you hear the words…

darling I’ll be loving you til seventy

You may be able to sing until you get to the end of the chorus of the song, Thinking out loud, by Ed Sheeran.

At one point, I was with a friend as she does her errands. I started singing out songs from the 90s and she would be able to finish every song I sang. It’s as if she could recall a lot of memories just by remembering the songs!

When Jesus Christ uttered…

My God, my God, why have you forsaken me? (Matthew 27:46)

He was pointing towards Psalm 22. For by saying a line, in this case, the first part of a psalm, He is pointing towards an entire psalm that is being fulfilled as he hang on the cross. Consider this…

– People will mock him (v6)
– Slow death (v14)
– Dehyrated (v15)
– Gentiles surrounded him during his final hours (v16)
– Crucified in full public view (v17)

To think, crucifixion did not exist at the time of the writing of this Psalm. Yet Jesus Christ was able to fulfill each and every prophecy regarding the death of the Messiah.

When Jesus was hanging on the cross, He endured the pain and the suffering and was still thinking of what would honor the Father to the point of death.

When we suffer, we may recall Bible verses to help us go through the painful period in our lives.

It’s not just an LSS moment. It’s clinging on to the promises of God. Psalm 22 did not end in defeat. See for yourselves. It is a psalm of victory.It is a psalm of declaration.
