Believers, like the rest of the world, have faced the chaos of 2020 and the continuing chaos of 2021. But famed gospel recording artist Martha Munizzi says we must go beyond the natural to see what God is doing in the supernatural—and Best Days, the title of her first album release in more than a decade, reflects that truth.
"There are a lot of reasons why we call it Best Days, but it's really just based on that prophetic Scripture in Isaiah, 'Behold, I am doing a new thing. Now it springs forth, can't you see it?'" the Grammy, Dove and Stellar Award-winning singer says on a recent interview on the Strang Report podcast with her husband, Danny Munizzi, and Charisma CEO Stephen E. Strang.
With the pandemic, Munizzi says, "We really got tested in a lot of ways. And those Scriptures have been tested for me: Can we still see the new thing God's doing? Can we still feel expectation for something great that God's doing in what seems to be the worst year collectively of our lives? Can we still have faith and trust and see it in a prophetic way that God is still doing something great?
"These are the best days; it's prophetic," she says. "And sometimes we want to wait and think, Well, tomorrow will be better. What if today were the day that we needed to be full of expectation, running to the promise, expecting God to do something great?
"And that's really what the title track is, a song that my daughters and I wrote called, 'These Are the Best Days,'" Munizzi says. "And these are the best days; He's doing a new thing. He's bringing water to the dry land. And that's really what it is. It's just bringing hope in a prophetic sound, and in a message that says, 'Don't wait for tomorrow; serve God today.'"
Munizzi and her husband haven't been resting for the past 10 years—quite the contrary. Not only has she released two singles during that time, but the Munizzis also planted Epic Life Church in Winter Park, Florida, where they both serve as pastors, in 2015.
"It just goes to show you just have to wait on God's timing, no matter how long it is," Munizzi says. "If it's 10, 15, 20 years, just wait on God's timing, because He redeems time. He puts things together in ways we cannot even imagine.
"I was stressing that I waited that long to put music out because you don't normally do that," she says. "But I thought, You know what, Lord? I have to be about the new assignment that You've given me and put all my energy behind that. And the music is just going to come when it comes."
And come it did, she says. She began the new album in mid-October and did a live recording of eight brand-new songs the first week of November.
"But that's what I'm saying," Munizzi adds. "God's doing something new; it's springing forth. And so this record is all about that."
