Scripture Reading(s)

Psalm 98:1-5

98:1 O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things. His right hand and his holy arm have gotten him victory.

98:2 The LORD has made known his victory; he has revealed his vindication in the sight of the nations.

98:3 He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the victory of our God.

98:4 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises.

98:5 Sing praises to the LORD with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody.

What is your response when God gives you victory over a trying time? Praising God is something that we should be exercising and living in our hearts each and everyday. Learning to exercise a heart that is filled with joy and gratitude allows for us to also live out an attitude of being content.

The nation of Israel was constantly being challenged with learning to remember all that God has done for them and being greatful for all that He’s done. He delivered them countless times from their enemies and forgave them each time they fell away from sin.

In the same way God has also delivered us from eternal punishment and death by dying on the cross and forgiving us of our sin. Let us always remember just how far Christ went to pay the ultimate act of deliverance and sacrifice. As the Pslamist praised “O sing to the LORD a new song, for he has done marvelous things” so we too should praise Him daily.
