Beloved, amid the many burdens, cares, challenges, uncertainties, pressures, opportunities, responsibilities, weaknesses, disappointments, temptations, sins, and difficulties we often face, let us strive to remember and believe this: Our God reigns, and there is always cause to joyfully sing to Him a new song! I’m praying this week that your souls will be strengthened in the steadfast love and salvation of our triune God, particularly as revealed in Psalm 98:
1 A Psalm. Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. 2 The Lord has made known his salvation; he has revealed his righteousness in the sight of the nations. 3 He has remembered his steadfast love and faithfulness to the house of Israel. All the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God. 4 Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth into joyous song and sing praises! 5 Sing praises to the Lord with the lyre, with the lyre and the sound of melody! 6 With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord! 7 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! 8 Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together 9 before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.
Growing, trusting, and singing with you,
