3/12/2020 Thursday, Psalm 95:1-5
Come, let us sing to the Lord!
Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.
2 Let us come to him with thanksgiving.
Let us sing psalms of praise to him.
3 For the Lord is a great God,
a great King above all gods.
4 He holds in his hands the depths of the earth
and the mightiest mountains.
5 The sea belongs to him, for he made it.
His hands formed the dry land, too.
Our reading this morning reminds us of two essential things. First, that God is good; he is even great. Even if there were other gods, they would pale in comparison. The second is that God is the real source of power. “He holds in his hands the depths of the earth and mightiest of mountains.” This reminder is helpful when we are overwhelmed by stress and the problems that we face. God is powerful enough to meet all of our needs. God's goodness brings us comfort as we trust in him. I have often wondered what we are to do as we wait on God to fight these battles. The Psalmist gives us direction: let us sing and joyfully shout for what God has done and will continue to do in the future!
If you were to sing and shout of God's goodness towards you today, what words would you use?
