“Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
For He has done marvelous things!”
Psalm 98 is one of the loudest, most joyful, happy psalms in the Bible. In verses 1-3, the psalmist says that we’re to “Sing to the Lord a new song.” This is the singing that means to take a stroll. The idea here is to have a song in our hearts while we go about our daily business, and not the same old song. God doesn’t want you singing my song or his song or her song, but a fresh, new song from your heart! Each day we ought to be discovering or recognizing something new and fresh about God. We could spend every day from now till death praising God for all He is and does and find something new every day!
The psalmist gives us some reasons we ought to have a new song in our hearts each day. Verse 1 says He has done marvelous things, great and mighty things, difficult and hard things, wonderful and miraculous things! What are some of the great things the Lord has done in the pages of your life?
There are so many great things the Lord has done for me, the greatest of which was sending his Son to suffer and die on the cross that I might have eternal life. Each day I wake up with a new wonder at the marvelous things he has given me, the amazing world he has created around me, and the many wonderful people he blesses my life with.
