Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from Psalm 98:1-9. The Psalmist encourages us to sing to the LORD because of His marvelous works. He is victorious. The LORD showed forth His righteousness to the heathen and has made His salvation known to the ends of the earth. He remembers His promises of mercy and truth toward Israel.
The Psalmist reminds us to make a joyful noise to the LORD by singing, praising, and worshiping Him through singing songs of praise and worship. He also encourages us to play beautiful music to the LORD with all the musical instruments.
The Psalmist declares that the whole world and all those who dwell on the earth will praise God. The sea roars with the beautiful music of the waves. The floods and the mountains declare that He is God. He is coming back to judge the world with His righteousness. He is a just God and will judge in spirit and truth. We are to praise His holy name.
Daily Bible Reading:
1 [[A Psalm.]] O sing unto the LORD a new song; for he hath done marvellous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory.
2 The LORD hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen.
3 He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4 Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
5 Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm.
6 With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King.
7 Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
8 Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together
9 Before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity.
Things to think about:
- What are some ways that we haven’t already mentioned that we can praise or honor the LORD?
- Is praise to God considered a service to Him or a way of honoring Him?
- Is praise something we do inside of ourselves or is it something that is visible to others? Could it be both?
- What were God’s promises to Israel?How does the earth make a joyful noise to the LORD?
- How will God judge the earth?
Prayer of the Day:
Dear Heavenly Father,
We thank You that the Psalmist reminds us in Psalm 98 that You are worthy to be praised. Help us to find ways to make a joyful noise to You. Help us to acknowledge Your marvelous works. Help us to celebrate You and Your creation along with the birds, trees, waves, and other creatures of the earth. Lead, guide, and direct our lives. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.

King David went through a lot of tough times in his lifetime, but he loved God and trusted God to protect him from his enemies.
The book of Psalms was written by various people. About half of it was attributed to King David, whether they were written by David or for David is questioned by some biblical scholars.
