Everyone should shout joyfully to the Lord

Psalms Bible Background

Old Testament: Psa 98.4–6

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 96–98 on August 13, In the year of our Lord Christ 2020

By Don Ruhl

All the earth has reasons for rejoicing before the Lord, and so the psalmist encouraged all the earth to praise the Lord:

Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises.
Sing to the LORD with the harp,
With the harp and the sound of a psalm,
With trumpets and the sound of a horn;
Shout joyfully before the LORD, the King.

– Psalm 98.4–6

All the earth has life, breath, and all things, because we live and move and have our being in Yahweh God. Is that not reason enough to sing to him? He wants to hear his creation sing. Let us then do as he wants.

Questions:

  • How often do you sing to the Lord?
  • Have you counted your blessings from him?
