Sing to the Lord a new song!

Psalm 96:1-6

Oh sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth!
Sing to the lord, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.
Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvelous works among all the peoples!

For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be feared above all gods.
For all the gods of the peoples are worthless idols,
but the Lord made the heavens.
Splendor and majesty are before him;
strength and beauty are in his sanctuary

Every now and then I am convicted about my view on God and how mighty He is. This verse was rolling around in my head over and over again and rightfully so. When we sing praises to the Lord we engage in battle with the enemy, we take a stand and say that I am not afraid of you because my God who loves me is greater than any other being for force that there is. When we sing praises to our Father we show Him how much we love Him and are blessed to be called His children.

It is easy to become complacent and to get wrapped up in the things of our days, but we must never quit sharing our faith with those around us. I heard it said once that if there is no God then none of us have a purpose. It took me a second to catch that, but I have come to realized just how true that is. As I go about my life there are many times that I forget about God throughout the day and try to do things in my own power. God has shown me how much I need Him during those times. Not in a way that is bad, but simply by allowing me to recognize the emptiness that exists when I do things on my own power.

We are creature built to worship. With all of the religions of the world this cannot be refuted. When we look back in the Bible we see so many examples of the people worshiping different idols, but there has only been one who is mighty enough to save. We serve a great and mighty God who even in all of His greatness wants to lavish us with His love in ways that only we can recognize. So “sing to the Lord a new song” and let your heart and actions show how blessed you are.

Father you are so amazing! We breathe in your grace and exhale your praise. We are nothing without you Father. We are sinners saved only by your grace. How could we ever show you how grateful we are that you have chosen us? Lord we bless your name on high and throughout the world. Father guide us today and help us to see how better life is when we give you all of the control and all of the glory. Open our eyes to see the harvest in front of us that is ripe for the picking. You are so amazing Father. We love you, we praise you, we adore your name. Amen.
