Oh sing to the LORD a new song,
for he has done marvelous things!
His right hand and his holy arm
have worked salvation for him.
Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth;
Break forth into joyous song and sing praises!
(Psalm 98:1&4 ESV)
God wants us to be in special relationship with Him. We do this by studying His Word, and by praying, worshipping and serving Him in everything we do.
As we study God’s Word, we learn more and more about Him as He reveals His heart to us. In our prayer life, we have the opportunity to praise God and dialog with Him as we petition our requests and hear Him speak and reveal Himself to us.
Today’s verses focus on singing to the LORD in worship. As today’s verses teach, all of us are called to make a joyful noise to the LORD, to break forth into joyous song and praises. It matters not how well we can sing, whether we can hold a tune or not. It is what’s in our hearts that counts, and singing enables a closer connection to the Heart of God.
This past week we were blessed to be able to record two songs that we look forward to sharing with you in the near future. These songs were written specifically to bring praise and worship to God. It is our prayer that these songs will draw you closer to the Heart of God in worship and help you to break forth into joyous song and praise of our awesome God.
The Psalmists in telling everyone to praise God are doing what all men do when they speak of what they care about.
