Saturday, April 30: Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise

 

Saturday in the PsalmsOn Saturdays we'll worship God through a selection from the Psalms.

Read Psalm 96

Sing to the Lord a new song;

sing to the Lord, all the earth.

Sing to the Lord, praise his name;

proclaim his salvation day after day.

Declare his glory among the nations,

his marvelous deeds among all peoples.

For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;

he is to be feared above all gods.

For all the gods of the nations are idols,

but the Lord made the heavens.

Splendor and majesty are before him;

strength and glory are in his sanctuary.

Ascribe to the Lord, all you families of nations,

ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.

Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;

bring an offering and come into his courts.

Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness;

tremble before him, all the earth.

Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns."

The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved;

he will judge the peoples with equity.

Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad;

let the sea resound, and all that is in it.

Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them;

let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.

Let all creation rejoice before the Lord, for he comes,

he comes to judge the earth.

He will judge the world in righteousness

and the peoples in his faithfulness.

 

Reflect

This is one of our great psalms of pure worship of God. Each of the four stanzas (groups of verses) seems to be about a particular type or aspect of praise and worship. Can you identify those, in your own words? Do any of them come more naturally to you?

Respond

Ask God to lead you to worship him in every way possible. Ask him to use his word to guide both how you live your life and how you interact with him.
