Everyone needs recognition for his accomplishments, but few people make the need known quite as clearly as the little boy who said to his father: “Let’s play darts. I’ll throw and you say ‘Wonderful!” (Bits & Pieces, December 9, 1993, p. 24) … More
This is a psalm of praise which anticipates the coming of the Lord to rule His people. Jesus fulfilled this anticipation when He came the first time to save His people from their sins (vv. 2-3) and He will fulfill it again when he comes to judge the world (vv. 8-9). The coming of the Lord on this earth is portrayed as an event of great joy. Therefore, three groups are called upon to rejoice: God’s people (vv. 1-3), the whole earth (vv. 4-6), and all of nature (vv. 7-9). Psalm 96 is a twin psalm to this one as it opens in an identical fashion. The writer exhorts all the earth to “sing to the Lord a new song” and praise Him who reigns. He has done marvelous things in saving Israel by His power and will judge the would in righteousness. God’s great salvation is possible because of His love and faithfulness.
I praise the Lord for His promise to save me and to return again.
