Psalm 33 gives us a look at who God is. We see that God is good, creative, counselor, watchful, deliverer, and our hope. Today we will look at God’s goodness.
Praise God for His goodness (V 1-5)
Rejoice in the Lord, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. 2 Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. 3 Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. 4 For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. 5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.
We are told to do three things. Rejoice, praise, and sing. These are forms of worship to the Lord. Rejoice has the connotation to be glad or joyful. There are various ways to praise the Lord. Here it says with a harp. Then we told to sing a new song to the Lord. Why are we to do this? Because “…the word of the Lord is right;”, “…all his works are done in truth.”, “He loveth righteousness and judgment:”, and “…the earth is full of the goodness of the Lord.”
So how do you worship God? I certainly rejoice that brought to belief in Jesus Christ. I praise Him in songs from hymnals, choruses, and Scripture songs. I enjoy thinking about who God is and what He has done for me.
Think about how you worship the Lord.
