Scripture: Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts. For the word of the LORD is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness. He loves righteousness and justice; the earth is full of the steadfast love of the LORD. Psalm 33:3-5 ESV
Observation: In contrast to humankind bent over by sin, the word of Yahweh is upright. Through his Word (Christ) all good works were completed in faithfulness to his covenants with righteousness and justice. And he is a loving God, not capricious but steadfast in his love for us, not limited by time or space but filling the whole earth with his love.
Takeaway: For these reasons and much more, let’s stand upright and wholeheartedly sing a new song to him and tell others of his wonders. It is medicine for our souls.
Prayer: Father God, lift our heads upright when we are slumped over by sin or sadness, that we might behold your faithfulness, righteousness, justice, and love that fills the whole earth, that we might sing a new song of the redeemed. Amen.
