Daily Read - Judges 6:1-40; Luke 22:54-23:12; Psalm 95:1-96:13; Proverbs 14:5-6
Psalm 96 is written as a powerful exhortation to make a declaration
. These are not just words on a piece of paper, but they are divinely penned and orchestrated by the Holy Spirit to be spoken aloud into the atmosphere as praise to our God.
Every word in the Bible is placed by divine inspiration and carries tremendous weight in the Spirit. If you do what this psalm instructs, the atmosphere around you will change. When it says to sing - then sing to the Lord a new song. When it tells you to proclaim - then proclaim the good news of His salvation today. When it directs you to declare - then declare His glory among the nations.
The Word of God is alive and when activated in your life, it has no choice but to bring forth fruit!
1 Oh, sing to the Lord a new song!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2 Sing to the Lord, bless His name;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
3 Declare His glory among the nations,
His wonders among all peoples.
4 For the Lord is great and greatly to be praised;
He is to be feared above all gods.
5 For all the gods of the peoples are idols,
But the Lord made the heavens.
6 Honor and majesty are before Him;
Strength and beauty are in His sanctuary.
7 Give to the Lord, O families of the peoples,
Give to the Lord glory and strength.
8 Give to the Lord the glory due His name;
Bring an offering, and come into His courts.
9 Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Tremble before Him, all the earth.
10 Say among the nations, "The Lord reigns;
The world also is firmly established,
It shall not be moved; He shall judge the peoples righteously."
11 Let the heavens rejoice, and let the earth be glad; Let the sea roar, and all its fullness;
12 Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it.
Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord.
13 For He is coming, for He is coming to judge the earth.
He shall judge the world with righteousness, And the peoples with His truth.
