Sing a New Song to the Lord! - Psalm 96:1, Psalm 98:1, & Psalm 33:3

Sing a New Song to the Lord! - Psalm 96:1, Psalm 98:1, & Psalm 33:3

“Sing a new song to the LORD! Let the whole earth sing to the LORD!” Psalm 96:1 (NLT).

Time and time again, the Psalms encourage us to look for new reasons, new ways, and new words to praise our amazing God: “Sing a new song to the LORD, for he has done wonderful deeds. His right hand has won a mighty victory; his holy arm has shown his saving power!” Psalm 98:1 (NLT).

King David was clearly a skilled musician and songwriter; his joy for the Lord continually burst forth in the form of songs of praise: “Sing a new song of praise to him; play skillfully on the harp, and sing with joy” Psalm 33:3 (NLT). And he encourages us to sing a new song to God as well. But sometimes we get caught up in the routine and repetition of praise to the point that it becomes nothing more than rote words robotically repeat instead of a deep, personal cry of praise from the depths of our soul.

I must confess, at times I find myself simply repeating words that do nothing to bring me closer to my Creator. But David, who was a man after God’s own heart (Acts 13:22), continually looked for new ways to praise his God, thus cultivating a deeply intimate relationship that carried him though a myriad of difficult periods in his storied life. Instead of mindlessly repeating words of a song that he had no part in creating, David took the praise of His amazing God into his own hands—he made it personal.

Like David, each of us should look for our own place of praise; and we should look for our own unique way of praising God. Maybe it’s in writing and singing new songs of praise; maybe it’s through written words, spoken words, or acts of service. Whatever it is, we all have something to offer. But until our praise is a spontaneous cry from the very depths of our heart, it will never be anything more than a litany of empty words habitually pushed out in meaningless ritual.

Today, I challenge you to stop worshiping out of a sense of obligation, to start looking for the multitude of blessings in your life, and to continually praise and worship the living God with a new song.
