Meditations in the Psalms

August 14th

Psalm 98:4-9

The instruction to sing and play instruments before the Lord centers in the fact that He is coming to judge the earth. Everything that is wrong now will be made right, and all matters will be handled by the Lord with perfect justice for all. That is worth shouting about! Injustice is everywhere, and there are few in this world who have not experienced it. In Isaiah 11:4 we read of the coming reign of the Messiah Himself and it says: “But with righteousness shall He judge the poor, and reprove with equity for the meek of the earth.”

  1. The rejoicing of God’s people with music – verses 4-6
  2. The reaction of all creation – verses 7-8
  3. The righteousness that shall characterize the rule of our Lord over all the earth – verse 9

The Lord is coming to set up His kingdom on earth. It is an everlasting kingdom that shall never be destroyed. The good news is that all believers will rule and reign with Him!

Verse for Meditation

Verse 4 – “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.”
