Scripture for the week of July 5, 2020
The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things! Psalm 118:14-15 (NLT)
Are you one of those people that can’t carry a tune and prefer to sing in the shower where no one else can hear? Sometimes we just need to make a joyful noise to the Lord anyway because He is worthy to be praised! This Psalm was most likely written by King David, who was known as a mighty warrior of Israel accomplishing many great exploits in the name of the the Lord. He humbly declares in these verses that it is the Lord’s strength that has given him the victory and therefore the reason to worship and sing His praise. He proclaims that the godly sing songs of joy and victory when they gather together to celebrate because the strength of the Lord helps us accomplish glorious things. May we also sing the songs of rejoicing and triumph because of the many mighty things the Lord has done and continues to do in our lives as we daily trust in Him. Praise the Lord, God Almighty, Who is Worth to be praised!
