“Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. Sing to the LORD, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day. Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the LORD made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
Worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth. Say among the nations, “The LORD reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.
Let all creation rejoice before the LORD, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples in his faithfulness.” – Psalm 96:1-3, 5-6, 9-10,13 Niv
Prayer for Today
Father shoe, You are God and what you decide stands. The Israelites kept going astray even while you showed them your miracles. In your oath you send them to hell because they did not want to repent. I had a vivid dream last night where I struggled, but God you are the one who works in our hearts to keep us close to You. Father being falsely accused is not nice, I dont know what it is like being falsely accused and being condemned to death because of it. It is like I said yesterday to the bus driver, there is situations in the world and then there is God. The the guy on God’s side will win in the end. Help me to cling to you and not see the waves of the sea going up and down. I am in your life jacket that will take me to the secluded island where God’s and His people live. Amen
