Psalm 98

A Psalm.

1 Oh, sing to the LORD a new song! For He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.

2 The LORD has made known His salvation; His righteousness He has revealed in the sight of the nations.

3 He has remembered His mercy and His faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.

4 Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth; break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises.

5 Sing to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of a psalm,

6 With trumpets and the sound of a horn; shout joyfully before the LORD, the King.

7 Let the sea roar, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell in it;

8 Let the rivers clap their hands; let the hills be joyful together before the LORD,

9 For He is coming to judge the earth. With righteousness He shall judge the world, and the peoples with equity.


Verse 1 ends with something of note, “His right hand and His holy arm have gained Him the victory.”  God is THE Almighty One.  He is always victorious.  This is why it becomes so important to spend time with Him in personal prayer.  Prayer, that is not just you talking, but a true multi-directional conversation.  This is how you can know that your ways are His ways.  You see, He always wins, so when your ways are His ways, you will also be victorious in whatever you do.  This does not mean there won’t be struggle and conflict, but when the fight is over you will be victorious, because He fought for you.
