‘Sing To The Lord A New Song’ (Psalm 33: 4 – 5, ESV) by Carley Evans


“Shout for joy in the Lord!” (Psalm 33: 1) Our joy is in the Lord. His Word “is upright, and all His work is done in faithfulness.” How can we not be joyful, knowing that our God works in faithfulness and righteousness? God “loves justice.” And, “the earth is full of [His] steadfast love.”

“Therefore the Lord wants to be gracious to you, and therefore He exalts Himself to show mercy to you. For the Lord is a God of justice; blessed are [we] who wait for Him.” (Isaiah 30: 18) God’s mercy to us emerges directly from His sense of justice! He promises, “You shall weep no more.” God promises that “at the sound of your cry — as soon as He hears it, He answers you.” (Isaiah 30: 19)

Therefore, rejoice! “Sing to [God] a new song!” (Psalm 33: 3) Leave your sad dirge behind. Remember, as David does: “You [O Lord] are a hiding place for me; You preserve me from trouble; You surround me with shouts of deliverance.” (Psalm 32: 7)

We are blessed for our “transgression is forgiven, [our] sin is covered.” God “counts no iniquity” against us. (Psalm 32: 1)

Therefore, rejoice! “Sing to [God] a new song!”
