Each time I read Psalm 98, I am reminded of the ease a natural place of praise can be. “Let the sea roar and all that fills it; let the rivers clap their hands and let the hills sing with joy together.” It boosts me into a posture of worship. The encouragement to sing a brand new song to the Lord. It does not have to be fancy, and authenticity is key. For me, it can start like this:
“Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. You are good. You are good. You are very, very, good. And I praise you, I praise you, I pa-pa-pa-pa praise you.”
And then it begins to flow. From that state of easy praise, a new song is made. It’s authentic. It’s real. It’s pure. I praise the Lord for my car, my salvation, His patience ...and on and on. What song are you singing today? What is the praise on your heart?
