Day 8

You Have Made Your Victory Known

from the Psalms of Gratitude reading plan

Psalm 98:1-9

BY She Reads Truth

Text: Psalm 98:1-9

In this 2-week reading plan, we are assuming a posture of thanksgiving before the Lord by meditating on ten Psalms of Gratitude. Rather than provide a written response to each Psalm, we have offered a simple yet meaningful activity designed to help us recall God’s mercies to us and through time. So grab a journal, and let’s create our own songs of thanksgiving to God.

Psalm 98
Praise the King
A psalm.

Sing a new song to the Lord,
for He has performed wonders;
His right hand and holy arm
have won Him victory.
The Lord has made His victory known;
He has revealed His righteousness
in the sight of the nations.
He has remembered His love
and faithfulness to the house of Israel;
all the ends of the earth
have seen our God’s victory.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth;
be jubilant, shout for joy, and sing.
Sing to the Lord with the lyre,
with the lyre and melodious song.
With trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn
shout triumphantly
in the presence of the Lord, our King.

Let the sea and all that fills it,
the world and those who live in it, resound.
Let the rivers clap their hands;
let the mountains shout together for joy
before the Lord,
for He is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world righteously
and the peoples fairly.

Dig Deeper:

Our God is forevermore victorious! In Psalm 98, the Israelites declared that “all the ends of the earth have seen our God’s victory”—and they joined loudly in the chorus of praise. Let’s do the same as we work through the text below.

1. Look at verses 1-3. Why were the Israelites singing a song to the Lord?

2. Now look at verses 7-9. Why should we sing a song to the Lord?

3. Why did the Israelites celebrate their victory with so much noise?

4. How can we celebrate the Lord’s victory?
