Joyful Focus

S- Ps 98:1 - "Oh sing to the Lord a new song! For He has done marvelous things:"

O - This is a psalm that focuses on God. The God of creation has done a marvelous thing. Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the judge recognizes that the penalty for our sin has been paid. God has forever demonstrated his love to us and He will be forever faithful. What God has done for us is enough! Let's join with the rivers and hills and the seas to rejoice in his goodness.

A - When I focus on God's love and the completed work of Christ, my response is joy.

P - Lord, we don't want to focus on our shortcomings or the shortcomings of others which brings discouragement and anger. Help us to focus on what you have done for us and focus on your sufficiency in our lives. We ask that you do marvelous things in our lives by your mighty power. Amen!
