Sing a New Song (Psalm 98)
Show Notes

Singing is a natural response when our emotions are aroused.  Psalm 98 shows us what singing a new song includes and reminds us we have plenty to sing about.   

If you are getting started in a relationship with God, trying to have a quiet time or seeking guidance at this point in your life, you're in the right place.

Spend your first fifteen minutes of the day listening to God and responding in a personal way.  This podcast will show you how and teach you in an easy to follow process.

In fifteen minutes (or less) you will listen to God's word for you, reflect on it and learn to pray to God as well as carry that word with you through the rest of your day.  What a perfect way to get started!

We are listening to Psalm 98 from Book 4 of the Psalms.  It celebrates God's salvation and justice by singing a new song.  It follows in the steps of Psalm 95 and 96 which are also songs of praise or urge singing a new song to Yahweh.  All the Psalms from 90-100 have some intricate links between them and you would be blessed from in-depth study on this topic.  The exuberant thanksgiving and praise by the rivers, the mountains and the seas helps us see that praise is not limited to humans alone.  The concluding note of God coming and his future judgment and restoration of justice strikes the note of hopeful expectation for believers.  

Go ahead and get started listening and follow/subscribe to this podcast to hear more from God's word.  

As we progress in season three get a copy of the book God Help Me Grow: Learning to Pray through the Psalms on Amazon (or the ebook) so you can pray all of the first 30 psalms in the book of Psalms.

Download the helpsheet that details and demonstrates the four step process we use on First Fifteen using Psalm 1.
