Joyfully Singing about God's Enduring Truth

This Psalm contains some important truths that can help us stand firm in our everchanging world!

As a new Christian, I learned Psalm 100 in the KJV by singing it. It’s a wonderful Psalm, so rich with meaning: 

1𝅘𝅥𝅮Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands. 

Our salvation should bring us such joy that we can't help but shout and sing! 

2𝅘𝅥𝅮 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

What gladness our God brings, even in times of difficulty. This makes me think of my grandma who suffered great losses in her life. Yet her love for the Lord was present in everything she did, and you'd often hear her sweetly humming. 

3𝅘𝅥𝅮 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. 

There are such important truths in this verse, truths our world tries to deny: He made us, male and female, in His image. We are His design, not our own.

4𝅘𝅥𝅮 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. 

Thanksgiving takes us through His gates, and praise takes us right into God’s courts. I need to remember this. I often focus on prayer requests and neglect thanksgiving and praise. 

5𝅘𝅥𝅮 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations. 

God’s truths in Scripture don't change with culture. We can trust them permanently.

  1. Thank you for this today. It brings back wonderful memories for me. Back in the '50's my third grade teacher, Mrs. Isabel Cude required us to memorize the 100th Psalm. I think of her every time that I quote it. It is indeed a meaningful Psalm.

  2. Thank you Gail. I love this psalm.
