Make a Joyful Noise

Make a Joyful Noise

By Pastor Bill Lynch

Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!
For the Lord is a great God,
and a great King above all gods. (
Psalm 95: 1-3)

The Bible is full of scriptures like this that speak to the praise of God, especially the book of Psalms. King David wrote many of these Psalms with much passion, you can just feel the sincerity and gratitude he must have felt while writing these. “Let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!” Amen!

What do you have to praise God for? Maybe it’s the birth of a new baby (or grandchild), or how God provided for you financially when you needed it, or maybe (and most importantly) it’s because God chose to love you. The reasons for praising God are literally endless.

Take a challenge today and write or pray your own Psalm to God. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just something from your heart that you want to communicate with God. He loves hearing our praise! And after all, he deserves it.
