Psalms, chapter 95

God is the rock of my salvation.We can trust in our God.

Our Bible reading for today is from Psalms 95, the verse of reference in  is: 

 “Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation. Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. (Psalms 95:1,2 NIV).


The rock shelter us praise his great name and 

Historical Commentary. – The Psalm 95 is one of the theocratic psalms, which exalts God as Rock, King, Creator, Maker, Pastor of those who follow Him. This psalm teaches two ways of true worship: 
1) close to God and worship Him with joy, joy and singing, 
2) Humble ourselves, hear his voice and obey. 
So worship includes singing and a message, music and preaching of the word.

The rock of salvation. – The figures of this psalm are beautiful and expressive. Many centuries before Christ came, Moses had already demonstrated God as the rock of salvation for Israel. The psalmist sang praises calling him “my Rock and my Redeemer”, “the rock of my strength,” “rock that is higher than I.” , “my rock and my fortress”, “rock of my heart”, “the rock of my trust.” In the songs of David his grace is presented as “still waters” in “green pastures”, to which the divine shepherd leads his flock. And also says, “You give them drink from your river of delights. For with thee is the fountain of life. For Jeremiah, Christ is the “fountain of living water”, to Zechariah, a ‘fountain opened … to [wash the] sin and filth “AFC 26.

Reasons to praise His name. – The Psalm argues seven reasons to worship God with all devotion: 
1) Is the place safe for our salvation, 
2) is a great God, 
3) It is a great King, 
4) is the creator of all that exists, 
5) Lord and Master of all, 
6) He is our God, 
7) We are His people. 

The psalmist recognizes that God is not only a “Great God”, but that He is “OUR GOD”. 


Our Father who art in heaven. Hallowed be thy name. We ask that your kingdom come, we want to live in contemplation of your power forever. In the name of Jesus, amen.
