A short Psalm packed with reasons to be thankful to God! Also packed with more forensic evidence of God’s attributes and identity!
1 Shout with joy to the Lord, all the earth!
#200 – God is Communicable (and receives our worship)
#201 – God’s Reign Extends far beyond Israel!

3 Acknowledge that the Lord is God! He made us, and we are His. We are His people, the sheep of His pasture.
#204 – God is Proprietor of All! God Owns it All!
Fredrick Brotherton Meyer (1847-1929), the Baptist pastor and English evangelist noted,
“The sense of God’s proprietorship is the true basis of our consecration. We must realize His rights over us before we can freely give Him His due. Those rights are manifold in their sweet reasonableness; but amongst them all, this of creation is one of the chief. God has a right to us because He has made us.”
#205 – God is Our Creator!
#206 – God is a Great Shepherd!
4 Enter His gates with thanksgiving; go into His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him and praise His name.
#207 – God is Approachable!

5 For the Lord is good. His unfailing love continues forever, and His faithfulness continues to each generation.
#209 – God is Not Selfish or Capricious!
#210 – God is Always Good!
#211 – God’s Love is Unshakable!
#212 – God’s Mercy & Faithfulness Have No End
