The Psalmist encourages us to rejoice, to break forth in song, to sing his praises, why?
One reason is for his salvation. Jonah 2:9, Salvation is of the Lord. Those who experience salvation are delivered from danger. The danger that all face is condemnation at the final judgement and all the horror that follows that judgement. Only God, through Jesus Christ, can bring this salvation which is in accord with his mercy, which is a great mercy. Joel 2:13 reminds us that God is gracious and merciful.
God is always faithful. He is dependable. He will always keep his word. Romans 10:13 tells us whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved. He will always keep his promise. There are great reasons for rejoicing and for taking time to give him praise.
