Oh sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things! His right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him. (Psalm 98:1)
My son is left-handed. To him, the left hand or arm is the symbol of power and might. Generally, however, the right hand or being positioned at someone’s right side denotes power, authority, and outsized influence. What this Psalm shows us is that God saves us personally. It takes God to save us. Not good works. Not good theology. Not even good people. It is God’s saving right hand. It is also interesting to note that His Son now sits at His right hand, the Son who is also our Savior.
Lord, we can never stop singing about your salvation.
