When we go to God in times of trouble and need, we should also offer thanksgiving, jubilance and praise. Praise Him for the beauty He created and for the wonderful blessings He showers on us. Give thanks for everything possible—His love, mercy, goodness, understanding, His Son, our Saviour, His grace.
Be happy, joyful that we have a relationship with Him, that He is faithful and keeps His promises, that He has wonderful things in store for us. David was always praising God. “Be exalted, O Lord, in Your strength we will sing and praise Your might.” – Psalm 21:13.
We should lift our voices in praise—in song. Praise the Lord, our God who delivered His people from Egypt, David from his enemies and who loved the world so much that He gave His beloved Son so all who believe in Him could have everlasting life. Praise the Lord for He is just. He contends with those who contend with us. He disciplines us when we do wrong just as we discipline our children. Praise the Lord for He is creator of Heaven and earth who performs great wonders. Praise the Lord for His loving kindness, His wisdom, His patience and His desire to do His very best in our lives.
We have so much to praise God for. We should praise Him everyday. “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord.” (Psalm 150:6)
