Psalm 34:1, NKJV
I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
Praise is not just words; it's an attitude. Our life should be a praise to God. We should be grateful, have a smile, be good to people, and be passionate about our dreams. When you've learned the secret to bless the Lord at all times, you can be in a pit but nobody around you knows it. You're not sour. You don't have a chip on your shoulder.
Anyone can give God praise when things are going your way. But the test is, will you praise Him in the wilderness? Will you worship Him in spite of what's not working, praise Him in spite of who did you wrong? The way you bless the Lord at all times is by your praise, by always finding something to be grateful for, by not dwelling on wrongs but thanking God for what's right. It's by not focusing on what you lost but thanking God for what you have left, and by not complaining about what's behind you but by being grateful for what's in front of you.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are worthy of my worship and praise. Thank You that whether I'm on the mountaintop or in the valley, my whole life can be a praise to You. Help me to learn the secret of blessing You at all times, and may Your praise be continually in my mouth. In Jesus' Name, Amen
