“I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
Even when distress brings us to our knees, we can choose to allow our discomfort to cause us to bless and praise the Lord.
If our trials cause us to seek to know Him more, should we not be thankful for them?
David promised to bless the Lord at all times…constantly…while also vocalizing his praise continually.
“Let my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour all the day.”
No matter what or who tried to stand in his way, he trusted the Lord.
When we realize that anything that touches our lives has been filtered by Him, we can choose to be thankful in the middle of our storm.
He allows every thing, even our trials, to bring praise unto Him.
1 Peter 1:7-8
“That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Whom having not seen, ye love; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:”
When a thankful heart becomes our priority, it will change us.
It strengthens our faith.
It helps us show mercy to others.
It changes our perspective.
It allows us to praise the Lord regardless of our circumstances.
The blessing of thanksgiving in the life of a believer is the opportunity to bless and praise Him.
Ezekiel 33-34 | Psalm 111-112
