Psalm 9:1-2
I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart;
I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
I will be glad and rejoice in You;
I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
You know, there just isn’t enough praise going on in the lives of believers today. I hear a lot of requests, complaints and concerns, but praise is surprisingly lacking. I think it’s a matter of perspective. When we are focused on what we want, we request. When we are focused on the injustices in our lives, we complain. When we are focused on our worries, we offer our concerns. But, when we are focused on God’s power, we praise! I believe that we ought to have an open and honest relationship with God, so that means there is room for making requests and offering up concerns, but not to the exclusion of praise. Praise should be the first thing on our lips, not the last and certainly not missing altogether. One of the healthiest things for believers to do is to continually keep our eyes on Jesus. When we do, our problems shrink as our praises rise!

Are you currently going through problems? Sing praises. Are you entering into a spell of prosperity? Sing praises. Are you in a stretch of time that is simply pain free? Sing praises. No matter what season we go through as believers, Jesus always gives us cause to sing and proclaim praises to Him!
