Psalms 30:12 that I might sing praises to you and not be silent.
O lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!
The song writer ends this Psalm with the statement: sing praises to God, and not be silent, I will give thanks forever.
If I could think of nothing better than to do with my life for the rest of my days on earth…
Praise God without ending!
Give thanks to God forever!
Just when you think, that we have discovered all there is to know about God… we see some new facet of His greatness.
Do you ever just bring up something awesome that happened in the past, and it’s so good, you just can’t help telling the story over again?
That’s what praising our God is like!
If our focus is on learning to see new perspectives about God, then our eyes will continually be drawn to the beauty of life.
if our focus is on teaching our hearts to praise God in every circumstance, then you will find victory in all circumstances.
If you take the time to go back and read the whole chapter. the psalmist wasn’t exactly in the best of situations.
In the midst of all the bad situations, the main encouragement was to keep on praising God.
Summary of Situations before God intervened
1. Enemies were trying to triumph over him
2. Failing health
3. In the grave of the pit of death
4. Weeping through the night
5. Prideful and thought he didn’t need God
If that short list was an example of how your past week, months years used to be, then take hope. You are not alone.
There is a solution! Praise God, Give Thanks unceasingly.
I AM in need of mercy
I AM in need of God’s Help
I AM Thankful
I AM in Awe of God
And then when we pass into heaven. We will have an eternity to do it all over again!
