PRAISE HIM ALWAYS

“I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth” Psalm 34:1 NKJV 

If you are someone that likes surprises or throwing surprise parties, you know the satisfaction of throwing a good surprise and getting a proper reaction from the recipient of the surprise.

Imagine that you threw a surprise and the recipient showed no emotion or recognition of your efforts. Or maybe you got a special Christmas gift for a friend and the response was an off-handed ‘Oh, you shouldn’t have’. That would be terrible, right? 

To think that many people give that same reaction to all of God’s goodness and blessings. They whine and complain or show indifference when they should be singing, jumping, bowing and dancing in praise and adoration. Anyway they can think to make outward show of their heart’s posture.

When you think of the goodness of God, there is a proper response. Bless God! Praise him! 

Just look at David’s response:

“Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!” Psalm 103:1 NKJV 

And Apostle Paul had a similar expression in Ephesians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,” (NKJV)

Not only should you constantly think of the blessings of God upon your life, but you should also consistently respond appropriately – Praise God always!

Should there ever be a time when you are not praising God? No! Our anchor verse paints a picture of continuous, consistent praise and thanksgiving to God. Every act of God is deserving of praise. The very being of God is deserving of praise (Psalm 136:1-26)

Again we see this instruction: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 

I Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)

Let your life be a testimony of the goodness of God and let your response always be gratitude and appreciation. This is the right response.

    One thing is clear in the book of Job: Satan is a key player in the world’s suffering. He desired to harm Job and was the one who carried it out, not God (Job 1:12,2:1-7). He was envious of God’s goodness in Job’s life, and he destroyed it all in one day (Job 1:6-11)!
