Pleasing with Praise

| | Comments (1)

Today's reading: Psalm 69:29-36

After starting the weekend in Psalm 69, I decided to stay here one more day because there's quite a bit we can learn from David in this song of affliction. As we come to the end of the psalm, David turns to praise even though he's experiencing extreme affliction and difficulties. I was especially drawn to verses 30-31, where we're shown that, more than anything, God desires our hearts and the praise that flows from our heart's love of Him.

"I will praise the name of God with a song; I will magnify him with thanksgiving. This will please the LORD more than an ox or a bull with horns and hoofs."

What impact does praising God when you're going through difficult times have on your thinking, attitude and actions? Have you offered God heartfelt praise this weekend? Tami

The Lord God is MORE pleased when we praise Him than our (sacrifice)ox or bull.

Praising the Lord during difficult times or extreme afflictions takes our minds and thoughts from our circumstances,and draws our attention on the Lord Whom we are talking/praying to about our needs. David trusted the Lord and knew the Lord would hear the needy and provide them with homeland .
Have I offered God a heartfelt praise this weekend?
This study has caused me to start to praise Him, I plan to give the Lord a heartfelt praise before the weekend is gone, this will please the Lord!
