Praise No Matter What

In Psalm 34:1 TLB, David says, “I will praise the Lord no matter what happens. I will constantly speak of his glories and grace.”

Most people probably couldn’t make such a statement. Women experiencing trauma from betrayal—still able to give God praise? Is it even possible? Yes! Like Job, David did not waiver in His faith, but spoke of God’s glory grace, and praise.

He suffered through deaths of children, from the never-ending pursuit of Saul, (who wanted him dead) as well as the revenge of Philistines, who were certainly enraged after Goliath (their strongest and fiercest warrior) had been killed.

Not to mention all the countries he was at war with.

David wasn’t perfect and may not have always had peaceful circumstances, but regardless— he remained firm in faith. Unshaken. Fortified. He continued to rejoice in God, his defender and deliverer.

Lessons learned from life experiences only deepened David’s faith. In retrospect, He claimed God’s truths for himself and shared them through the Psalms—encouraging others. Let’s do the same!

“The Lord is close to those whose hearts are breaking; He rescues those who are humbly sorry for their sins. The good man does not escape all troubles—he has them too. But the Lord helps him in each and every one.” Psalm 34:18-19 TLB
