Continually

a

Psalm 34:1; I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise will continually be in my mouth.

The dictionary defines the word continually as; very often; at regular or frequent intervals; habitually. Without cessation or intermission; unceasingly; always. Can you even imagine that? Some of haven’t praised God in a long time. Oh, when something amazing happens, we might get all excited and say, Hallelujah, but this is a far cry from continually. I believe that this isn’t only what we speak, it’s what we think, or the perpetual motion of our thoughts.

I awoke this morning with a song on my heart. It goes like this; “If God has been so good to you, you ought to praise Him. If God has been so good to you, you ought to praise Him. If God has been so good to you, you ought to stand up on your feet, and praise and magnify the Lord for He’s the one who set you free. Praise Him! Praise Him!” It made my mind immediately go into overdrive. I began to think about all God has done in my life and I got excited. I began to thank Him for goodness and mercy that follow me all the days of my life. A big smile broke out on my face and let my heart know that He’s always been faithful.

Continually. Regardless of what we see going on in the world. Regardless of what we’re experiencing in the natural. Regardless of the highs or lows, the ups or downs, the good or bad, we have made up our mind to praise Him. Oh, I don’t know about you, but I know what happens when you praise the Lord in the middle of your darkest night. God comes on the scene and flips the light switch, allowing you to see things as He does, from the point of victory. We are children of the Most High God, that’s gotta make you excited.

Oh Father! I worship you with everything that’s in me. I’m so excited for the plans you have for me. Plans to prosper me and give me good success. You have tipped the scales for me. Every blessing belongs to me! You’re not content to simply give me enough but you overwhelm me with more than enough, every good and perfect gift comes from you. When I chose to make you Lord of my life, you promised to accompany me through every trial, every temptation, every impossible situation. You have turned it all around for me! You turned my mourning into dancing, my crying into joyous praise. You’ve placed a song in my heart that never stops. I don’t wait for Sunday to worship you, I worship you everyday of my life. All praise and honor and glory are yours forever. Amen
