“It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High, to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night.” Psalm 92:1-2 (NIV)
The psalmist writes that it is good to praise the LORD. What does this mean? When we give praise to God, we show respect and thankfulness for all He has done for us. At each church service, our pastor asks if anyone has praise for the Lord. One time in my life, I felt God had turned his face from me. In one Sunday morning worship, I started writing on my worship folder the names of those who gave praise. This act helped me be thankful for what He was doing in the lives of others. I still practice this habit all these years later.
We see in these verses that we are to declare His love in our morning prayers. We can tell others of God’s watch care over His children. We can ask God to watch over those who go through difficult times, thereby showering His love on each of them.
In the evenings, we are to affirm God’s faithfulness as we saw it throughout the day. After reflecting on this passage, I vow always to try to remember God’s faithfulness. He is faithful, even when I am not.
