Psalm 34:1

“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” (NASB)

STRONGS HEBREW/GREEK ORIGINS

“I will bless (barak: salute, praised, kneel down, congratulate) the LORD at all times (`eth: season, when, always, occurrences, occasions); His praise (tehillah: adoration, thanksgiving, renown, fame) shall continually (tamiyd: daily, always, ever, perpetual, continual, evermore) be in my mouth.”

SUMMARY

I will bless and praise the LORD on all occasions and in all seasons; His fame and renown shall daily, now and forever more, be in my mouth.

MEDITATION

What an absolutely incredible statement! When things don’t go my way, I will praise the LORD! When my car breaks down, I will bless His name! When life is seemingly unfair or riddled with hardships, His awesome renown will be found on my lips! May this be our heart’s desire - may this be our goal. It is time that the world sees a Believer whose hope and love for the LORD is not dependent on their circumstances, but soley rooted and established in declaring His greatness at all times!

Amen!
I constantly have to remind myself to focus solely on Him even when everything around me is falling apart!
