Saturday Psalm (9)

I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.  I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.  When mine enemies are turned back, they shall fall and perish at thy presence.  for thou hast maintained my right and my cause; thou satest in the throne judging right.

Psalm 9:1-4

Many of the Psalms deal with the theme of praising the Lord for His goodness to us.  In the first verse in this Psalm, the Psalmist says that he is going to praise the Lord with his whole heart.  Just thinking about that will give us plenty to consider today.

The Psalmist praised the Lord, which is what we should all be doing.  But he made it a point to say that he was praising the Lord with his whole heart.  How often are we guilty of praising the Lord halfheartedly?  How often are we guilty of praising the Lord sometimes and ignoring Him other times?

We need to praise the Lord with our whole hearts.  We need to praise the Lord all the time, every day and in every way.  We need to watch ourselves that we do not fail to praise the Lord for His goodness to us.  He has been good to us, hasn’t He?  If so, then we ought to be praising Him for it and letting others know!
