The Light of Christ Journey

Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

Image result for Psalm 34:1

Ps.34:I will praise the Lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises.
I will boast only in the Lord; let all who are helpless take heart.
Come, let us tell of the Lord’s greatness; let us exalt his name together.[1]

When David was in trouble, he looked to the Lord. He not only looked to the Lord but praised Him ahead of the answer. When I praise the Lord, it keeps my focus on the Lord and not on my circumstances. What can you give thanks to the Lord for today? How would that change the way you look at yourself and the Lord? How would that change how you look at the pandemic situation?

When I praise the Lord, it affects my brain. David is praising the Lord with all his heart. When I praise the Lord, I become more positive, thankful, and joyful. It changes my perspective. This is also Scriptural.

1 Thess. 5:18 – Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.[2]

Romans 8:28 – And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them. [3]

If David could praise God in the middle of a crisis, so should we. To hear more of David’s story, listen here:
