Then I will praise God’s name with singing, and I will honor him with thanksgiving. Psalms 69:30 NLT
David wrote this Psalm during a period of crisis in his life. He spoke in great detail about the problem he faced. I’m quite sure there were those who would listen to the details of his complaints. Yet, David chose to take his issues to God in prayer. It’s easy to identify with David because his life went from one crisis to another. But there was one constant during his life; he took his issues to God in prayer. In Psalm l21:1-2 he said, “I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth.”
He knew that God would hear his prayer and deliver him. He had a testimony that God provides help to those in distress. He knew that his God was faithful. In verse 29 he said, “I am suffering and in pain. Rescue me, O God, by your saving power.” He had confidence in God and was waiting for Him to act. Then David would praise and honor God by giving thanks. Giving thanks should happen every day and in every season of your lives. It’s great to give thanks on Thanksgiving Thursday but much better to give thanks and praise every day of your life.
