Today's Verse: Psalm 69:30-32

Thursday, December 14, 2023

I will praise God's name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving. This will please the Lord more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs. The poor will see and be glad — you who seek God, may your hearts live!
— Psalm 69:30-32

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our praise should not only please God; it should also produce joy and gladness in the streets among the poor! Why? Because praise invites us to not only applaud God for what he does but to also join him in partnership as he does it. God's generosity, which evokes our praise, should stir our generosity, which in turn blesses others and leads them to praise God, too!

My Prayer...

Holy God, Almighty and majestic King, you are worthy of all honor and praise. You have done wonderful and mighty things. You have poured out your blessings upon me. You have kept your promises and provided me with the way of salvation. Please empower and strengthen me as I commit myself to bless, serve, and encourage others and point them to your glory and generosity by my joyous praise. In Jesus' name. Amen.
