This is one of the psalms attributed to David. He is thanking God for rescuing him and promising to bless God at all times. He asks us to join him in his praises. He says his soul shall boast in the Lord. St. Paul tells us that we, too, should only boast in the Lord because it is he who always saves us. So, today, make a list. Make a list of everything that you are thankful for. Make a list of every success you have had and every failure you have survived. Make a list of every person who has helped you grow as a person and as a Christian. Now, look at it. Each of the items, events or persons on these lists are blessings from God. Either now, or before the day is over, bless and thank God for each of them. Ask God, also, to bless each of the people you have listed that you might be a blessing for them. If some of them are now with God, they would still like to hear you say thank you. God is so good to us all the time, and as one of my favorite people once answered, and all the time God is good.
And we pray:
LORD Heavenly Father, we thank You for all for all the times You have been there when we were unaware of Your Presence. As we grow in You, have us know and understand that Your Essence surrounds us like the air we breathe. You are The most intricate peace that fills me without ceasing to bless. When I take a breath, You are there – Hallelujah!!! Thank You for the people You have sent to help us grow and we ask You to bless them immensely in Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
