Psalms 34: 1 I will praise the lord at all times. I will constantly speak his praises. The chapter caption of Psalm 34 tells us when and the occasion David wrote this particular chapter. This Psalm was written at a time when David' s life was in danger.
David disguised himself as a mad person infront of Abimelech just to escape murder. Even at a time when his life was under attack, he wrote this particular Psalm (Psalm 34). David said I will bless the Lord at all times, at a time when his life was under attack, he said he would still praise God.
David said " AT ALL TIMES" , meaning whether in good times, bad times, wealth, poverty. This was why the Bible classified him as a man after God' s heart. 1Samuel 13: 14 But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.
This means our praise should not be seasonal and circumstantial. So the bad times should not affect our praise, abundance should neither affect our praise. Even when his life was under threat, he still praised the Lord. The threat could not alter his praise. No circumstance should change our praise.
It should our service to God, a divine incense in the altar of our God. David in this Psalm taught us our praise should not be circumstantial. Let praise rise from within you as a sweet smelling fragrance, devoid of sorrows but with a grateful heart. Praise the Lord always.
PRAYER: Father I thank you for your Word, I pray Oh Lord that Just like David, you will grant me the Grace and help me praise your name at all times in Jesus Mighty name. Amen.
DECLARATION: I will bless the Lord at all times
