In these troubling times it is sometimes a challenge to think about praising God and worshiping. But we can choose to take a step back, take a breath and meditate for just a minute. We need to do it regularly. That’s why God instituted the Sabbath day of rest on a weekly basis. After that first Easter, we Christians moved our day of rest and worship to Sunday, the first day of the week.
A prayer-partner friend of ours told Betty how she was moved in this time by Psalm 34. I pulled out my Bible and took a look. Oh, yeah. I’ve read this before. But during normal or “good times” it was just a reminder of what I’m already feeling about God and my life. Now it hits me with new insight as to how I must intentionally remember who God is, who I am, and how He ministers to me, in me, and through me…all around me. (Hey, where did we hear that before?)
So, take a break, step back and take a breath, and take a look at Psalm 34 (read HERE).
“I will bless the Lord at all times.”
I sought the Lord and he answered me and delivered me from my fears.
Taste and see that the Lord is good.
Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them.
Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers them.
When your tank is empty, fill ‘er up.
