1 I will extol the LORD at all times;
his praise will always be on my lips.
2 My soul will boast in the LORD;
let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
3 Glorify the LORD with me;
let us exalt his name together.
To put it into context, King David wrote this when he pretended to be insane before Abimelech who drove him away. The lesson I took from this is that even in the face of adversary we should always praise the Lord. No matter what the situation if David could praise God on the brink of death, it shouldn’t be that difficult to praise God when we have a lot of homework or had a bad day at work. This verse has helped me through many a time this past year on a late Tuesday or early Wednesday doing homework for Rivendell Study Center (the classical education center that I’ve been taking most of my classes from). Merry Christmas and have a happy new year to all! I hope you neither have a lot of homework nor bad days at work so you can praise God out of happiness.
