We have it backwards

Psalm 9: 1-2

I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;

    I will tell of all your wonderful deeds.

I will be glad and exult in you;

    I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

When things are going badly we call on God for help. When we are afraid or ill or in danger we Immediately pray for help. When we don’t talk to God is when everything is going well. We just don’t think about it. We are too happy and satisfied.

Psalm 34 4

Somehow I think we have it backwards. When things are going great we need to thank God. We need to jump up and down for joy and sing aloud songs of praise.

I can just imagine the expressions on the faces of those around us. This is not something we see often. Maybe if we did that we would bring more people to our God. At least they would know that we counted on God for good things. Then they would understand that we belong to a God who is alive and well and present in our lives. Someone else may want that.

  1. Yes, I know fromr experience, that I had “it backwards, most of the time.
    When I began my days, in the mornings, Thanking Him, and ” Praising Him, for the things that He had, and WAS doing in my life, I began to “feel”, and “see”, more of His character and His “Love” for me, and His “desire”, for US, and our praises.πŸ™ŒπŸ—£πŸ˜‚πŸ—£πŸŽΆπŸ€—πŸ˜‡ It is THEN, and THERE, that He can, and will, ” inhabit our praises…our very LIVES…
    IT has made all the difference, between living and, LIVING IN, AND WITH, our Heavenly Father…
