Bless the Lord on All Occasions

To read the Bible in a year, read Psalms 34 and 35.
King Saul had driven David out of the Kingdom of Israel and he headed for the Philistines, but they questioned what he was doing there. Fearing for his life, David pretended to be insane and the king of the Philistines drove David away. Therefore, David wrote the 34th Psalm, praising the Lord for what He had done (Psalm 34:0). David praised the Lord always, whereas some people only praise God when in prosperity and others only praise Him when in adversity, but David found a reason to praise the Lord on all occasions. Therefore, he said,
I will bless the LORD at all times;
His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make its boast in the LORD;
The humble shall hear of it and be glad.
(Psalm 34:1, 2)
However, David was not content to praise the Lord alone, but wanted others to join him. He wrote further,
Oh, magnify the LORD with me,
And let us exalt His name together.
(Psalm 34:3)
Therefore, regardless of what the day is like, find a reason to praise God today.
