I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.

Psalm 69:30

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

When was the last time you sang praises to God outside a church building or devotional service with other believers? Why not open up the Psalms and find several verses that reflect your personal praise and thanks to God? Then, give them a tune — your own tune! God doesn’t care if your spiritual gift is music or singing; he’s just listening for your heart to be joyful as you share your praise and thanksgiving with him. Let’s join in saying and doing what our verse for today commands: “I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.”

My Prayer…

O gracious Father, giver of every good and perfect gift, forgive me for relegating my thanksgiving and praise to special days and special places. I praise you for creating your human children with the capacity to celebrate goodness, to rejoice in your creation, and to have the capacity for praise and thanksgiving. Thank you for making our world so full of reasons to offer thanks to you, our Abba Father and Creator. As you continually fill me with your Spirit, may my heart overflow with songs of praise and words of thanksgiving. To your glory, in Jesus’ holy name, I pray and praise you. Amen.
