On this occasion we will talk about Psalm 69, written by King David. Let us realize something, each psalm invites us in one way or another to exalt the name of God, it is something natural to each song. The point is that the Bible highlights the power of God, everything in the Bible is about Him, of giving worship and praise to Him.
Today we have thousands of Christian songs and many of them have blessed us, because with their lyrics they exalt the power and greatness of the Lord, and that is the main point of praise: “Give glory to God”. The psalmists had this very clear, and our prayer should be that our composers today adhere to the Bible and give glory to God with those praises.
The Bible says:
30 I will praise the name of God with a song, and will magnify him with thanksgiving.
31 This also shall please the Lord better than an ox or bullock that hath horns and hoofs.
32 The humble shall see this, and be glad: and your heart shall live that seek God.
33 For the Lord heareth the poor, and despiseth not his prisoners.
34 Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein.
No matter in the condition that we are, God is deserving of all glory and all honor, and we must give him praises, spiritual songs, because for that we have been created.
If you read the entire Psalm you will realize that this is possibly one of the saddest psalms there is, however, that sadness was not enough to deter David from worshiping and praising God. In the first verse the psalmist asks God to save him because the waters have entered his soul.
Brothers, only God can save us and in difficult times only He makes that praise remain on our lips.
