“Every day I will praise You…” Psalm 145:2a
Is every day equal? Certainly one feels more inclined toward praising God one day more than another. But the Psalmist made a resolve that he would praise God every single day. That meant on good days and on bad days. (Nobody is exempt from the latter, by the way). That meant on days he felt like it as well as on days that it was the last thing he wanted to do.
Do you realize how revolutionary this kind of resolve can be to your life? It’s a commitment to say, “I’m having a tough day and I don’t feel like praising You right now, but I’m going to anyway because You are worthy.” The Amplified Version adds, “everyday [with its new reasons] I will bless You.” We have reason to praise Him every single day, whether we choose to realize it or not. Will you make the resolve to praise Him even when you don’t feel like it?
