Devotional by Ada Santos
I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to your name, O Most High. Psalm 9:1-2 (NKJV)
This Psalm, written by King David, is a sincere expression of his heart, praising the Lord for Who He is and what He had done.
It also expresses his desire to share with people the wondrous works that God had done in his life.
As David is communicating with the Lord in this prayer, he is sharing with his Father the joy he has because of the love and power God had shown him.
Just as King David did, I believe that it would be very good that we also make use of prayer to express to God our recognition and devotion for who He is: Holy, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Loving, Creator of the Universe, Merciful, the One who Forgives; He who knows everything–even the deepest thoughts of our hearts; He who has saved us from eternal condemnation; and innumerable other things that escape my mind at this moment.
Also, we could mention to Him our thankfulness for the blessings that He has given, because even when He responds to our prayers with a “No”, He does it out of love and care for us because He alone knows the future.
Let’s take a special time to simply worship and thank our Lord, and while we’re at it, why not also sing praises to Him?
And let’s give testimony to all the good that He has done in our lives!
