Choosing Praise in Advance

 

Consider how many times David said in the Psalms, “I will praise.”

He chose ahead of time that he would praise God. No matter what!

Psalm 34:1 I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

Psalm 54:6 I will freely sacrifice unto thee: I will praise thy name, O LORD; for it is good.

Psalm 56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. … 10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

Psalm 57:7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. … 9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

Psalm 61:8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

Psalm 63:3 Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. … 5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

Psalm 104:33 I will sing unto the LORD as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.

Praise is an action best performed when the decision has been made in advance to praise God no matter what.

Have you decided that you are going to praise God?  If you did, how would that impact your music ministry?
