"I will bless the Lord at all times, and His praise shall continually be in my mouth" - Psalm 34:1
David was at one of the darkest moments in his life where he was left wandering in the wilderness to live an uncommon life he was not accustomed to living. This change of lifestyle was not one by choice, but one where he was forced into when he had to flee his own home from an army of danger.
Being in this kind of circumstance, most people would fall into despondency - but not David. Instead his soul was running over with gladness as he uttered these words – “I will bless the Lord at all times, and His praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
He decided that his praise for God would not only be on occasions when things were going good, but that even in circumstances where he was forced into an uncomfortable condition, he would yet praise the Lord while he had the opportunity.
If you are in an uncomfortable circumstance, although you may have suffered a loss; hold on to your praise. Be as faithful in your praises unto the LORD God of Heaven, even when the sun is not shining on your side. Your press to praise the LORD despite your uncomfortable conditions, may inspire someone else to do the same.
