Psalm 34:1 I will bless Jehovah at all times; His praise will continually be in my mouth. 42:11 Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; for I will yet praise Him, The salvation of my countenance and my God. 1 Cor. 10:10 Neither murmur, just as some of them murmured and perished by the destroyer.
God's children should open their mouths to praise Him, not only when they are free from problems, hurts, wounds, or difficulties, but even more when there are problems and wounds. When one lifts up his head in these situations and says, "Lord, I praise You," his eyes may be filled with tears, but his mouth will be filled with praise. His heart may be in pain, but his spirit will still praise. His spirit will soar as high as his praise. He can ascend with his praises. Those who murmur are foolish. The more they murmur, the more they are buried under their murmurings. The more they complain, the more they sink into their complaints. The more they allow their problems to overtake them, the more exhausted they become. Many people...strive and struggle to get out of their situations. Even though their circumstances and wounds try to bury them, they try to get out by prayers. But there are also times when prayer does not work. Nothing seems to be able to deliver them until they praise. When you put yourself in such an overcoming position, you immediately transcend everything, and no problem will be able to bury you. Sometimes you may feel that something is trying to run you over. But as soon as you praise, you will come out of your depression.
