A Verse for Meditation

I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God all my life long.                                              Psalm 146:2

  •  Every day the news brings us more reminders of disaster and tragedy in the world. How are we supposed to praise God in the midst of such misery?
  • We know that David’s life was no picnic, and it is unlikely that any other psalm writer had a life of never-ending ease. How did this writer motivate all that praise?
  • When I am in the midst of deep pain myself, does God even expect me to praise him?
  • The book of Revelation describes myriads and myriads of angels and people praising God for eternity. Is that what this writer means? Is that something I should actually look forward to? Is that all heaven is?
