Psalm 30:12: To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent, O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever (KJV).
This is another one of David’s Psalms. This psalm was sung at the dedication of his house. He was so thankful to God for protecting him all those years and exalting him. He was also thankful to God because God had turned his mourning into dancing.
“To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee and not be silent,” means using either his soul or his tongue to glorify God. He was a man of praise. He loved to praise God continually for all His wonderful works in his life. When David thought that all was over, God started establishing him. He was, of course, a man after God’s own heart. He loved to worship God and wrote many psalms in honor of the God of Israel. When he sinned against God, he begged Him not to take away the Holy Spirit from him. He was willing to lose everything but His presence. Such was the heart of David. He says, “O Lord my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.” He never walked away from God. He was true to his calling and stayed faithful to God until his last breath.
There is a lot of things that we can learn from the life of David. One among them is to not be silent but to use our tongues to glorify God. Let us be careful as to how well we use our tongues.
