I will sing to the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praise to my God while I have my being. Psalm 104:33 (KJV)
The creation story in Genesis indicates that the Lord was delighted and pleased with His creation. In Psalm 104, we see that King David wrote a song to celebrate the LORD for having created all things in the past and celebrating how the LORD is involved in the creation as it is today.
The psalmist resolved in his mind that he would continually acknowledge and sing praise to the Lord amidst the countless enemies, setbacks, and threats he faced. He had determined in his heart that he would be thankful for what God has done and is going to do in his life.
Through this psalm, King David is encouraging us to remain joyful by singing and thanking God no matter what happens around us because we have the Lord with us and on our side. We are not to become bitter over our circumstances, but rather to rejoice in the Lord all day, every day.
Praise is like medicine; it brings healing and deliverance to our souls and bodies. In the Bible, we read that praising God is a weapon to break down the walls that are holding us back and win battles over our enemies. When we praise, we know that the Lord dwells in our praises. It is the will of God for us to rejoice no matter what comes our way. Singing praise is a heavenly characteristic, and if we are to be overcomers, we too yeild to the Holy Spirit to develop this quality.
