“I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth”. Psalm 34:1 (KJV)
Being thankful is not something that we should do sparingly or grudgingly. If you truly understand what God has done for you in Christ, then you will burst forth in spontaneous praise all the time. The Psalmist in our text today made the decision to bless the Lord at all times. He did not bless the Lord only when he saw a miracle manifest. No, the Lord was praised irrespective of the current situation. The Psalmist said His praise shall continually (not weekly, once in a while, or yearly) be in his mouth. Beloved, we also need to learn this lesson from the Psalmist. He has tapped into an important secret.
In Psalm 103, David tapped into the benefits of the new creature and explained why we should give God unlimited praise. Take time to read Psalm 103:1-4 and you will discover that he is thanking God for the things that have been completed at the cross. Jesus nailed our sins to the cross so that sin would no longer have dominion over us. By His stripes we were healed over two thousand years ago, so sickness and disease, no matter their names, cannot harm us. He paid the full price when He went on the cross.
So when the Psalmist tells us to be thankful, he bases his reasoning on the things that He has already completed. And the truth is that no matter how good you are, you cannot save yourself. In fact, no matter how much you love your spouse or child, you cannot do what Jesus did. He did something for you, and there is nothing you can add to the work. When Jesus said, “It is finished” He meant that the work is finished. The full price has been paid, so all you can do is live in an environment of constant praise.
God has already done everything through the finished work at Calvary. That is why we must be thankful. He has finished everything. Nothing has been left undone. Your past, present, and future have been taken care of, so rejoice. The enemy has nothing with which to stop you.
