“I will praise the Lord at all times;
His praise will always be on my lips.
I will boast in the Lord;
the humble will hear and be glad.
Proclaim Yahweh’s greatness with me;
let us exalt His name together.
I sought the Lord, and He answered me
and delivered me from all my fears.”
Who are we if we don’t praise the Lord in everything? Are we not like the hypocrites who say one thing and do another? The world views Christians as a bunch of people who do whatever they want, but judge nonchristians for doing whatever they want because they simply don’t say they are Christian. I would say that ethically those who do not claim to be something they aren’t are better examples of “right” living than that of the hypocritical Christian.
If we praise the Lord at all times then there is no room for hypocrisy. If we humble ourselves to the point of realizing that we accomplish nothing of value without the help of the Lord then we have nothing else to do but to praise His Greatness. If we seek the Lord and his will then we have nothing but freedom. We are no longer slaves to fear because the Lord has created a path to freedom and given us the keys to it now.
Let us not be hypocritical, let us praise the Lord always so that there is never any moment to forget the God who loves us unconditionally.
