I Will Sing and Give Praise

By Watchman | January 11, 2010

“Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You: And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, until these calamities have passed by.

I will cry out to God Most High, to God Who performs all things for me. He shall send from heaven and save me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up.  God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.”  —

Psalm 57:1-3


     Lord, it’s 18 degrees outside and my furnace hasn’t worked in nearly two weeks, yet will I trust in You!

     Lord, the mortgage isn’t paid, and there is no way to pay it, yet will I praise Your Name and lift You up, for You are God Most High!

     Lord, my car is unsafe to drive and yet must be driven; yet will my heart swell with gratitude and thanks for the great gifts You have given me and the unfailing love and mercy You have shown me!

     Lord, the enemy has overwhelmed me and stolen from me what You have designated for my use: send now from heaven, and save me from reproach!

     Lord, the enemy whispers in my ear, “I have won; God no longer hears your cry”, yet will I sing and give You praise (Psa. 57:7), for You are the God of my salvation and the Lord of my life! 

     Lord, I lift up praises to You in the snow and the cold, and I lift them up in the sun and the warmth. 

     Lord, I lift up worship to You in the dark and in the depths of the pit, as I lift up worship to You in the light and in the full presence of Your glory!

     Hear my cry, O Lord, and accept my adoration and my worship; for You are God and Lord of all, and in You alone do I put my trust!
