Scripture: Psalm (NIV) 109:30 With my mouth I will greatly extol the Lord; in the great throng of worshipers I will praise him.
Observation: The praise in David’s heart was like a building pressure. It had to find release. The path of least resistance was through his mouth. He would join with others gathered to worship. He would lift his voice with theirs. He was not going to be one of the quiet worshippers. He would “greatly extol” the Lord!
I often hear people whose heart is so full of their favorite baseball team that they will take any excuse to talk about them. They meditate on their team all day long. Of course what is in their heart has to find some expression. They will take any opportunity to speak words of admiration and appreciation for their team.
Application: As I meditate on the Lord, my heart becomes full and the overflow spills out my mouth.
Prayer: Lord, I want people to easily recognize that you have first place in my life! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
