The Psalmist said it so well in Psalms 34:1. He wrote, "I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth." He, David, went on to say, "My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad."
It is a joy to live a life that blesses the Lord. David had experienced a lot in his life. He was disliked by his brothers at one time (I Samuel 17:28). He served in Saul's army and was a mighty man of battle defeating the Philistine of Gath- Golaith (I Samuel 33-50). Even when Saul came against him, David still behaved himself wisely (I Samuel 18:5,8,9)
The one thing that David did not do that made him a man after God's own heart is he never did serve another God. Yes, he sinned and when confronted by Nathan he repented. But David did not make any graven images to serve as a god in his life. He did not serve the god of his wife, Sauls daughter. David served the god of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob until his death.
So when he wrote I will bless the Lord at all times he meant it.
Life happens to everyone. There will be tests and trials. For the Bible teaches us that man that is born of a woman is of a few days, and full of trouble (Job 14:1). But thank God for the trouble shooter, Jesus Christ!!
Jesus is the head of the church one must be part of to make heaven your eternal resting place. To get into His church, you must be born again of the water and the Spirit (John 3:3,5). Those that attempt to serve the Lord for blessings and things are not obeying the word of God. The enemy of the soul, satan and flesh, can give a person things that appear to be a blessing.
When salvation comes, the nature of a person changes. The hold the old man had on the person is broken. The person becomes a new creature in Jesus Christ (II Corinthians 5:17).
May you seek the Lord until you become converted and not for fishes and loaves. Blessing do not save. Jesus saves.
"I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together. I sought the Lord and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears."- Psalms 34:1-4
