Psalm 9

Today’s Passage: Psalm 9

1 I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart;
    I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.
2 I will be glad and exult in you;
    I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.

The opening lyrics of this Psalm are filled with the common phrase: “I will…” This phrase brings with it notes of the choice David the Psalmist is making in the midst of his enemies.

Look at the structure David encourages:

  • Give thanks to the Lord
  • Remember the deeds of the Lord
  • Be glad in the Lord
  • Sing praise to the Lord

These four actions are representative of what spiritual health and growth looks like. But aren’t these easy to do when things are easy or going the way you desire them to go? The true test of these things are revealed in the moments when life does not go your way. 

Are these four heart postures deepening, strengthening, and maturing in your life?
