My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof. I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only. O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come. Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee! Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth. Thou shalt increase my greatness, and comfort me on every side. I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel. My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed. My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt. Psalm 71:15- 24. Psalm 71 is all about Praising and Worshiping the Lord all of our days, PERIOD. It doesn't matter what our situation or circumstances are, we are to Praise the Lord. In our Prosperity, and in our Weakness, we are to Praise the Lord, all the day long. Whether on a Spiritual Mountain Top High, or in 6 months of Solitary Confinement, we are to still, Praise the Lord. All our Praise is Due Him because of Who He Is, because He IS The Lord God Almighty, ALL THE TIME. With your eyes focused on Christ, your situation and circumstances fade out into blurry nothingness. Yes, Christ cares about every hair on our head, but those hairs, or lack thereof, DOESN'T DETERMINE IF WE SHOULD PRAISE HIM OR NOT. Our circumstances are "fluid", always changing. Christ never changes and is Worthy of Praise, ALL THE TIME. Praise Him, and, Be Blessed.
