"10 Those who know your name trust in you,
for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you."
How to give Praise
- Thanks for what you have received-" v1 I will give thanks to you, LORD, with all my heart;
I will tell of all your wonderful deeds."
- Above all, recognizing Who your Giver is- " 7 The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment. 8 He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity.
9 The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. " David never failed to Praise God and recognize who God is. If we see a person helping out a stranger for no personal gain, we know that person must be kind. If we see a person giving off of his own lack, we know he must be generous. Actions define the character of a person. David learned that full well. He therefore, praised God for what God did, but also for who He IS.
The one thing that especially stuck to me from this passage is the verse "10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you. " Unlike people, God is exactly what His name is.
