• “False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Continual Praise by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 10/28/11

“I used to enjoy worship times at church. But now, the struggles at home just fill my mind all the time, and I can’t really get into praising God.”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Sometimes we have to praise God no matter how we feel or what we’re going through.

God had promised David that he would be the next king of Israel. But then David found himself for years hiding in the wilderness being chased by an insecure egomaniac named Saul. In those dark circumstances, David wrote Psalm 34.

“I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continuallybe in my mouth.”

Nancy: When he decided to praise the Lord, David’s heart was lifted.

“My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; the humble shall hear of it and be glad.”

Nancy: Praise isn’t a response to our circumstances, which are constantly changing. Praise is a response to the goodness of God who never changes.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
