I will bless the lord at all times - sermon, song, lyrics and meaning

Life gets so bad and challenging sometimes that we feel like giving up. But like the song writer, can you also say "I will bless the lord at all times"? Especially when things do not go the way we planned it, then, we are tempted to resolve to the blame game. Sometimes, we start asking God why? why? why? We are either asking why He has not answered our prayers or why things go the way they did. However, in all challenges, God expects that we still give Him the thanks that is due to Him. You know why? According to Jeremiah 29:11, it is clear that the thoughts which God has for you and me are those that will give us peace and a glorious future.

You don't have to necessarily see God before you know that He exists. In the same vein, it is not until you see Him working things for you before you begin to see the need to thank Him. Take for an instance, if you were to find yourself in the prison just as Paul and Silas did, what would you have done? Blame God? Renounce or deny Him? Find a way of escape for yourself? Instead of doing all these, Acts 16:25 tells us that Paul and Silas prayed and also gave thanks. They didn't allow their present circumstance to dictate how and what they should do.

Thanksgiving is not an option, it is a requirement from every sincere child of God. One of the demands that God has placed on every one of His children is to give Him thanks. In fact, the book of Isaiah explains that God created us so that we would praise Him. So, if you were created to praise God, why won't you then?

"I will bless the lord at all times" meaning

Life is about choices; and the choices we make can move us forward, cause us to be stagnant or even lead to a retrogression. In spite of what comes your way or what you go through in life, like the Psalmist, you can decide to praise God instead of complaining. To bless the Lord at all times indicates that you have chosen to appreciate Him in the face of every event of your life. It can also mean that you have decided to cultivate an attitude of thanksgiving. Even when things do not seem to be like it, you are not moved. While others are complaining or bemoaning their situation, you don't allow all of that to determine what and how you would also react.

However, coming into a conclusion like this is a sign that you have decided to look beyond your current situation and trust in the awesome power of God. It also suggests that you have gotten to a point in your life where nothing matters to you again other than to be acceptable before God. No amount of the heat of challenges that the enemies make up for you can shake you or make you to loose your faith in God's ability to do all things.

You have come to understand that complaints or murmurs can be very dangerous. We are told in 1 Corinthians 10:10 that murmuring can lead to destruction. Many of the children of Israel who left the country of Egypt for Canaan never got there because of their murmurings. So, to bless God always means to appreciate Him for what He has done in expectation for what you trust Him to do again.

"I will bless the lord at all times" sermon

1 I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2 My soul shall make her boast in the Lord: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

3 O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt his name together.

4 I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

5 They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

Psalm 34:1-5 (KJV)

Man is limited in their reasoning. There is a part of us that only believes when we have seen. But then, according to the scripture, the reverse is the case - we are meant to believe before we can see. There are lots of things that God is always doing for you which you do not understand. That is why waiting until you see the things you asked or prayed for before you give thanks to God may actually be a big mistake that you are making. In the case of Job, a lesson worth learning about him is that, in spite of all that he was going through, he maintained an attitude of thanks to God.

It is interesting to know that God is always waiting for us to praise Him irrespective of what we are going through. The verse says "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth". The psalmist made a resolve that no matter what he is passing through, whether the fire or trial, he would bless the Lord. When things work well and even when they don't seem to do, he said he would bless the Lord. No matter the disappointments that come his way or the level of oppositions from his enemies, they would not hold him back from praising his God. This is the level God expects you to operate from. Like the Psalmist, He expects you also bless His name.

God expects you to lift up your voice and adore Him for who He is and what He can do. He wants you to constantly cultivate an attitude of gratitude. You know why? There is power in praise. The best way to connect God or bring Him into your situation is by praising Him. We are even told in Psalm 22:3 that He inhabits the praise of Israel. By implication, God dwells where there is praise. The remaining part of that verse says "his praise shall continually be in my mouth". This is to tell you that complaint is not permitted in your mouth. No. God does not want you to complain at all, instead, He wants you to cultivate the attitude of praise.

One thing I have come to understand is that those who praise God about everything sincerely rarely complain about anything. When you train yourself enough to praise God in all things, you won't be left with something to complain about. But why do I have to praise God? You may ask. Well, the simple answer is for all He had done for you in past. You are not alive because you could bribe death or manoeuvre your way; you are alive because He kept you. And this should tell you something: that you are alive is a proof that God has not given up on you. You may not be where you want to be, but the question is are you where you used to be? Think about that.

Moreover, another reason why the Psalmist resolved to praising God always is found in the fourth verse of that chapter. It reads: I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears. God had already promised in Matthew chapter seven verse seven that when you seek you will find. Also, in Jeremiah 29:13, He also promised that when you seek Him, you will find Him. This goes to tell you that in whatever you pass through in life, learn to seek God. Seek Him with the whole of your heart.

"I will bless the Lord at all times" song

The song, "I will bless the Lord at all times" is a song of commitment to God that no matter what one goes through, in the thick and thin of it all, we would give thanks to the Lord. The author derived his inspiration from the 121st book of Psalm where David wrote "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth". You will agree to the fact that while it can be very easy to praise God when things are going right or smooth, it can be so challenging when there is no reason to praise God.

This is a time when it seems as though the whole of hell is let loose against you. You turn to the right and left but you cannot find anyone to help. Even friends and loved ones to whom you have been of help to in the past, all of them just suddenly deserted you. While in the midst of all these, it is easy to ask "God, why have you forsaken me". Instead of that, what did the Psalmist says he would do? "I will bless the Lord at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth".

This song serves to remind you always that God is good. In the lyrics, it says "I will bless the Lord at all times, He's good". It does not matter how bad things are right now, when you learn to see the goodness of God in your life and around you, blessing Him will not be a challenge to you. People may look at you and say "are you insane?" This is because by human reasoning, there is nothing worth thanking God for. Yet, in all, the songs says, "I will bless the Lord at all times". This is a song of encouragement to you that no matter what comes your way, whether good or bad, you have got to bless the Lord.

In conclusion, while murmurings or complaining can becloud your eyes from seeing the good things that the Lord is doing for you, appreciating Him always opens you up to enjoy more of His goodness. This is why, like David did, you also need to stand and declare "I will bless the Lord at all times, no matter what comes my way?"
