Blessing God


1 Chron. 29: 10b (KJV): "...and David said, Blessed be thou, LORD God of Israel our father,"

Can we bless God? Don't we usually seek for Him to bless us?

David got it right here. Yes, God does bless us, however we were created to praise God, and one of the ways of doing this is offering our blessings to Him. David was very specific in who he was talking too, and he was certian of the grandeur of the one he was addressing.

Still, he offered his blessings to God. When was the last time that you blessed God? The word used here simply means to kneel before, to bless, to praise, to salute. When you pray to God, is it always to receive something, or do you ever just talk to Him and salute Him for who He is.

David is about to thank God for His abundant blessing, and he begins by offering a verbal sacrifice of praise to God.

Today, take some time just to offer praise to the One who is our Creator, Sustainer, Redeemer, our Maker (as the song says).
