Public Praise


1 Chron. 29:10a (KJV): "Wherefore David blessed the LORD before all the congregation:"

The first truth that I have gleaned from this passage is that when God does great and marvelous things - we should give Him praise. We should not take the honor to ourselves, but place it where it really belongs - on Him.

Notice also, David didn't go off into some remote corner and whisper his thanks to God. He made sure everyone around him knew it was God's doing. Even today we talk about how great it was that David gathered all the materials for the building of the Temple -- David makes it plain that it was not him, it was Him.

When things happen in our lives, we need to give God the praise before others. This is a very important way to witness to the reality and sovereignty of God.

Today, seek to give praise to God before others for the things that are in your life.
