“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel for ever and ever. And all the people said, Amen, and praised the Lord.” 1 Chronicles 16:36

Almost everyone has a daily routine, things that they do every day, either once a day or perhaps several times throughout the day. For those who know the Lord, a normal activity that should be part of a believer’s daily routine throughout the day is to praise God for His goodness and His blessings to us. This is not something we should do only at special times, only when a specific prayer has been answered, or an event goes the way we hoped it would. This is an activity that we should do every day, all day, no matter what the circumstances. And we do this because we are aware that God has blessed us in an infinite number of ways. God’s blessings and His goodness are shown to us through the salvation that He provided through His Son. His grace and mercy are shown to us every day in countless ways, as He protects us, and provides for us, and comforts us. And as we live in the awareness of His great love for us, and as we are aware of His consistent demonstrations of that love to us, praise is the only normal response. No matter what goes on around you, make it part of your “daily routine” to praise God for His blessings and for His goodness to us.
