Ordinary life has its reasons for gratitude. Just because nothing is praiseworthy of ‘national or worldly’ praise, it does not mean that the individual should hold his thanksgiving to God.
This psalm starts with the note of thanksgiving and finishes with the faithfulness and the love of God.
If you were lost and have been found, give thanks.
If you were homeless and have found shelter, give thanks.
If you were afraid and have found God’s safety, give thanks.
If you were hungry and God filled your belly, give thanks.
If you were parched and God made streams of living water flow in and through you, give Him the glory.
When our lips are immersed by praise, His presence will fill our hearts no doubt.
