A Consistent State of Mind

I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. —Psalm 34:1

Worship must always come from an inward attitude. It embodies a number of factors, including the mental, spiritual and emotional. You may not at times worship with the same degree of wonder and love that you do at other times, but the attitude and the state of mind are consistent if you are worshiping the Lord.

A husband and father may not appear to love and cherish his family with the same intensity when he is discouraged, when he is tired from long hours in business or when events have made him feel depressed.

He may not outwardly show as much love toward his family, but it is there, nonetheless, for it is not a feeling only. It is an attitude and a state of mind. It is a sustained act, subject to varying degrees of intensity and perfection.

Whether I feel like it or not, whether I see Your hand in my circumstances or not, whatever enters my life today, “I will bless the LORD at all times” (Psalm 34:1). Amen.
