Let everything that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the  LORD.  Psalms 150:6

It’s very easy to be thankful in times of prosperity. But a true Christian will bless the Lord even in times of adversity. When we are bowed down under the burden of our trials is when we are more aware of how utterly unworthy we are of the least of His blessings. Then, even small blessings will draw out a voice of praise. There is much the Christian can learn from the Psalmist when he writes: “I will praise the LORD according to HIS righteousness: and will sing praise to the name of the LORD most high.”  – Psalms 7:17-

Through every changing day                       

With each new trial I mark

How wonderful are your ways O God

That guide me through the dark

Vindicate me, O God, and plead my cause against an ungodly nation; rescue me from deceitful and wicked men. You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy? Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell. Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God. Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.  Psalms 43
