O Most High

I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High. Psalm9:2 NLT
This song came out of reading Psalm 9 which David wrote as a psalm of thanksgiving for God’s justice. Even when we see situations that are unresolved, we need to praise God and thank Him for what He has done already. David does both in this Psalm - praises God for His wonderful deeds which reminds us of God’s power as the Most High, and calls out to God to continue acting because He is powerful. When we worship God for His power, we’re reminding ourselves that He is able to act in the situations that we feel are hopeless, and we also find it easier then to recall times when He has intervened for us in the past. Praise also increases our ability to find God in the present desperate situations.
I like songs that have declarations of intent in them. Like David, I intentionally began with I will.  I will praise you Oh Lord, with all my heart. I will. Even when I don’t feel like it. Because you are powerful and loving, O Most High.
