It's Time to Change the Subject!

Description

David could have succumbed to discouragement in the midst of his family problems. But David knew that God was good, and he chose to bring this truth into remembrance until it was fully revealed in his life.

“Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him for the help of His countenance. O my God, my soul is cast down within me; therefore I will remember You from the land of the Jordan, and from the heights of Hermon, from the Hill Mizar.” (see Psalm 42:5-6) 

Today, exchange your complaints with praise ... But why, you may ask? Here’s what the Word of God says: “But You are holy, Enthroned in the praises of Israel.” (see Psalm 22:3)

  1. God creates a throne of our praises.
  2. There, where we praise Him, He reigns in victory.
  3. Praising God changes our state of mind. 

“This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” (see the Bible, Lamentations 3:21-23)

David understood ... he could have succumbed to discouragement in the midst of his family problems, Saul’s rejection, and all the scheming and mockery of his enemies. But David knew that God was good, and he chose to bring this truth into remembrance until it was fully revealed in his life. 

So, it’s time to change the subject! Choose to praise rather than complain, and watch God act! Thank Him for all of His benefits, and you won’t have time to complain any longer!
