Psalm 138 - A Psalm of Thanksgiving

The Book of Psalms is filled with prayers of thanksgiving. King David, Asaph, or the sons of Korah sang many Psalms to give thanks to the Lord. They expressed their gratitude because they recognized their Saviour, the source of all victory and life. We cannot remain silent when God grants us His grace every day! If you are currently having a hard time noticing His work, listen to the words of David: may this Bible passage remind you of the Lord’s many blessings! 

A Psalm of Thanksgiving

1 I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart; before the “gods” I will sing your praise.

2 I will bow down toward your holy temple and will praise your name for your unfailing love and your faithfulness,

for you have so exalted your solemn decree that it surpasses your fame.

3 When I called, you answered me; you greatly emboldened me.

4 May all the kings of the earth praise you, Lord, when they hear what you have decreed.

5 May they sing of the ways of the Lord, for the glory of the Lord is great.

6 Though the Lord is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar.

7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, you preserve my life.You stretch out your hand against the anger of my foes; with your right hand you save me.

8 The Lord will vindicate me; your love, Lord, endures forever— do not abandon the works of your hands.
