Scripture:   Psalm (NIV) 119:108 Accept, LORD, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws.

Observation:    This is the praise that really blesses God — willing praise!  He deserves nothing less!   

Application:    First:  I should give “willing praise” to God when things are going great!   It is right to thank and praise Him for guiding my steps in times when it seems everything is working great!  It is just the right thing to do!  Second:  I should give “willing praise” to God when the good and bad things average out and my day is just average.  It is just the right thing to do!  Third:  I should give “willing praise” to God when things are tough and it seems nothing is going my way.  It is still the right thing to do!  He is no less God or less worthy on one day than on another. 

Prayer:   Lord, you should never have to twist my arm to get me to praise you.  May “willing praise” be my language every day.   Amen
