David sang to the LORD the words of this song when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies and from the hand of Saul. He said: "The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer. 2 Samuel 22:1-2
This is very similar to what we see all throughout the Psalms. David accomplished something great and he took time out to Praise the God who delivered Him. He did it often enough to make me think that it was a part of his character. Sure he sinned and fell and doubted and worried and obsessed over his enemies. But he also praised heartily.
We have the same things going for us. Of course we aren't kings and queens, but we still have our victories and valleys, our depressing times and our times of elation. We have ups and downs, highs and lows. Sometimes our lows are ruts, and our highs are Mt. Everest-like. But still, we seek Him.
Take time today to praise the Lord. Praise Him for who He is. Praise Him for what he's delivered your through. Praise Him for what He's continuing to do through you.
Praise Him, just because.
