Read Psalm 34:1-8 (19-22)
I will always thank the Lord;
I will never stop praising him.
2I will praise him for what he has done;
may all who are oppressed listen and be glad!
3Proclaim with me the Lord’s greatness;
let us praise his name together!
4I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me;
he freed me from all my fears.
5The oppressed look to him and are glad;
they will never be disappointed.
6The helpless call to him, and he answers;
he saves them from all their troubles.
7His angel guards those who honour the Lord
and rescues them from danger.
8Find out for yourself how good the Lord is.
Happy are those who find safety with him.
"I will praise him for what he has done; may all who are oppressed listen and be glad!"
- Psalm 34:2
The Psalmist gives thanks to God for many blessings; but no without being mindful of those who are struggling. God's good news is always Good news for those who are struggling.
Lord you have lifted me through difficult times; help me to lift others - and help me to accept other's help.
