Rising Joy, by Vicki Matheny
Magnify the Lord with me! Let’s praise his name together! Psalm 34.3
This psalm was written be David. The superscription makes a reference to 1 Samuel 21.10-15. David had gone to King Achish of Gath to flee from Saul who was King of Israel.
When David heard what the king’s servants were saying about him to Achish, he was very afraid. He altered his behavior and pretended to be insane in their presence. David was able to leave there without coming to harm.
This psalm praises the Lord. The Christian should be continually praising him. Our boasting should be in the Lord and all that he has done for us. As his name becomes known in the earth, his glory is increased and magnified. He answers our prayers for help and delivers us from our fears.
Let us be like David and taste and see that the Lord is good!
