Life’s full of choices, isn’t it? The funny thing is, even when we don’t intentionally choose a response, we have still made a choice. Vertical Worship’s song, “Yes I Will,” reminds us that we can choose to bless the Lord at all times.
King David made that choice, and this week we explore one of the songs he wrote to remind himself of God’s faithfulness.

This Week’s Challenge
Take up residence in Psalm 34 this week. Ponder what you’ve learned about choices while learning much about the character of God in this psalm. Make lists and consider the repetitive phrases/ideas in this psalm (there are more than we discussed on the podcast). Talk to someone about what you’ve been studying (that’s another BITE by the way). Finally, let it sink in that you’re choosing…whether you’re choosing to bless the Lord at all times, sometimes, or not at all…you’re choosing. Will you choose to bless the Lord this week? Will you place HIS praise on your lips today?
