Psalm 34:1 NIV
1 I will extol{bless} the Lord at all times; His praise will always be on my lips.

From NetBible Ps 34:1

  • extol[01288] = bless, kneel, praise, salute as an act of adoration
  • praise[08416] = high praise(demanded by qualities or deeds or attributes of God), song or hymn
    *from halal[01984] = to shine

Bless the Lord at ALL times, in every situation and circumstance, before, in and after trials, in bright days and dark nights.

His praise shall continually be in my mouth, not in my heart merely, but in my mouth too. Our tongue is our glory, and it ought to reveal the glory of God. What a blessed mouthful is God’s praise! -Spurgeon

The Lord deserves blessing with the heart – and high praise – a song on the lips!

Out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks and sings! -Lk 6:45

Great is the LORD, and highly to be praised[01984], And His greatness is unsearchable. -Ps 145:3

Because experiencing Your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise You{My lips brim praises like fountains.}. 
So I will bless[01288] You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name{My arms wave like banners of praise to You.}. -Ps 63:3-4

Psalm 103:1-5 {NASB, AMP}
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And all that is within me, bless His holy name.

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!

Bless the Lord, O my soul,
And forget none of His benefits;

Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits—

Who pardons all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases;

Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,

Who redeems your life from the pit,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion;

Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;

Who satisfies your years with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!

Thirsty – Lift Up Your Hands!

July 8, 2012

I spread out my hands to You; My soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah -Ps 143:6 NKJV

… I thirst for You as parched land thirsts for rain -Ps 143:6 NLT …

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for You, O God. My soul thirsts for the living God; When shall I come and appear before God{to drink in His presence}? -Ps 42:1-2

O God, You are my God, earnestly I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; my whole body longs for You in this parched and weary land where there is no water. I have seen You in the sanctuary and beheld Your power and Your glory. Because experiencing Your loyal love is better than life itself, my lips will praise You. For this reason I will bless You while I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name.-Ps 63:1-4

The lifting up of your hands to the Lord;

  • An indication of of wholehearted thirst after the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • A reflection of the lifting up of your heart and soul to be touched and filled. Jesus Christ alone, the fountain of living water, satisfies.

    Let each morning bring me word of Your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in You. Show me the way I should go, for to You I lift up my soul. -Ps 143:8

    How precious is Your unfailing love, O God! All people find shelter in the shadow of Your wings. They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them drink from the river of Your delights. For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light. -Ps 36:7-9

The lifting up of your hands to the Lord;

  • A banner of praise to bless and be blessed by the Lord.

    He blesses you; therefore, be zealous to bless him -Spurgeon

… I bless You every time I take a breath; My arms wave like banners of praise to You. -Ps 63:4 MSG

Behold, bless{affectionately and gratefully praise} the LORD, all you servants of the LORD, you who serve as night watchmen in the house of the LORD. Lift up your hands in the sanctuary and bless the LORD.

May the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth, bless you from Zion. -Ps 134

Stand up and bless the LORD your God Forever and ever! Blessed be Your glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing and praise! -Neh 9:5

I WILL confess and praise You [O God] with my whole heart; before the gods will I sing praises to You.

Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul. -Ps86:4:1
