Burst Forth In Song
Psalm 30:12

The Upward Look
    by Max D. Hutto,

“That my soul may sing praise to Thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to Thee forever.” Psalm 30:12 NASB

This psalm of David is a prayer for deliverance from affliction and hardship. The climax of the psalm is a call to sing praise to God. Singing is a form of expressing our innermost thoughts and feelings. Having been saved from destruction and having had his sorrow turned into joy, David cannot be silent. He breaks into singing praise and thanks to God. Having been delivered from eternal death by faith in Jesus Christ, believers cannot be silent. We must burst forth in songs of praise to God.

Lord Jesus, I cannot be silent. From my very heart and soul, I must sing praises to You. With all that I am, I give thanks and praise to You for saving my soul!
