Daily D – Psalm 50:14-15
Psalm 50:14, 15 “Sacrifice thank offerings to God, fulfill your vows to the Most High, and call on me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”
Psalms 50:14-15 NIV
“Make thankfulness your sacrifice to God, and keep the vows you made to the Most High. Then call on me when you are in trouble, and I will rescue you, and you will give me glory.”
Psalms 50:14-15 NLT
Spread for me a banquet of praise,
serve High God a feast of kept promises,
And call for help when you’re in trouble—
I’ll help you, and you’ll honor me.
What does God want most from you? This psalm tells us which two items top his list. They are gratitude and trust. Our Father in heaven is the giver of all good things (James 1:17). Without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6).
We please God and honor him when we trust him for whatever we need when we need it.
Some people allow pride to rob them of God’s blessings. They choose not to pray when they have needs or problems. We have an open invitation from our Father in heaven who loves us with an everlasting love to come into his presence with our needs. This honors him. This is the pathway to his provision.
What problems or uncomfortable issues do you have before you today? God is waiting and listening and ready to move into action on your behalf. Praise is the Username. Thanksgiving is the password. Prayer is the network. Deliverance is the result.
Our trust in action honors God and blesses us.
This is not complicated. It is relational glue. It is the essence of a life of faith.
Praise God for who he is.
Thank him for what he has done.
Lift your problems in prayer to our Father in heaven.
I will relate to God with gratitude and trust.
Our Father, you are the Giver of All Good Things. You invite us into an ever-deeper and loving relationship. You ask us to bring our troubles to you. This is not a bother or burden to you. Instead, it is a demonstration of trust on our part. It leads to our praise and thanksgiving because you answer our prayers better than we pray them. You are better to us than we would be to ourselves. Teach us more and more how to live with gratitude and trust. Amen.

Jeremiah 18:1-4 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Go down to the potter’s house, and there I will give you my message.” So I went down to the potter’s house, and I saw him working at the wheel. But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him.
Philippians 1:4-6 In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Jeremiah 17:7, 8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.”
2 Chronicles 35:25 Jeremiah composed laments for Josiah, and to this day all the male and female singers commemorate Josiah in the laments. These became a tradition in Israel and are written in the Laments. (NIV)
