“O God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory.” Psalm 108:1 (KJV)
Giving the fulness of God glory was a matter of an established heart for David. Even when he had received the adulation of his people he directed praise to God with his own tongue.
No wonder God refers to David as “a man after Mine own heart”.
When those who believe God, the fulness of the Godhead, then we direct all praise to Him. When we are lauded, then we give it to Him; for He alone is worthy. With our hearts we praise Him. With our lives we praise Him. With our property we praise Him. With our tongue we praise Him.
When we start to speak derogatorily of another; speak a word of praise to God instead. A tongue that is praising God cannot speak ill of another. This is not speaking of confrontation of sin with an individual.
Praise God through the Lord Jesus Christ who is God’s payment for our sins.
