Proverbs 23:12 - Apply your heart to instruction...

NIV Apply your heart to instruction
and your ears to words of knowledge.
KJV Apply thine heart unto instruction, and thine ears to the words of knowledge.

The Hebrew word for instruction can be translated as "discipline." To be a person of wisdom, it takes dedicated instruction and discipline. Commit yourselves this week to disciplined instruction in the Word.

Psalm 9:2 - I will sing praise to your name, O Most High

NIV I will be glad and rejoice in you;
I will sing praise to your name, O Most High.
KJV I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.

David is praising God with all his heart for deliverance from his enemy, giving Him all the glory. In Psalm 9, David doesn't praise the armor, the weapons, or any other aid in the victory; He solely praises the Almighty God.

In our own lives, when we are blessed in little or big ways, do we praise God with every fiber of our being? David isn't halfhearted with his praise. He is full of gratitude so much that it overflows in this poem of praise.

Think this week how God has blessed or delivered you. Allow that to sink in and overflow with joy to the Lord. It's a wonderful day to reflect on the blessings from our Creator and honor Him with our praise.
