With those two sentences, David opens his praise to God through a psalm. He calls out for worship at a fully engaged level. "Let all that I am" he writes. The king of Israel offers his all in worship to the King of kings. In the latter part of verse two, David states what he wants never to happen.
The king does not want to forget. He wants to remember all of the good things God does for him. You and I do well to desire the same. When you remember what God does for you, you fuel thankfulness. After David briefly mentions God's generosity, he continues by expressing tangible examples of His giving.
Notice what David did. He wrote things down. He recorded what God had done for Him. That is a good habit to develop. Take time to recall and write the things God does for you. Times will come when the frustrations of the world will attempt to cloud your memory. You may allow those clouds to hinder you from remembering the goodness of God. May that not be.
If the idea of writing a record of God's goodness to you seems strange, start small. Begin by thinking about this morning. What has God done for you in such a relatively short period of time? Answer that question and then record your response. Once you have recorded the ways God has been good to you, use what you wrote as a catalyst for worship. Worship the God who has done great things.
