David was pouring out praise to God. Notice how he instructed his soul to praise the Lord, almost as if he was telling himself that he could do better. He did not stop there; he implored all of himself. David did not want to praise God half-heartedly—rather he wanted to praise God with everything he had. How often are we offering half-hearted praise to God? If we are honest with ourselves, can we say we make an effort to praise God in the way He deserves? How can we praise God with everything we have? Perhaps we can take a note from David by listing out the reasons why God is worthy of praise.'
