A psalm of praise. Of David.
1 I will exalt you, my God the King; I will praise your name for ever and ever. 2 Every day I will praise you and extol your name for ever and ever.
3 Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; his greatness no one can fathom. 4 One generation commends your works to another; they tell of your mighty acts. 5 They speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty— and I will meditate on your wonderful works.[b] 6 They tell of the power of your awesome works— and I will proclaim your great deeds. 7 They celebrate your abundant goodness and joyfully sing of your righteousness.
8 The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.
9 The Lord is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made. 10 All your works praise you, Lord; your faithful people extol you. 11 They tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, 12 so that all people may know of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. 13 Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations.
The Lord is trustworthy in all he promises and faithful in all he does.[c] 14 The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down. 15 The eyes of all look to you, and you give them their food at the proper time. 16 You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.
17 The Lord is righteous in all his ways and faithful in all he does. 18 The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth. 19 He fulfills the desires of those who fear him; he hears their cry and saves them. 20 The Lord watches over all who love him, but all the wicked he will destroy.
21 My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord. Let every creature praise his holy name for ever and ever.

Joshua 24 v 15 – …Choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
Following someone can be tough at times. It means if they travel down a gravel road and stir up dust, it usually settles on the vehicles behind them. Jesus often took paths in his ministry that offered challenges for his disciples, yet the twelve continued to follow. Jesus urged His disciples to enter into a boat just after they served 5000 plus people with food, a miracle in itself. Jesus urge his men to enter into a ship and sail into an oncoming storm. If the men of Jesus had chosen not to set sail, they would have missed our Lord walk across the very thing the men feared the most, the stormy seas. Jesus came to there rescue and one even stepped out of the vessel and defied the odds and Unconditionally followed Jesus. Who will you follow today? Money, Sex, Power? Follow Jesus. His path will lead you to fulfillment in which nothing else can compare. Check out the events, Read Matthew 24 verse 22 thru 33
God Bless you today.
