“I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.” Psalm 69:30 (NIV)

David, of course, not only wrote songs, he also did a lot of singing, beginning when he was very young. Here he explains why he did it. He wanted to praise God and glorify Him. What does it mean to glorify God? It means to make God more glorious. That does not mean that we can change God or add to His glory in heaven. So how can we make Him more glorious by our praise? What really happens when we thank God is that we see more clearly how glorious He is. And others who hear our praise will see more of His glory too. So our thanksgiving really increases our concept of God’s glory and He becomes more glorious to us and to others.
