Bless the Lord

We ought not to make our praises of God to depend on our own personal and present reception of benefits. This would be bare selfishness. Even publicans and sinners have a good word for those whose hands are enriching them with gifts. It is the true believer who will bless the Lord when He takes away His gifts, or hides His face. - C.H. Spurgeon 

Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. 

-Habakkuk 3:17-18

I will bless the LORD at all times: His praise shall 
continually be in my mouth. 
Psalms 34:1

He calleth them all by their names

Look up into the night sky, and remember Who it is that made those billions and billions of stars, and calls each one by their names. He is Your Maker. If you know Him as your Lord and Saviour, He is your own Heavenly Father, and He cares for you. 

"Lift up your eyes on high, and behold Who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: He calleth them all by names by the greatness of His might, for that He is strong in power; not one faileth." -Isaiah 40:26

He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. -Psalms 147:4

"Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you." -1 Peter 5:7

And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 
Matthew 8:26

Why do you doubt,
When the LORD is your Master?
Why do you doubt, 
When He ruleth the seas? 
Why do you doubt? 
Dear child of His, ponder. 
May it not be He asketh thee?

...O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt? - Matthew 14:31b

Is the Almighty God Who created all things your Saviour?
