This Psalm is David writing himself a 'spiritual sticky note' - if you will. A reminder of all He's been given in having life with God. David is challenging himself and US – don’t let your hearts become ungrateful or drift from living with a thankful heart! Grow your gratitude by never losing sight of God's benefits. More gratitude will not come from more acquisitions, but from more awareness of God's presence with you and God's goodness to you. His blessings and benefits!

We have a phrase we use: 'sing the praises' - referring to when we talk up or share about something or someone that means a lot to us. Psalm 145 is chalked full of insights, understandings and instruction all about praise for God. King David is talking up God, practicing his praise to the Lord and pushing us to follow his pattern - to make praise a normal and natural part of our lives. It's helping us learn how to PAUSE to PRAISE and to grow our relationship with God.
