Praising Alone and With Others
David didn’t require being with a group but praised God even while alone. He probably did more praising alone than he did in religious gatherings. “By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me – a prayer to the God of my life” (Ps. 42:8). Yet, he was just as ready to praise God along with others; “I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation I will praise you” (Ps. 22:22). David, obviously, was not one of those persons who went around saying, “God knows what’s in my heart”. What was in his heart found outward expression both alone and with others.
