Psalm 34 1. I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. 2. My soul shall make her boast in the Lord; the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad. The word "boast" comes from the word Halal, a root word meaning to shine, to flash forth light, to praise, boast, be boastful, boastful ones, to glory, to praise, to be praised, be made praiseworthy, be commended, be worthy of praise, to act up, and the list of applications goes on. I've been attending Baptist Churches for the past 39 years and I've never once witnessed any of those assemblies "act up" in boastful appreciation of the Lord. All churches need structure and procedure but not the stuffed shirts. When was the last time you "boasted" on the Lord? You do realize that we are to boast on the Lord during the good times and the bad times. Through good health and bad health. Through secure times and through fearful times. We are to praise him continually. To "act up" for His glory.
