In the opening of this psalm,the psalmist asks for God to remember His people and His commitment to them as a result of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem.

The big problem was ignorance of the Scriptures (v. 9). The psalmist was perplexed by the seeming delay of God (vv. 10-11). He begs God to defend His honor (v. 10).
When I start praising God, no matter what the present circumstances are, it means that I have already begun to rise above them. How I am doing in this area depends on my daily fellowship with Him.
