In today’s world, many are keenly conscious of those “benefits” associated with their employment. What sort of insurance do I have? What is my retirement package, etc.? But how frequently do we contemplate the “benefits” of our loving Father?
In Psalms 103:1-5, we are admonished to remember five marvelous “benefits” of being loved and cared for by God. They are expressed with the following verbs: forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, and satisfies. Let us reflect upon these promises.
This Week’s Word
Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5

With all that is within us, we bless Your Holy Name. We will bless You Lord, with all of our soul and we will not forget all of Your benefits. You have forgiven all of our iniquities. You have healed all of our diseases and redeemed our lives from Hell and destruction. You have crowned us with loving kindness and tender mercies and You have satisfied our mouth with good things so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. You are merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. You have not dealt with us according to our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
