Psalms 103 - Forget Not His Benefits
The Psalmist is rejoicing and he recalls what it means to be in the Lord's family. He calls for all to praise the Lord. He calls the angels, the church, all that obey His Word, and finally everywhere in GODs dominion, this sums up everyone and everywhere. Read the scripture in its entirety and I guarantee you that you will be blessed. This Christian walk is not easy but it is the most rewarding because it lets you know that it just doesn't end on this earth but it is eternal!!!! See below for the benefits you will reap when you are in the Lord.
Gives me eternal life.
Forgives all your sins.
Heals all your diseases.
Redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.
Works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
Is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
Does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
His love is everlasting to everlasting to those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children
Made me a lender and not a borrower.
Called me blessed.
Is my friend.
Knows my name.
Gave me the authority to tread over serpents and scorpions, power of all the enemy.
To be able to call those things that are not as though they were.
I can go on and on to the break of dawn, to sum it all up, Our GOD is good and His mercy endures forever. He love us.
Thinking of the benefits that I have in Jesus and I am blessed beyond measure.
Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Psalms 103:2
Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. 2 Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— 3 who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, 5 who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed. 7 He made known his ways to Moses, his deeds to the people of Israel: 8 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever; 10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him; 12 as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. 13 As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him; 14 for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust. 15 The life of mortals is like grass, they flourish like a flower of the field; 16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more. 17 But from everlasting to everlasting the LORD’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children— 18 with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts. 19 The LORD has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all. 20 Praise the LORD, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word. 21 Praise the LORD, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will. 22 Praise the LORD, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the LORD, my soul. Psalms 103 NIV
