“Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is (deepest) within me, bless His holy name! Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not (one of) all His benefits— …Who satisfies your mouth (YOUR NECESSITY AND DESIRE AT YOUR PERSONAL AGE AND SITUATION) with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s (strong, overcoming, soaring)!” Psalm 103:1,2 & 5 AMP
All I can say in response to our scripture today is, “WOW!” Did you know that God is not only aware of your circumstances, but He longs to satisfy your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation with good? God also promises to renew you with His supernatural strength in order that you can overcome every obstacle in your life!
You may be currently facing the obstacle of money, health, forgiveness, restoration in a relationship or wisdom, but you can count on the fact that God knows your personal age and situation and He will satisfy you with good, and you will once again soar like the eagle’s.
I am continually amazed at God’s unending love toward us and Psalm 103 is packed full of God’s promises to us as His children. Just listen to some of God assurance in this beautiful Psalm:
*God forgives us of all of our sin (v.3)
*God heals us of all our diseases (v.3)
*God redeemes us from the pit (v.4)
*God crowns us with His love and compassion (v.4)
*God satisfies our desires with good things (v.5)
*God renews our youth like the eagles (v.5)
*God is slow to anger toward us, abounding in love (v.8)
*God does not harbor anger toward us (v.9)
*God commands compassion on us because we fear (reverence) Him (v.13)
*God understands us, He formed us in our mother’s womb and He remembers that we are dust (v.14)
*God’s righteousness will be with our children’s children (v.17)
*God loves us (v.17)
Psalm 103 ends in verses 20-22 by giving total praise to God. Will you join me in praising God for all of His benefits? Let’s say this out loud together: “Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do His bidding, who obey His word. Praise the Lord, all His heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will. Praise the Lord, all his works everywhere in His dominion. Praise the Lord, O my soul”.
God is deeply in love with you my friend. It is my prayer that you will not forget ALL of God’s benefits. You can rest in the fact that God is personally aware of your situation. And because of Him, You are saved, healed, forgiven, and made righteous through the Cross. May you continually relish in God’s amazing love for you forevermore.
Prayer: “Lord, thank you for loving me and satisfying my necessity and desire at my personal age and situation with good. Thank you for forgiving me of my sins, healing me of all diseases, redeeming me from the pit, crowning me with love and compassion and renewing my youth with strength to overcome and soar. May I never forget all of Your benefits. Amen.”
