Blessing After Blessing
Posted: July 30, 2016
"O my soul, bless God.
From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
O my soul, bless God,
don’t forget a single blessing!
He forgives your sins—every one.
He heals your diseases—every one.
He redeems you from hell—saves your life!
He crowns you with love and mercy—a paradise crown.
He wraps you in goodness—beauty eternal.
He renews your youth—you’re always young in his presence."
- Psalm 103:1-5 (MSG)
Have you ever thought about how easy it is to remember bad things that happen to you? I don't know if that's just how our brain works, but for some reason bad memories seem to stick out more. BUT, if we really think about it, the number of good things in our lives far outweigh the bad.
If you're having a bad day/week/month, stop what you're doing, open your Bible, and begin reading about all the amazing things God has done in your life. We have so many reasons to be joyful and praise God. If you need a quick 25, go read all of Psalm 103. God pours out blessing after blessing on us. I love that God is so big and so mighty that he isn't limited to only one type of miracle. He doesn't just save or heal or redeem. He does it all. His power is limitless and his love is endless.
This weekend, be reminded of all that God has done and is continuing to do in your life. Be reminded, and give God some praise.
Lord, thank you for saving me. Thank you for healing and redeeming me. I am no longer bound for hell. I am your child. Thank you for loving me enough to send Jesus to pay the price for my sin. Thank you for loving me like a good Father. Amen.
