Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,Psalm 103:2(ESV)
The psalms so often call upon us to bless the Lord with our whole being and never to forget all the multiplied benefits of His grace and goodness that are poured down on us in such abundance, day by day. Manifold are his mercies, which are new every morning and how pleasing it is to the Father to hear the reverent praise and grateful worship that comes from a heart that truly loves Him.
To bless the Lord means to delight in HIM, with our spirit, soul and body.. To bless the Lord means to express our love for Him with a grateful heart that is rooted in a humble reverence - that only desires that He is glorified. But to bless the Lord in this way calls for obedience and a total commitment to live as unto the Lord with our inner heart, soul, mind and strength determined to live godly in Christ Jesus.
Let us bless the Lord. Let us bless our heavenly Father with every fibre of our being. Let us bless our heavenly King and glorious Saviour with all that is within us - and let us never forget ALL His benefits for He has redeemed our life from the pit, and crowned us with loving-kindness and compassion.
He satisfies our years with good things, and renews our youth like the eagle. He is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger and abounding in loving-kindness - bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.
How we bless and thank You heavenly Father for Your many benefits, for Your never-ending grace and unconditional love. May I sing of Your praise with my whole being, for You alone are worthy, in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
