“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 lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalms 103:1-5
Has God ever forgiven you? Has He ever healed you? Has He redeemed your life from destruction? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, then sister, you are blessed! There are people in the world who long to be forgiven, who would give anything to experience healing, restoration, and the redemptive power of God. However, you have experienced these things, and you are blessed!
To be blessed means that you are happy, fortunate, admirable and enviable. It means people look upon you and say, “God is good to her!”
Yet, sometimes we forget just how good He has been and how blessed we are. We think about everything that’s not going right, and what God hasn’t manifested yet in our lives. But the Holy Spirit will always lead us to think on God’s goodness. Why? Because He knows if we continue to think on the goodness of God, joy will rise in our hearts and we will be strengthened.
Prayer: Father, you have been so good to me and I thank you. You have forgiven me, healed me, and redeemed me by the blood of Jesus. Thank you Lord for everything you’ve done and continue to do in my life. Help me not to forget all that you’ve done. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
