Forget Not All His Benefits

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - The Sacramental Life - Day 350 - Psalm 103-1-5 - Forget Not All His Benefits - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – The Sacramental Life – Day 350 – Psalm 103-1-5 – Forget Not All His Benefits – Growing As Disciples

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.  Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits–  who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,  who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,  who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)  

Not Forget

That is something that I need to remember. What do you need to remember? I need to remember to not forget your benefits. Is that a difficult task? Is that hard to accomplish? It must be. Why do you think it must be difficult and hard to not forget my benefits? Well, the Bible is filled with people who forgot and even took your benefits for granted. Forgetting and taking your benefits for granted seems as common today as it was back then. It should not be so. I wish it were not true. I am embarrassed to say that I haven’t praised and thanked you enough for who you are and all that you have done for me. I know that failing to give you praise and thanks for your goodness is a sin which I willingly and freely confess to you now. Forgive my lack of praise and thanks to you. You are forgiven. What would you like to change? I would like to make praising and thanking you a regular part of my daily prayers to you. That will be very good.

Let me ask you a few questions? Go right ahead, I’m listening. Do you sometimes feel weary and worn out? Do you sometimes lack hope and peace and joy in your life? Would you like to be refreshed and revived and restored to full strength? You know my answer to each one of your questions. Yes, I often feel weary and worn out. Yes, I would like my life to overflow with hope and peace and joy. Yes, I would like to be refreshed, revived, and restored to full strength. I would like to run and not grow weary. I would like to walk and not faint. I would like to be like an eagle soaring in mid-flight. I have no doubt about that. Do you know what you are missing? Yes, I do. I lack all these things in my life because I am not abundantly praising and thanking you. That’s right. Daily, enter my presence with praise and thanksgiving and I will refresh and revive and restore you. As you praise and thank me, I will fill your life with hope and peace and joy. That I will do. That will be very good.

Lord, I know how easy it is to forget and fail to give praise and thanks to you for who you are and all you have done for me. Daily, in my prayers, I will remember all that you have done for me. Fill my life with joy as I give abundant thanks and praise to you. Amen

All His Benefits

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Promises - Day 103 - Psalm 103:1-5 - All His Benefits - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Promises – Day 103 – Psalm 103:1-5 – All His Benefits – Growing As Disciples

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.  Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits–  who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,  who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,  who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)

Richly Blessed

How are you doing? That is quite a broad question. Are you happy in life? Are you thankful and grateful for all I have done for you? Do you remember all I have done for you? Are you encouraged by all I have done for you? Is your faith growing stronger because you can recognize and remember all I have done for you? Do you have greater peace and hope and joy because all I have done for you is firmly fixed in your heart and mind? Now, I better understand your question. That is good.

So, how are you doing? You are doing well. Me, not so much. What do you mean by that? I have been making a serious mistake. How so? I have not recognized and remembered all that you have done for me. I have not continually given thanks and praise to you for all that you have done for me. I have not lived a life filled with gratitude. Why is that a serious mistake? Well, first I know that you desire that I give thanks and praise to you. You want me to be thankful and grateful. Yes, I do. What will happen to you if you are not thankful and grateful. What will happen to you if you lightly regard all I have done for you? What will you have less of when you fail to recognize and remember and give thanks for my many blessings on your life? I will have less hope and peace and joy when I don’t recognize and remember and give thanks and praise to you for all you have done for me. Why is that? I will forget how active and present you are in my life. I will lose track of how much you do love and care for me. That is true. What else? I will have less faith when I don’t recognize and remember and give thanks and praise to you for your many blessings. That is also true. Why is that? Recognizing and remembering how much you have been helping me in the past and present will give me greater faith to rely on you for my future. I will know, without a doubt, that you are with me to help me. You love and care for me. Your hand is on me. Your favor rests on me. Your kindness and mercy and love has been with me and will be with me in the future. That is true. Will you give me thanks and praise to me for how I have richly blessed your life? Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good. 

Lord, you have richly blessed my life. You have forgiven my sins and cleansed my unrighteousness. You have brought your healing into my life. You redeemed my life from the pit. You have given me good gifts. You have renewed my life. Thank you so much. Amen

Praise The Lord

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide - Promises - Day 62 - Psalm 103:1-5 - Praise The Lord - Growing As Disciples

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Promises – Day 62 – Psalm 103:1-5 – Praise The Lord – Growing As Disciples

Praise the LORD, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.  Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits–  who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,  who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,  who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Psalm 103:1-5 (NIV)  

Reflect And Remember

Do you take time to reflect and remember all I have done for you? Do you consciously consider how I have richly blessed your life? Do you remember that I have forgiven your sin and cleansed your unrighteousness? Do you know that I have healed what was your bruised and battered and broken life? Can you think back to when I redeemed your life? I pulled you out of a pit of muck and mire. I set your feet on solid ground. I have shown you my loving kindness. You have felt my compassion. You have received my mercy. Is it not true that I have richly blessed your life? Have I not satisfied your desires? Have I not revived, refreshed and renewed your life? Is all this lost and forgotten in the busyness of your life? Yes Lord, I will reflect and remember all you have done for me. It is true that the noise and busyness of my life could cause me to fail to remember all you have done for me. That would be tragic. That would be a huge mistake. That will not happen to me. Your great and many blessings fill me with gratitude. Your kindness and mercy and love fill my heart and mind and life with praise. Always do I want to be grateful. Always do I want to be thankful. Always do I want to give you all the praise and honor and glory you so richly deserve. That is very good.

There are a few things I know about praise. There is something more that I would like to say. Go ahead, I’m listening. I was meant to give you praise. Giving you praise is part of my make-up, it’s part of my being. If I want to live a healthy and whole and joyful life, I will give you praise. If I want my heart and mind and life to be revived and refreshed and renewed, I will give you praise. There is healing in giving you praise. There is hope in giving you praise. There is confidence and comfort and confidence in giving you praise. My faith is increased as I give you praise. My boldness to go and do what you ask of me is empowered as I give praise and thanksgiving to you. If I want to live in an intimate relationship with you, it will be filled with thanksgiving and praise. You know more than a few things about praise. Yes, and I will praise and thank you with all that is within me. That will be very good. Thank you, Lord. Praise you Lord.

Lord, I will take a pause. I will reflect. I will look back and remember all you have done for me. You have richly blessed my life. You have forgiven me. You have healed me. You have shown me your love and compassion. All praise and honor belong to you. Amen
