Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of September 14, 2014

JoBeth05Bless 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. Psalm 103:2-5 (NKJV)

When considering a new job or opportunity, don’t we carefully evaluate the benefits before making our decision? And, when a job gets difficult or frustrating we often remind ourselves of the benefits in order to hang in there. Like the Psalmist in these verses, we may need to be reminded of the significant benefits that are ours when we choose to follow the Lord. By applying these truths to ourselves individually, we can declare: He forgives MY iniquities (wrong tendencies and actions)! He heals MY diseases! He redeems MY life from destruction! He crowns ME with love and mercy! He satisfies ME with goodness and He renews MY youth like the eagles! Be blessed in your soul today and forget not His benefits. Amen.
