Benefits Galore

today's reading.
Psalm 103:1-22    Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!...
Psalms 103

think about it.
Why is David so full of joy? How do you see God restoring those who've sinned? What does this psalm teach you about how God will respond to you when you fail Him?

the blog.
Psalm 103 tells us to "Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not his benefits" (vs. 2). The Psalm then goes on showing us many of those benefits. I love the reminders in verse 4 that we are redeemed from the pit and then verse 12 where we are told that our sins are removed "as far as the east is from the west." Thank you, God!

So what touched your heart today from Psalm 103? Any benefits you've experienced that aren't included here? What can we do to make sure we "forget not his benefits?" Tami W.
