Bless by Remembering
Today's reading: Psalm 103:1-22
David issues the directive to "bless" or praise the Lord in Psalm 103. In verse 2 he states,
"Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits."
He then goes on to list out the benefits we receive as followers of God--He forgives, heals, redeems, loves, satisfies and renews us. Being intentional about recalling God's goodness and His love and care for us as His children is an excellent way to keep our minds focused on God. As such, we would be wise to make "blessing" the Lord a regular part of our daily lives.
Is it your practice to "bless" or praise the Lord, both privately and publically? If you were making a list of the benefits you've experienced as a child of God, what would you include on your list? How often do you take time to remember all that God has done for you and thank Him for it? Tami
