Reflecting on God’s Word . . .

Psalm 103:1-5 NLT
[1] Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.

[2] Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.

[3] He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases.

[4] He redeems me from death and crowns me with love and tender mercies.

[5] He fills my life with good things. My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

Reflection . . .

The first five verses of this Psalm give us reason to praise the Lord with our whole heart.

  1. He is holy
  2. He does good things for us
  3. He forgives sin
  4. He heals
  5. He redeems
  6. He crowns us with love and mercy
  7. He fills us with good things
  8. He renews us

What an incredible list just in these verses! Sometimes, well, many times we get focused on all the negative situations and things around us, but when we stop to think and remember all that the Lord has done for us and in us, how can we not but give Him praise and glory with all that we have and all that we are!
