Ps.103:1-2 David tells his soul to bless the Lord,and then tells his soul not to forget the benefits,it is important for us to learn to talk to ourselves,and remind ourselves of God’s goodness to us especially in trials when we have natural reasons to doubt Him.
The benefits that are listed are as follows.
(1) He forgives all our iniquities,and heals all our diseases.
(2) He redeems our life from destruction, and Crowns us with lovingkindness and tender mercies.
(3) He satisfies our mouth with good things: so that our youth is renewed like the eagles.
(4)He executes judgment and righteousness for all those who are oppressed.
(5)He has not dealt with us after our sins nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
(6)His mercy is great toward those who fear Him.
(7)As far as the east is from the west so far Has he removed our transgression from us.
As we speak to ourselves the word of God and remind ourselves of the benefits of this new life in Christ we will stay encouraged in a place of faith, No matter what goes on around us we will rise above it, and we will know that He is daily loading us with benefits,and we will be always praising Him.
