“Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” (Psalm 103:1-5)
In this time of Thanksgiving, we are reminded of what all we are thankful. As followers of Jesus, we have a lot to be thankful for everyday. Here in a portion of Psalm 103, David shares several of those things that He is thankful for that God has done. He is thankful for the redemption that comes from the Lord. He is thankful that God heals. He is thankful that God rescues us and that God shows us great love and mercy.
All these things that God has shown to David, He shows to us as well. We should, like David, sing out about God’s faithfulness and lovingkindess. How He has redeemed us and given us new life. How He has given us hope and salvation. This week, let us continue to be thankful and grateful for all that God has done for us and continues to do for us through Jesus Christ.
