Bless the Lord, 0 my soul, and forget not all His benefits. Psalm 103:2
Listen to these words: “Who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, Who satisfies your desires with good th ings” (Psalm 103:3-5).
Look what you brought to the table; iniquity, disease and destruction! Now look what He brought; healing, for all your diseases. The Bible says, “He healed them all” (Matthew 8:7). Rejoice, child of God, what He was, He still is, and what He did, He still does! Forgiveness, for all your sins … Love without measure; grace without limit! What an arrangement! There is deliverance from all your destructive ways and habits. Sometimes He delivers you instantly, other times He does it “day by day!” Lovingkindness and tender mercy; He’s above-watching over you, beneath-upholding you, outside-embracing you, and inside-filling the emptiness in your life. Satisfaction that doesn’t depend on what you wear, what you drive, what you have in the bank, or on which side of the tracks you live. He saves! He keeps! He satisfies!
Notice, everything He brings to the table is for your benefit. You don’t have to earn it, and you can’t deserve it!
Now why in the world would you want to focus on what you brought when you can focus on what He brought?
