Hope from the Truths of God's Word

Remember His Blessings

This is our final post in the Praise Him series we began in November ’13. What better way to start a new year than to remember the generous nature of our God?

Psalm 103:4 Praise HimBless 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 iniquities
Who heals all your diseases
Who redeems your life from destruction
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies
Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:1-5 (NKJV)

Thanks to Kela Nellums for sharing her heart of praise with us today.

Where, O Lord, do I begin with praising You for so much that You show us in Your Word?
Your benefits, the awesome things, for my life are numerable!
My iniquities, You forgive.
My diseases, You heal.
My destructive life, You redeem.
Lovingkindness and mercies, Lord, You crown me with those!
The good things and restoration of my youth, O Lord, You satisfy.
Falling to my knees is the only way to show You reverence.
In You I am found worthy of all of Your benefits.

Worthy 

(jennifer here) We may not “feel” worthy, but Jesus made sure that we are. Let’s celebrate that in 2013, Jesus’ covenant with God faithfully covered our unworthiness and delivered all of God’s benefits. In 2014, may we engage the life of true and unshakeable wealth He has provided.

What has He done for you in 2013? Are you expecting His faithfulness in 2014? Regardless of our trials, He is our Hope. And so we put on the garment of praise.

About Jennifer O. White

I'm a simple wife who has discovered God's amazing gift of prayer. Here at Prayerfully Speaking I share my journey of unwrapping this gift. God invites us to ask Him, but His enemy works diligently to keep that from happening. I hope to offer you encouragement to believe God is ready to pour more into your life than you've ever imaged.

    Thank you for the post. It is true that it’s easy to not to feel worthy, even when we know our identity in Christ, usually we know it with our head, not our hearts.
