Psalm 103: 1 – 5

Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget none of His benefits; who pardons all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases; who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion; who satisfies your years with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle.

This is one of my favorite passages in the Bible. I remember well when it came home to roost in my heart. I was in Florida, getting ready to go for a bike ride. It was the passage I read that morning and somehow the words just sealed themselves upon my heart. All that day i kept repeating them to myself.  Sometimes I still walk around saying to myself, “Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name.” Those words bless me but even more the thought that I have any means by which to bless the Lord our God.

Additionally, this passage is packed to the brim with GOOD news. Do you ever just want to shout when you read some of these passages? Does it agitate your spirit in a good way? Man, this one exciting collection of promises! Here is my advice – pick one. Pick a favorite from above and bless God.

You can bless Him by believing the promise. You can bless Him by thanking Him for it and certainly you can praise Him. If this passage brings joy to your heart, that blesses our Father. When you share it with others, you bless Him.

Allow these words to penetrate your heart today and bless the Lord!
