His Benefits

Every day  we have benefits  that we take for granted  or feel we deserve.      We don’t even think  of thanking God  for them  because we feel  we have earned them.     But,  with those feelings,  we should consider  that if God did not give us  the needed health  and talents  to earn  the things we desire,  we would not have  those things.

And,  there are some things  absolutely no amount of money  could ever buy.     So,  ultimately  all thanks  really does  always  and forever belong  to the LORD.

Everyone needs  to sing  with David  in 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.

Here David lists  the important blessings  we can receive  only from the LORD.     These are the necessities  that money  can’t buy.     There is no way  we can earn  any of these blessings.     And yet,  these are  an absolute necessity  for eternal life.

Have we blessed the LORD  for each one  of these today?

With humble  and thankful hearts  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  You are so loving,  kind,  and faithful  in providing everything  we really need  for eternal life.     Your name is  blessed forever.”

Love,
Margaret
