Today's Verse: Psalm 103:2-3

Tuesday, May 7, 2019

Praise the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits — who forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases...
— Psalm 103:2-3

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Our God is an awesome God. He not only defines and defeats sin; he also delivers us from the deserved penalty for our sin by forgiving our sins and purifying us of all unrighteousness. True healing means more than just curing a sick body — and we praise God for the times he has done that in our lives. No, true healing means to forgive and deliver us from what breaks our spirits and makes our souls and bodies unhealthy. Only God offers this "benefit" as part of his retirement package!

My Prayer...

How can I sufficiently praise you, Abba Father, for your mercy and grace that has forgiven, pardoned, and cleansed me of my sin. Help me never to forget the joy of being forgiven and included in your family. Thank you for your salvation. In Jesus' name I praise you. Amen.
