“Bless 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” Psalm 103:1-2, NKJV.
After we read the blessings of God toward us in this psalm, we can only be full of thanksgiving. There is no other response, but to bless, or praise, Him in return. The Lord fills every place and speaks to every part of your life, declaring that He continually spiritually and physically each day blesses you.
We bless the Lord because He blessed us. Praise the Lord because He keeps blessing you. No matter what you have or don’t have, who you couldn’t travel to see, or who isn’t here anymore, let the psalm of His word bring an overflow of joy. Receive peace and strong gratitude as you decide to trust in His love and sovereignty. That’s what His word is meant to do.
With all that is in you, bless the Lord. Bless His holy name!
Prayer: Father, I bless You. After I read the Psalm of Your word, there’s no room for complaining or anything else. I am grateful to see another Thanksgiving. I bless Your great name! I thank You for being so good to me. Even in a pandemic, You have taken care of me. May I speak Your manifold blessings over my life daily, and I’m thankful to know You are for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
