Psalm 103:2-5 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Psalm 103:2-5

Praise the LORD, my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles. 

 

This passage speaks to me about how God goes above and beyond for us. Look at the “but wait there’s more” going on here. He not only forgives your sins but will heal your diseases. He not only will pull you out of the pits of your hell but will cover you with His love and compassion! As if it wasn’t good enough for Him just to save our souls; He wants to make sure we feel loved and complete along the way! He does this so we can show that same love and compassion on those around us! 

 


A practical example from my life is that God rescued me from my addiction, but He didn’t stop there. He accepted me into His family and has given me great brothers and sisters in Christ. He has given me peace and love, and He even went as far as using me to encourage and love on those around me!! What a great God we serve!!!!

 

Last night, my son came over. We don’t have the best relationship because of the choices in my life. But we had a good night. About an hour after he left, my brother texted me and said, “Your son wanted me to tell you he loves you and is coming back tomorrow to spend the night!!” That is like the spiritual cherry on top of this life God is building for me, and He will do it for you too!!

 

Just give Him a chance and invite Him in and watch Him work!! He doesn’t just want to save you; He wants to spoil you with His good things!!!

 

I love you all, God bless, and thank You, Father God, and to You be all the glory!!!!
