Praise in the Psalms – My Daily Bread!
Our call to praise the Lord of Heaven and Earth is taken out of Psalm 103: 1 – 5, 11 – 14, NIV, which read:
“Praise the Lord, o my soul; all my inmost being, praise His holy name. Praise the Lord, o 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 eagle’s. He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the havens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father has compassion on His children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him; for He knows how we are formed, He remembers that we are dust.”
Saints of the Most High God, be encouraged with our Fathers’ love on this day, for He has washed our sins away! Oh what a happy day! Here we are told of His great sacrificing love for those who fear and seek Him! This is a cause of great rejoicing, for we are His children and he knows each one of us intimately. His compassion rest upon us as we humbly come before Him seeking forgiveness and the freedom promised in Christ. We live in the “Son”, and praise His Holy Name!
