“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: who forgives all your iniquities, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalms 103:1-5
Has God forgiven you of all your wrong? Has He healed you and caused you to be well? Has He redeemed your life from a destructive path? Has He crowned you with His love? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, my sister, you are blessed among women! There are women in the world who don’t know the Lord, who would give anything to experience healing, restoration, and the redemptive power of God. You are blessed! To be blessed means that you are happy, fortunate, admirable and enviable. It means people look upon you and say, “God is good to her!”
Sometimes we tend to forget just how good God has been and how blessed we are. We think about everything that’s not going right, and what God hasn’t manifested yet in our lives. But the Holy Spirit will always lead us to think on the Father’s goodness. He knows if we continue to think on the goodness of God, joy will rise in our hearts and we will be strengthened. My husband always say, don’t be so focused on getting a blessing that you forget that God has blessed you right now.
Prayer: Father, you have been so good to me and I thank you. You have forgiven me, healed me, and redeemed me by the blood of Jesus. Thank you Lord for everything you’ve done and continue to do in my life. Help me not to forget all that you’ve done. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
