“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 We are now in the seventh month of being separated from our friends and our church family because of Covid…

    The “Me First” mentality has always existed, although it seems more widespread today because of social networking. What’s in it for me? is a plank in the Me platform. Coupons, perks, benefits. It’s human nature to go with the best deal. If the perks don’t match the effort, the job seeker looks elsewhere. Christianity has taken a step in the Me direction, asking for a description of perks before a commitment to be a disciple of Jesus. Scripture answers with “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:” (Psalm 103:2, Holy Bible, King James Version). Beyond that, Jesus said these are more than lifetime benefits—they extend into eternity. “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also,” (John 14:2-3, Holy Bible, New King James). What’s in it for me? Eternal life.
    Prayer: Lord Jesus, no matter what ups and downs may come, I will follow You. Amen.

“Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits” Psalm 103:2

God is daily showering us with blessings: life and breath, health and strength, joy and peace, just to name a few. How easy it is to forget the source of these things and just take them for granted.

We need to consciously remember the benefits God has given us. A great way to do this it keep a “blessing box”. Every day, write down on a slip of paper something God has done for you, and put it in your box.

When negative situations come your way, and you are tempted to feel discouraged and depressed, it’s time to pull out your blessing box. Sit and read all the benefits God has showered on you, and it will give you faith and hope for the future.

Prayer: Lord, thank You so much for all of Your kindness to me. Spiritual blessings, physical blessings, emotional blessings… I can’t even count them all. Where would I be without You?

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: (Psalm 103:2, Holy Bible, King James Version).

If the wages proposed in the same range for two or more employment sources, the benefit package could determine the applicant’s decision. Serving the Lord has more benefits than ever imagined. Health problems? Healing is available. Emotional distress? Peace is offered by the Master peace giver. Tired, hungry or thirsty? Jesus is the great supplier. He offers boundless benefits because we are more than servants. We are His children.

Prayer: Thank You Lord for every day provisions and a generous benefit package. Amen.
