October 5

“Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits— who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,”  Psalm 103:2-3 (NIV)

In the Psalms we often find the writer talking to himself. This verse is like that when David is addressing himself. These words remind us that we have much for which to thank the Lord. We need to remember how much God has done for us. I am thinking especially today of the word “benefit.” Sometimes we call attention to the meaning of a word in the original. This time we are not thinking of the Hebrew word but of the English word “benefit.” This English word is made up of two Latin words GOOD and TO DO. So the benefits of God are the GOOD things He HAS DONE for us. Let us think of all the good things He has done for us and what He wants to do for us, and then say “Praise the Lord” as David did.
