Despite all the chaos of the past two years, Americans continue to consume, albeit mostly with online purchases. Before most buy they study the benefits of a product and read the reviews. Psalm 103 offers everything you need to know about a relationship with the Lord God Almighty. He gets rave reviews.
King David for one sings his praises in his submittal.
“He pardons all your iniquities. He heals all your diseases. He redeems your life from the pit. He crowns you with lovingkindness and compassion. He satisfies your years with good things. He performs righteous deeds and judgments for all who are oppressed. He’s compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
“He will not always strive with us. He will not keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For those who fear Him, as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Moreover, He has compassion on those who fear Him as a father has compassion on his children.”
All this (and there’s even more to tell) comes in the package, and these mercies are new every morning! (Lamentations 3:23) No wonder David begins his review with this.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits. Psalm 103:1-2
He’s worth every penny He spent to redeem us.
