Devotion: Benefits of Following God

🙏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. –Psalm 103:2-5 (NKJV)

In work and in life, we assess the benefits of financial outlays,
activities and ways we expend our time and efforts. In this passage,
the Psalmist lists benefits of serving God.

He forgives.
He heals.
He redeems our lives.
He shows mercy.
He loves us.
He provides good things.
Renews our hearts and minds as we trust Him.

What better time to give thanks to our Creator and Savior than today!

Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures
forever. –1 Chronicles 16:34 (NKJV)
