PSALMS 103: 1 – 5…
These verses have given me great comfort and given me every reason to praise the Lord!.
Perhaps you have a familiarity with this passage or have heard the term “Bless the Lord, Oh my soul,” in a Matt Redman song. No matter what the case, let’s dive into what this verse means and why our souls should bless God today.
What Does “Bless the Lord, Oh My Soul” (Psalm 103:1-2) Mean?
This Psalm, written by David commands believers to bless God. He gives several reasons throughout the chapter for why we should lift up our praise to the Lord. Certain translations refer to these reasons as benefits.
First and foremost, we praise God because he forgives our sins. God’s forgiveness doesn’t just appear in the New Testament. He exercised grace and compassion in the Old Testament as well.
Secondly, God heals our diseases. Although God doesn’t heal us every time—as we may be thinking of a loved one we prayed for fervently who didn’t see healing—but he ultimately heals us of the disease of sin.
Thirdly, God “redeems (our) lives from the pit.” He carries us out of darkness, into his wonderful light. He does not allow us to stay down forever, and in our darkest moments, he dwells with us.
Fourthly, he “crowns” us with loving-kindness and compassion. God’s anger relents. We may think, “Oh, God is so full of wrath.” But the Bible shows that time and time again he gives us second chances.
Fifthly, he satisfies our years with good things. We realize that God has given us a wonderful and beautiful life when we recognize the wonderful people and things he has introduced into our lives.
Finally, he renews our youth like the eagle. Although age and ailments set in, God renews our strength and we know that we will experience a new body one day.
We bless the Lord because He has come through for us time and time again!.
