“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 loving kindness and tender mercies,

  Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

  So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”  

  Psalm 103:2-5          

     What a comforting passage!  This is a Psalm of praise, as you can plainly see.  “But wait a minute!”  You may be saying, “He hasn’t healed all my diseases/illnesses/ailments!”
 
     There are two ways to look at that. 

1.  Any illness healed does come from Him – He is the giver of every good and perfect gift, and the Great Physician. 

2.  To the believer, He has healed your sin sickness through sanctification.  And that is a far greater need than physical healing, for with sanctification comes eternal life. 

 

     This is a passage about more than just physical needs.  This Scripture speaks of the rich benefits of the abundant life in Christ.  Bless the Lord, O my soul
 
     These benefits cover the normal progression of the sin sickened soul.
 
     First, He forgives all our sins, when we accept Him as Lord and Savior of our lives.  But He doesn’t stop there, for He knows that the sin-disease is serious.  It leaves destruction in its wake.  He heals us from our disease ridden souls by giving us victory over our sin.  It may take time, it may take struggles, it will surely take patience, but He does bring healing through victory!

     Think of it – we are not only redeemed from destruction and hell, but we are crowned with loving kindness and tender mercies!  God is tender with us, as with a little child.  Don’t we cherish our own little ones?  Our Father does us, as well.


     Satisfying our mouths with good things; Only God can truly satiate a soul with His ways, His Word, His pleasures, and His rest.  There is only one thing in this life that can satisfy and satisfy well, and that is a walk with our Creator.  His peace that passes all understanding is beyond all comprehension and the fruits of the Spirit – such as love, joy, peace – are all “good things” that come from our relationship with God.  We are so blessed!

     Ever wonder why the eagle is always paired with youth in the Scriptures?

     “The eagle is long-lived, and as naturalists say, when she is nearly 100 years old, casts all her feathers (as indeed she changes them in a great measure every year at molting time) and fresh ones come, so that she becomes young again.  When God, by the graces and comforts of His Spirit, recovers His people from their decays, and fills them with new life and joy, which is to them an earnest of eternal life and joy, then they may be said to ‘return to the days of their youth’ (Job 33:23)”  (Matthew Henry Commentary of the Whole Bible)

     God gives us renewed spiritual youth, and eternal life leads to eternal youth.  Praise the Lord! 

   

“I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen:  not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.” C. S. Lewis


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 loving kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”  Psalm 103:2-5, ESV
