Being a Christian does not mean we will have an easy trouble-free life, but it does mean that we have a God who forgives us and is always with us! David went through many troubles in his life, he was far from a perfect man but knew what it felt like to have God forgive a heavy load of sin. The first part of Psalm 103 reminds us of what the Lord does for us!
While you read through this encouraging psalm of David focus on the words and how you can live a life of praise to God.
A psalm of David.
1 I will praise the Lord.
Deep down inside me, I will praise him.
I will praise him, because his name is holy.
2 I will praise the Lord.
I won’t forget anything he does for me.
3 He forgives all my sins.
He heals all my sicknesses.
4 He saves my life from going down into the grave.
His faithful and tender love makes me feel like a king.
5 He satisfies me with the good things I desire.
Then I feel young and strong again, just like an eagle. (NIRV)
Isn't it wonderful to think about how much God does for us! I encourage you to read the rest of Psalm 103 when you have a minute. It contains so much truth about who God is and the many blessings He gives us! You can read the whole chapter here Psalm 103
