Many times when people are considering a new job, they ask about the benefits. Is there health insurance, life insurance or some kind of retirement plan in the pay package? God has a benefits package too. It is partially outlined in Psalm 103.
God forgives all our sins, heals all our diseases and redeems our life from the pit. He crowns us with love and compassion like a father. As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love. He satisfies our desires with good things. He renews our youth like the eagle's.
If we are oppressed, he works righteousness and justice for us. He is slow to anger. When he is angry, he won't stay that way forever.
He knows how he formed us, that we were made from dust. He knows that our days are short, but he remembers us and loves us forever and ever.
For reflection: Let us be thankful today that God made us, that he knows us completely, and that he loves us.
Let us pray. Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. (Psalm 103: 1-2)
I started this website and blog on May 1, 2012. I am a Catholic who has been in ministry for many years. I first developed what I would call a close relationship with Jesus in the early 1970s. Ever since then I have been praying with people for healing and other needs. It is because I have seen so many of these prayers answered that I am so bold as to offer to pray for you individually through this website and phone line.
