Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
Remembering all the benefits of salvation will yield heartfelt praise. After David said he would bless God will his entire being, David goes on to say do not forget all God’s benefits. What are some of the benefits of being in Christ? In Christ we are free from the penalty of sin, we have new life through Christ, and access to every spiritual blessing. These are just a few.
When you think about all you have access to in the Lord; praise should be the natural outpouring of your heart. No matter what else is going on. No matter where you are. Remembering God’s abundant goodness towards you should yield praise! What are some of the benefits you have received from God? If you are honest with yourself there are too many to keep track of. Praising Jesus may not change the circumstance, but praise will change your outlook. So remember all the benefits of being in Christ and bless the Lord with all that is within you!
