A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's”
When I read this comentary on these verses I thought it was so good I wanted to share it with you so here goes:
“What an enumeration of divine blessings this is! Any one of them is worth more than all earth's treasures combined!If we are not forgiven—we must rest forever under the burden of sin, a weight greater than all the Alps! But God forgives all our sins.If we are not healed—we must be sick forever, sick with the plague and leprosy of sin! But God heals—and heals all our evils, and heals completely! If we are not saved from the dangers of this ensnaring world—we never can reach heaven! But God keeps, rescues, and saves our life from all impending destructions!Earth's crowns are made of thorns, and at the best are only what the children call, 'play-crowns', for they are but of leaves that wither, or of gold and gems that will not last. But God crowns His people with crowns of love and compassion, which are real and radiant, which shall never fade—but shall shine forever, becoming crowns of eternal life and glory in heaven!This world cannot satisfy a heart's deepest cravings. Its possessions only make the hunger more intense! But God satisfies the souls of His people, and meets all their cravings and hungers with truly good and eternal realities!”
You cannot beat what the Lord does for His children.Do you belong to Him?
God says “My kindness shall never depart from you.”
