Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. (Psalm 103:2)
As we prepare to praise the beautiful name of Jesus, my heart is filled with warmth. My soul is running over with adoration for him. The thoughts of eternal habitation in the new heavens and new earth, overwhelms all of this life's burdens. Just think for a moment; no more pain, no more sorrows, all tears will be wiped from our eyes by none other than the hand of God himself! There is still more. We are advised to not forget all his benefits. With this expression of love, Father God reveals that he intends to fully give us the kingdom; not only on that day, but in this world!
The words, "only believe," will ignite the path and secure the blessings. Praise the Lord!
