No matter what we face today, we must remember one word. Redeemed.
David tells us in Psalm 103:4 to praise the Lord with our souls because God has redeemed our lives from the pit and crowned us with love and compassion.
Which pits did the Lord redeemed (saved) you from? Was it sickness, depression, fear, poverty, bitterness, hatred, loneliness, fornication, low self-esteem, failure, or death?
“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name” (Psalm 103:1, NIV).
Let us praise Him and not forget all His benefits. He forgave us. He healed our diseases. Then He sent His only Son, Jesus, to redeem our lives from the pit. And once we were redeemed, God crowned us with love and compassion, satisfying our lives with good things.
And if that was not enough, He renewed your youth, and my youth, like the eagle’s. Now we can fly high like the eagles, soaring above carnality (our flesh) and living in righteousness (the Spirit).
Rejoice, for “The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed” (verse 6).
You are no longer oppressed. Jesus endured our oppressions on the cross thousands of years ago.
The Lord is sending justice our way, and He will repay (restore and redeem) us for all the years the great locusts have eaten up (Joel 2:25).
Bless the Lord, O my soul. He has redeemed my life from the pit!
