Forget not // 03-11-21

“Praise the Lord, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name. Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits…” Psalms‬ ‭103:1-2‬ ‭NIV

When I get caught up in my circumstances, when life is a struggle or there are too many other distractions or temptations, it is so easy to forget how much God loves me, to forget I’ve been forgiven, to forget I’ve been chosen for Kingdom purpose, to forget who I am in Christ, to forget what God has called me to. And when I forget that God is with me and Jesus is for me and the Holy Spirit lives within me, I can end up just reacting or making decisions based solely on how I feel in the moment, and that is a recipe for disaster, but what a difference when I remember! Let’s start this new day with a decision to praise God, to bring to mind the good things He has done, to think about His love and faithfulness, thankful for what He has provided and for the good people we have in our lives! Lord, help me to remember all Your benefits today, even in the midst of a troubled world. Amen 🙏🏼🙌🏼
