Message for June 9, 2019 from Pastor Shirley

      Psalm 68:19 “Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation”.
      Psalm 103:2-5 “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 loving kindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s”

     In Psalm 103 David  talks to his own soul and reminds himself to “bless the Lord” and “forget not all his benefits.  Hebrew meaning of forget is, “to be oblivious of from want of memory or attention.” There are days I just wake up and head out and go about my day. It is easy to get stuck in the same old routine of life.

      The Hebrew word benefits means, “to treat well.”  The God of our salvation desires to treat us well.  Well means, healthy, glowing, fine sound, thriving, increase”.  Believe, look, expect, the blessings of the Lord in your life every day and rejoice in the God of your salvation.

      Let’s start our day with confessing, “I am going to look for the load of benefits which the Lord has promised me. Not only am I going to look for them I am going to expect them!
