Message for March 23, 2014 from Pastor Shirley

Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Psalm 68:19

   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. Pslam 103:2-5

   He says to us that not only I am the God of your salvation, I have rescued you and now I want to load you daily with my benefits. He started out with the greatest blessing by reminding us that he is the God of our salvation. He purchased our salvation on the cross by the precious blood of His Son Jesus Christ. And then to add to all of that He says, I also want to daily load you with benefits. God could very easily have stopped at salvation. We don’t even deserve that much. The grace and mercy of God continues every day to give us that which we don’t deserve.

   Psalms 103:2 tells us not to forget all His benefits. Hebrew meaning of forget is, “to be oblivious of from want of memory or attention.”

   Most days I just wake up and head out and go about my day. We are creatures of habit and it is easy to get stuck in the same ole same ole. I don’t know about you I sometimes miss seeing these benefits in my daily life. And sometimes I forget that my God wants to bless me every day.

   Just because I am not aware are these benefits still there? Absolutely yes! God tells us that He daily wants to load us with benefits. Every day God wants to be a part of your life and bless you and load you with benefits. Let us begin to start our day with a new way of thinking. Instead of going into our day thinking, I will just get through my day and do what needs to be done. Start your 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.

   The Hebrew word benefits means, “to treat well.” The God of our salvation desires to treat us well. Well means, healthly, 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!!!
