For someone out there needing to know God is with you no matter your situation. Let’s worship together and tell your soul “Bless the Lord O My Soul” no matter what.
This beautiful song comes from various places, including Psalm 103. Please read below.
What’s the key to joy amidst pain? Gratitude.
Notice how many times King David expresses gratitude. This is our victory, praise while in the gutter. Bless him now because:
1. He forgives all your sins
2. He heals all your diseases
3. He redeems you from the pit
4. He crowns you with love and compassion
5. He satisfies your desires with good things
6. He renews our strength and youth
I also love the posture and direction of this song. It’s not “I will bless the Lord”, or “God is worthy to be praised”, all true things.
It’s a little talking to yourself “Bless the Lord O David!” “Bless the Lord O Sharon” Why? Because He has done amazing things.
This is true worship.
1 Praise the Lord, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2 Praise the Lord, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
5 who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
