Psalm 103

Psalm 103 (NLT)

A psalm of David.
 1 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
      with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
 2 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
      may I never forget the good things he does for me.
 3 He forgives all my sins
      and heals all my diseases.
 4 He redeems me from death
      and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
 5 He fills my life with good things.
      My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!  6 The Lord gives righteousness
      and justice to all who are treated unfairly.
 7 He revealed his character to Moses
      and his deeds to the people of Israel.
 8 The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
      slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.
 9 He will not constantly accuse us,
      nor remain angry forever.
 10 He does not punish us for all our sins;
      he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
 11 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
      is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
 12 He has removed our sins as far from us
      as the east is from the west.
 13 The Lord is like a father to his children,
      tender and compassionate to those who fear him.
 14 For he knows how weak we are;
      he remembers we are only dust.
 15 Our days on earth are like grass;
      like wildflowers, we bloom and die.
 16 The wind blows, and we are gone—
      as though we had never been here.
 17 But the love of the Lord remains forever
      with those who fear him.
   His salvation extends to the children’s children
    18 of those who are faithful to his covenant,
      of those who obey his commandments!
 19 The Lord has made the heavens his throne;
      from there he rules over everything.
 20 Praise the Lord, you angels,
      you mighty ones who carry out his plans,
      listening for each of his commands.
 21 Yes, praise the Lord, you armies of angels
      who serve him and do his will!
 22 Praise the Lord, everything he has created,
      everything in all his kingdom.
   Let all that I am praise the Lord.

David was so good at praising the LORD no matter what his circumstance was. I love this Psalm because it serves as a reminder for me of all the things the LORD has done for me. I have much to be thankful of and to praise HIM for! Sometimes I have a hard time remembering that. Thank YOU LORD for helping me to remember!!

Hi Chelle. The thing I like about David is he stuffed up big and often but he always humbled himself and got back on track asap. He had a teachable spirit and knew God loved him no matter what.
God bless
