It’s Yours

Good Morning.  Here’s Today’s Nugget to chew on:

“It’s Yours”

Psalm 103:1-5 King James Version (KJV)

1 Bless the Lord, O my soul [mind, will & emotions]: and all that is within me [example, heart, lungs, kidneys, colon, blood, eyes, brain…], bless his holy name [yes, you tell it to bless the Lord and it does that by functioning in the perfect God created it to function].

2 Bless the Lord, O my soul [mind, will & emotions], and forget not all his benefits:

3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities [sins]; who healeth all thy diseases;

4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;

5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Further Thought:  Today’s passage is a familiar passage and a reminder of what belongs to every believer.  However, we have to exercise our authority by speaking to our soul and all that is within us to follow the example of David in today’s passage.  Remember, these are benefits.  Now, it’s up to you and me as believers to decide whether we will use each of the benefits contained in God’s Word that belong to us.  As I continue to read and meditate upon God’s Word, I think we may be making receiving from God harder than it should be. 

Today’s passage in verse 3 says that all our sins and diseases have already been taken care of.  So what’s the problem?  As we discussed in yesterday’s nugget, we now have to labor to rest in the settled fact that all our sins (past, present, and future) are already forgiven.  And healing has already been provided for whatever disease we have or will have.  And the same applies to the benefits in verses 4 and 5 above. So, if we miss the mark, all we have to do is acknowledge our sin and cash in on our benefit.  If we are sick, we use our authority according to Isaiah 54:17 and Mark 11:23 and cash in on our healing benefit.  Now, you must receive the benefit regardless of how you feel or what the doctor’s report says.  Remember that Mark 11:23 says you “shall” [not might] have whatsoever you say that you believe you receiveNote:  All the benefits of the Kingdom of God contained in the Word of God [Bible] must be used on earth.  So, why not take advantage of what belongs to you?

Have a great day, and keep chewing on God’s Word.
