1 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! 2 Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:1-5, ESV)
How’s that for a benefit package? Forgiveness. Healing. Redemption. A Crown. Renewed Youth. Satisfaction Guaranteed.
Prayer: Lord, I praise you for your mercy extended to me.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. (Matthew 5:6, ESV)
Hungry? Thirst? Those first few weeks of more of Operation Iraqi Freedom when they were working to get food and fresh water supplies to the troops, I bet plenty knew hunger and thirst during those days. Ever hunger and thirst after God? Do you know what it is like to long for what is right? Do you desire to be morally upright and without sin? Guess what? You’ve come to the right place, if you’ve come to God to fill that need.
Prayer: Lord, satisfy the longing within my heart.
