Some Reflections on Psalm 103

“Praise the Lord….” Yes!

“Forget not ALL his benefits.” There are many and many are listed in this Psalm.

“…who heals all your diseases.” Really? Doesn’t seem like it. My mom wasn’t healed…on this earth. But ultimately for the Jesus follower we are healed with the gift of a new body.

“…who satisfies your desires with good things.” God does want good things for us and to be happy. But happiness is not God’s ultimate desire for us…it’s holiness which will bring true joy.

“He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever.” God does get angry. But not like some imagine. It’s more like a good parent’s anger that comes with true love.
