“My soul, praise the LORD, and do not forget all His benefits.” Psalm 103:2 (HCSB)
We are told to forget not the benefits of God! In other words, these benefits can be missed if we’re not careful. These “benefits” are for now. They are not something that we must wait till we are in heaven to receive. In fact, they won’t even matter then. Jesus Himself said that He came to give life and life abundantly (John 10:10). Yes, He came to make a way for us to have eternal life, but that life was to start the moment we were born again, not after we die! John told us that he who has the Son has life, and those who don’t have the Son don’t have life (1 John 5:12).
Consider these benefits that David refers to…
“He forgives all your sin; He heals all your diseases. He redeems your life from the Pit; He crowns you with faithful love and compassion. He satisfies you with goodness; your youth is renewed like the eagle.” Psalm 103:3-5 (HCSB)
His forgiveness, His healing, His complete freedom from demonic oppression, His compassion and love, His goodness and our youthfulness being restored is for today! Where the enemy comes to kill, steal and destroy, Jesus comes to give us life here and now (John 10:10). Let’s turn this into a prayerful declaration over your life!
I declare that with long life You, the LORD God Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth, will satisfy me and show me Your salvation (Psalm 91:16), which includes all the benefits of knowing You. You forgive, cleanse and remove ALL my sin, transgressions and iniquities; You heal ALL my sickness, disease and infirmity; You deliver, rescue and give me complete victory over ALL demonic oppression; You crown me with Your love and compassion; You release Your goodness in my life; and You restore my youthfulness. I rest in the complete atonement of Jesus Christ; His finished work and shed blood on the cross. Thank You LORD, that as I wait on You, trust You and walk in You, You will restore my youth, and I will soar on eagles wings (Isaiah 40:30-31). May I walk in the life and benefits that You have provided for me, today! In Jesus’ amazing, life-giving name, amen!!!
Feel free to pray and stand on this promise for your life, daily! The enemy, who is a liar does not want you to walk in this level of victory, but for you to limp through this life not recognizing the benefits that have been provided for you through Jesus Christ! But you have been called to be an overcomer (Romans 8:37), on this planet, in this life, now!
