Easter · Praise · Psalm 103

psalm 103… an Easter perspective… the beginning…

The Easter devotional shared… sprung forth from Psalm 103…

Feeling led to explore… spend some time in Psalm 103… from an Easter perspective…

We’ll see where it goes… but today… we begin… at the beginning…

Praise the Lord, O my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits…
Psalm 103:1-2
Some days… some seasons…
we need to stir up our souls…
to praise His holy name…
Some days… some seasons…
we need to remind ourselves…
of ALL His benefits…
All His benefits…
come to fruition…
in Jesus…
His life…
His death…
His resurrection…
The greatest benefits anyone could receive…!
A life lived to reveal… the Word made flesh…
the heart of God lived out…
for all to see…
A death… died once and for all…
the perfect sacrifice…
the Lamb of God…
atoning for the sins of the world…
A resurrection… new life… eternal life…
a Way offered to those who believe…
to receive forgiveness… redemption… renewal…
an escape from what we deserve… death…
Just look to Jesus…
and the culmination of His gospel…
all wrapped up in Easter…
That will stir a soul to praise…
and remember ALL His benefits…
Take a moment to stir up your soul…
remind self of His benefits…
offer a prayer… or song… of praise…
to the One who lived…
died…
rose…
to the One who will come again…
Lord… some days… You know… it’s hard for the flesh to praise Your holy name… Open my heart and eyes… to the truth of the gospel… that I might be stirred to praise You… no matter what season… or day…
