Praise the Lord!

I am stuck. I have been stuck around Psalm 100 for quite some time now. Any of the Psalms between 90-110 are fair game and it seems as though I can’t get enough of these rich, worship-filled Psalms of praise. Consider the first five verses of Psalm 103. “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 – who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion, who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” These verses are a spiritual feast for the hungry. As I read these words, I can’t help but say YES! YES! YES! YES! What the believer has in Christ is truly incredible and these words of David remind us of all those blessings. On top of that, we are reminded that the proper response to God’s amazing work in our lives is heartfelt praise and worship of the Triune God. This is why I’ve had to park myself in this part of the Scriptures for the past few days. Of course, all the Psalms and all the Scriptures satisfy our spiritual hunger, but there are times where we park ourselves in a particular portion of the Scriptures for a time and just dwell there. It is amazing to think that we will never exhaust or master the content of the Scriptures. Each visit has the potential of new insights and of refreshing the soul like never before. Wherever you’re at in the Word, dwell, feast and enjoy! “Praise the Lord, O my soul.”
