Hello, saints! It’s Day 21 of the 40-day Sword Training Challenge. Today’s readings are Psalm 101-105 and Proverbs 21. Great scriptures, as always, but today I want to talk about Psalm 103:2.
Psalm 103:2 says, “Praise the Lord, my soul, and forget not all his benefits”.
I’m reminded of the old song we sang when I was a kid. It was called, “Count Your Blessings.” Listen to it here. It’s a great song of encouragement.
I challenge you to take some time to write down the blessings that you have received from the Lord. I’m not talking about just the big stuff. You may find, as you really reflect on it, that the Lord has blessed you in several small ways that you may have overlooked. I did this exercise once many years ago. At the end of each day, I would reflect on the day and write down any good thing that happened. I was really surprised to see the length of my notes after only one week. Remember the Psalm a few days ago which stated that God “daily loads us with benefits”. Count your many blessings and see what God has done.
May the Lord bless you and keep you, my friends!
