PSALM 103:1-5

Psalms 103:1-5

1. Praise the Lord and count your blessings (vv. 1-2)

Psalm 103:1-2

David realized how good God had been and how undeserving he was of all these blessings. 

This was a song of praise. David sang it with joy and with a deep desire to let God and all else who could hear know just how much he really wanted God to receive praise and glory. 

Psalm 34:1-12 

Psalm 66:1-4: 

Psalm 81, 92, and many, many others are songs of praise to the Lord.

2. Life in relationship with God is whole and healthy (v. 3)

Psalm 103:3

Verse 3b - who heals all your diseases 

James 5:14-15

Does the soul have diseases? Indeed it does. Fear, doubt, depression, anger, lust, hate jealously, pride, greed . . . the list goes on and on. 

Psalm 147:3 

3. Life in relationship with God is meaningful (vv. 4-5)

Psalm 1034-5

How many people waste the years of their lives on things that, in the long run, really don't count? 

God gives His people purpose in living. He gives us meaning. He keeps our lives from going to waste. Our lives are lived with eternal purpose. 

Verse 5: He satisfies your mouth

Here are six practical suggestions to consider as you praise the Lord.

  1. Be aware

  3. Be grateful 
  4. Be vocal 
  5. Be natural

How about you? Are you living a life in relationship with God?

How do you praise him? 

Isaiah 29:13 

When was the last time you stopped to consider all His benefits? Do you enjoy those benefits? Have you ever experienced forgiveness? Are you living a meaningful life, a satisfied life? Does your soul have diseases that need to be healed? Are you living with an eternal purpose?
