Today’s PrayerPoint ~ Psalm 103
“Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise is holy name. Praise the Lord, O my soul and forget not all his benefits.
He forgives all my sins and heals all my diseases; he redeems my life from the pit and crowns me with love and compassion.
He satisfies my desires with good things, so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” Psalm 103:1-5
When I am struggling — and there always seems to be some sort of thing I dread that is coming up — it is really important for me to focus on praising and thanking God for what He has done and recalling those things. Reminding myself of God’s provision in my life is so important..sometimes I have a crazy short-term memory!
I also think it is helpful to encourage others when they struggle to remember. There are times when life is hard and there seems to be no good choice out there. Remembering that God goes before and behind me and hems me in is sometimes hard when I am caught up in a moment (or days) of discouragement.
“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.” 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Is there someone in your life who can use some encouragement today?
