Giving Thanks To The Lord Who Is The Source Of All Blessings (Psalm 103)
This Psalm of David, the 103rd Psalm, is full of thanksgiving to God. The word “bless” means to kneel, to adore. Often, we think of “blessings” flowing from a higher authority or sovereign power to the subjects. But it can also come from a subordinate to a superior being. In this Psalm, it is humankind worshipping and giving thanks to the Almighty God.
David was praising and blessing the Lord for His salvation and redemption. Even though Jesus Christ has yet to come through David’s lineage when this Psalm was written, David expressed his praise and worship to the coming Promised Messiah!
The benefits of the Lord are manifold – salvation, healing, deliverance, gifts of the Holy Spirit, and every spiritual and physical provision. Through the cross, Jesus is the source of all blessings and benefits we need in life.
