So your weekend may have not been the best and you woke up all in your feelings about certain people and things in and outside of your control and you are about to succumb to these feelings ruining/running your day…This is for you:
I have learned that you cannot live a life that thrives based on
fickle emotions. Our emotions must be subjected to truth. David, in Psalm 103, commands his soul to bless the Lord in spite of the situations he was facing at present – failed marriages, adultery, murder on his hands, his own son seeking to kill him, abdication of his throne, raped daughter, a nation in turmoil…Ummm…Let’s just say that he had enough drama for a few seasons of Scandal.
There are times when the current state of your life mandates that you return to your foundation – A foundation of faith and not feeling. This is where you choose to operate and make decisions based on what you know to be true rather than what you feel at the present moment. Our emotions can be very fleeting and can be found not to be trust-worthy. It’s amazing how our feelings cloud or judgement and we must self-correct ourselves
daily, every second of the day. Diverting our attention from our present situation/emotion to God and His infinite power immediately maximizes the grandeur of God and minimizes our present circumstance. We choose to place our faith in a God that is sovereign and extremely powerful.
His loves knows no end. He is not intimidated by all that may intimidate us. We choose to believe in a God who knows our end at the very beginning. We will serve a God whose limits are limitless…..Let me say that again///
GOD’S LIMITS ARE LIMITLESS
Let David Remind Us:
Psalm 103 – ESV
1.Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6 The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 He will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13 As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.
17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,
18 to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
21 Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
his ministers, who do his will!
22 Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!
So you can’t remember nor recite Psalm 103, Here is the tweet of the day:
REPEAT AFTER ME:
‘God is my Lord and He will have the best of me.
So soul, it is time for you to get out of your funk and
Bless The Lord.
