THE LORD MADE US AND WE BELONG TO HIM!
“Know that the LORD, HE IS GOD! It is HE WHO MADE US, and WE ARE HIS; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.” (Psa. 100:3) [We belong to our Abba Father, he formed us and breathed His breath into us to make us living souls, His living souls, His children. We are so very special to Him that even in our disobedience, He gave His one and only begotten son to die so we could be redeemed!] “Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name! For the LORD is good; HIS STEADFAST LOVE ENDURES FOREVER, and his faithfulness to all generations.” (Psa. 100:4-5) [Thank you Abba Father for loving us through all we have been through, you have proven your steadfast love over and over again!] “I will sing of steadfast love and justice; to you, O LORD…I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me. A perverse heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil.” (Psa. 101:1-4) [Oh how we need to strive to make our lives pleasing to the Lord for He has given His all for us!] “Bless the LORD, O my soul, and ALL THAT IS WITHIN ME, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, WHO CROWNS YOU WITH STEADFAST LOVE AND MERCY, who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.” (Psa. 103:1-5) [You are such an awesome God, Abba Father, help us today to have refreshed and renewed love and devotion for you!] “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, SO GREAT IS HIS STEADFAST LOVE TOWARD THOSE WHO FEAR HIM; as far as the east is from the west, SO FAR DOES HE REMOVE OUR TRANSGRESSIONS FROM US. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; HE REMEMBERS THAT WE ARE DUST.” (Psa. 103:11-14) [God formed us from the dust of the earth and made us to become as He is!] “May the glory of the LORD endure forever; may the LORD rejoice in his works…I WILL SING TO THE LORD AS LONG AS I LIVE; I will sing praise to my God while I have being. May my meditation be pleasing to him, for I REJOICE IN THE LORD.” (Psa. 104:31-34)
Be blessed as you praise the Lord knowing that He REMOVED OUR TRANSGRESSIONS FROM US, AS FAR AS THE EAST IS FROM THE WEST!
