God’s Benefits

Dear Friends,
Today I want to encourage you to learn about the benefits that God has provided for you. Read today’s devotional and thank God for the wonderful benefits that you can enjoy when you walk with Him every day of your life. Enjoy!

Know Your Benefits
Psalm 103:1-5 (NKJV)

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 iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
Who satisfies your mouth with good things,
So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Nowadays, companies strive to offer great benefits to their employees. Yet nothing compares to the benefits we have for being children of God. Psalm 103 gives us examples of those benefits. But how do we obtain them?

We seek God first—above all things (Matthew 6:33 NLT)
We accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior (John 3:16, Romans 10:10 NLT)
We believe and accept all of His promises. We appropriate them by faith and we live by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7 NLT).

Knowing who we are in Christ and that we are God’s precious children is a revelation that we must obtain. Once we have that revelation in our hearts we can be successful in every area of our lives—both at work and at home. Therefore, know your benefits and thank God for them.
