Message of the Day: An Inward Call to Praise for God’s Love and Compassion

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
..” (Psalm 103:1-2, NKJV)

Psalm 103 is a song of joyous praise, in which David rises from a thankful acknowledgement of personal blessings to a lively celebration of God’s gracious attributes, as not only intrinsically worthy of praise, but as specially suited to man’s frailty. It is a psalm of inimitable sweetness and excellence; it contains the most affectionate sentiments of gratitude to God for his mercies; and the most consoling motives to continue to trust in God, and be obedient. He concludes by invoking all creatures to unite in his song.

Realizing how easily people forget God, David reminds himself of the many blessings, physical and spiritual, that God has given him. Gratefully, he praises God for them all. He forcefully calls on his soul, and all his faculties and powers, to magnify God for his mercies, love and compassion. Under such a weight of obligation the lips can do little; the soul and all its powers must be engaged. It is thus, an inward call to praise.

God is worthy of all our praise and adoration which our entire being can render. No one of our faculties or powers should be exempt from the duty and the privilege of praise.
