All His Benefits

Benefits list! Have you ever made one in your Christian life? It is usual for us to take note or even list the benefits we have from our jobs or careers. Financial benefits are on top of the list. When we list down benefits, we are more motivated to work. We become excited with the promising rewards we could receive.

There is some semblance of this sense of excitement and feeling of inspiration when we list the benefits we get from God. Have you ever made one? I think many of you would agree that the list would be endless. God’s blessings are just too many to count. But, if we try to list them down, much like counting our blessings, we start to feel blessed! And that’s who we really are in God, we are blessed because He blesses us with many benefits.

So, let’s not forget all the benefits we receive from God! Psalms 103 lists down all the wondrous benefits we have in God.

“Praise Yahweh, my soul! All that is within me, praise his holy name! Praise Yahweh, my soul, and don’t forget all his benefits, who forgives all your sins, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from destruction, who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, who satisfies your desire with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

– Psalms 103:1-5 (WEB)
  • God forgives our sins.
  • God redeems our life from destruction.
  • God crowns us with loving kindness and tender mercies.
  • God satisfies our desires with good things.

What else could we ask for? We have greater benefits in God than the earthly ones we have. All our sins are forgiven through Jesus Christ our Lord. What great peace and freedom that is! We are protected from destruction. God leads us to a secure, safe, and peaceful life. Who would trade this kind of life to earthly riches? We may have trials and difficulties here in this flesh, but we have great comfort that God treats us with lovingkindess and tender mercies. It is so amazing that God is rich in mercy. But it is more amazing when God’s rich mercy is also infused with tenderness. Such perfect love we experience from Him. And when we seek something in life or we desire for things in life, God don’t just put them in our lap to enjoy. Instead, He only gives us good things that could truly satisfy us. Isn’t that great wisdom and understanding? We are not to be surprised when God does not hand us everything we desire. His will is to satisfy us and that could only be done when He only gives what is good for us.

Make a short benefit list everyday. May be a 5-item list would do. What benefits from God do you have for the day? Then you can experience more joy to walk with God closely and to trust Him to take care of your needs and affairs. And most of all, it lets you remember the goodness and faithfulness of God every day.

Praise God every day and forget not His benefits!
