THE “FORGET NOT HIS BENEFITS” SPIRITUAL CHALLENGE
Today will be a short blog as God gave me a prophetic word for you and I don’t want to add anything to it:
The Spirit says to you that today is the first day of the rest of your life! Forgetting all that lies behind I press forward to what lies ahead! For the past is not an indicator of your future, if you choose to leave it behind. Quit looking in the rear view mirror. Your best days are ahead of you, as you choose to consult God and are obedient to His will and ways. His direction is where your success lies. Give heed to His Word today and you will see a bright new way. It is your choice, says the Lord of Hosts.
Philippians 3:13-14 Amplified Bible (AMP)
13 [a]Brothers and sisters, I do not consider that I have made it my own yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on toward the goal to win the [heavenly] prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
Remember to read Psalms 103:1-5 out loud and meditate on it daily. We are endeavoring to find out if we can exhaust the subject of Psalm 103:1-5 by finding and forgetting not all of God’s benefits. I am pretty sure it would take a lifetime. We will keep on going until we exhaust the subject or God says it is time to stop.
[A Psalm] of David.
1 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul; and all that is [deepest] within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul, and forget not [one of] all His benefits—
3 Who forgives [every one of] all your iniquities, Who heals [each one of] all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from the pit and corruption, Who beautifies, dignifies, and crowns you with loving-kindness and tender mercy;
5 Who satisfies your mouth [your necessity and desire at your personal age and situation] with good so that your youth, renewed, is like the eagle’s [strong, overcoming, soaring]!
