Psalm 68:19 Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation.
Psalm 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget
not all his benefits:
Psalm 116:12 What shall I render unto the LORD for all his benefits toward
Here the Psalmist is focusing on the many benefits that come to us in serving the Lord. In
the first verse here we are reminded that the Lord daily loadeth us. Whatever we face in our lives the God of our salvation
provides in a supernatural way. His plan for us is always good. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for
good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
verse reminds us not to forget. God in his eternal wisdom knows us well. We have a tendency to forget. Yesterday we appreciated
the benefits but this is another day. How soon we forget.
The last verse talks about the true
motivation of the believer. We love Him because He first loved us. It is important that we look for opportunities to render
to the Lord acts of thanksgiving for all He has done.
