Psalm 103: 1-5
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 forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagles.
Have you ever considered that you can bless The Creator? So often the focus of blessing is on the one created. However, it’s also very clear in scripture that the creature can bless The Creator.
God bestows His blessing to His people in many forms; temporal or spiritual. We can look around or within and experience the goodness of God all around us and in our personal lives. He is a God that blesses. Likewise, He has allowed us the ability to bless.
To bless is to declare a person endowed with power for success, prosperity and much more.
We can invoke blessings upon ourselves by appropriating His Word in our lives. We can bless others by expressing good wishes or offering prayer to God for prosperity in various areas of their lives. But today also be aware that we can bless the Lord. How enriched our lives will be if daily we exercise our ability to bless the Lord.
God said to Abraham in Genesis 12:2; "I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” Today, you have the ability to bless. Today you are blessed of God so operate in your ability to be a blessing and bless. Also remember that you can open your mouth and from your heart say like the Psalmist in Psalm 34; “I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.”
Prayer: Father, today I bless You for who You are. I bless You today and all the days of my life. With all that is within me, I bless Your holy name. You are good. You have blessed me with loving kindness and tender mercies. Daily You load me with benefits and satisfy my mouth with good things. For all Your goodness, mercies and benefits, I bless You Lord.
