Forget Not All His Benefits


In Psalm 103, David praises the Lord for all that He has done and calls upon the people of God to “forget not all His benefits” (103:2). While it would be quite impossible to list “all His benefits,” David begins to enumerate how God “forgives… heals… redeems… crowns… satisfies” (103:2-5).

He explains how “the Lord executes righteousness…made known His ways…is merciful and gracious…has compassion on those who fear Him” (103:6-13).

When you think of “all His benefits,” it is easy to focus on what the Lord does and has done. But, what about what He has not done? A favorite part of this psalm is when David exclaims, “He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities” (103:10). When you are counting your blessings, don’t just list all the great things that God gives you. Count all of the things that you deserve as a sinner but God has withheld from you through His mercy, grace and compassion! Friends, let’s not forget all His benefits!
