Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 01/16/11

This week’s scripture is from Psalms:

Praise the LORD, O my soul;
       all my inmost being, praise his holy name.

Praise the LORD, O my soul,
       and forget not all his benefits–

who forgives all your sins
       and heals all your diseases,

who redeems your life from the pit
       and crowns you with love and compassion…   
(Psalm 103:1-4)

These days we seem to be engaged continually in spiritual warfare, and casualties abound. Though we may despair and our hearts fail within us, the Lord is there. Praise God Almighty. When deep calls out to deep, when our soul cries out to Him, He is there. Praise his holy name. When darkness, sin, or disease comes again us, when the mouth of the pit looms before us, He is there. Praise the Lord. Praise the Lord who wraps us in His love and ever-lasting kindness, for He is our redeemer and our salvation.  Praise his holy name.

May the Lord of life and all goodness bless you as you praise his holy name.
