Bless the Lord
Text: Psalm 103:19-22
Bless the Lord! I don’t bless Him when my past sin haunts me. Honestly why would we think to praise, thank or bless anyone when something so hurtful comes up? What I have learned different about this situation with the Lord though is this; when a hurtful past mistake or what we have been calling haunting sins in this study come back to bite us in the butt, we can see His hand of grace in it all.
You see, while there are always consequences for our sinful choices and acts, God is the only one who has forgiven and forgotten them. When they come back to haunt, He obviously remembers what situation brought this upon us, but He has never once held it against us and He is always FOR US! So when the whole world can seem as if they are against us and be appalled by the past choice we made, our God stands in our defense! He has forgiven us already and He will fight for us! We must remember to bless Him for this undeserved action. Because that is exactly what it is, undeserved!
