Title: Six Benefits of God’s Favor

Scripture: Psalm 103:2–6

2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, 3 who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, 4 who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy, 5 who satisfies you with good so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. 6 The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.”

Main Idea: God expresses his favor to us in six beneficial ways: forgiveness, healing, resurrection from the grave, the honor of receiving his steadfast love and mercy, the satisfaction that comes from enjoying good things in this world, and justice when oppressed.

For Hungry Readers: These are not the only benefits with which God favors us, but they are on any list of the most important things God does for us. Without his forgiveness, you have no peace or relationship with God. Without healing, you hurt. Without resurrection, you have no body and no hope. Without his steadfast love, life is empty. Without the good things he creates, life is grim. And without justice, you are bitter.

Faith Declarations: God gives me everything I need. Bless the Lord for his benefits!
