Bless the Lord
Psalm 103:20, 22 “Bless the Lord, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
Bless the Lord, all his works in all places of his dominion: bless the Lord, O my soul.”
And how can we bless the Lord?
Certainly with praise for all the things He has done for us.
But also by doing His commandments, as we hear the voice of His Word to us.
The Lord Jesus Christ is a King now, ruling in the circumstances of everyone’s life, whether they know it or not.
As Christians, we have the privilege of submitting to the kingdom of Christ as our king, now, and being a conductor of His power.
Obedience is required of every child of God. Believing, joyful Obedience comes easily, when He is the object of our love. (It is only when we let another take His place in our lives, that our joy is put out)
We will never have sinless perfection. But we can will with the Lord, as we walk along with Him; and be a blessing to Him.
And He can use us to be a blessing to others.
Pray for one another.
Encourage each other.
Speak of Christ, the great Shepherd of our soul. (How much we need His care for us)
As we do these things, we bless the Lord, for He loves His children and wants to see them peaceful and joyful. (And we can’t be, when we are far from Him)
We are to seek to know and do His Will for ourselves.
John 14:15 “If ye love Me, keep my commandments.”
Titus 2:13-14 “Looking for the blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ;
Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
Then we can, “Bless the Lord, O my soul.”
