I have great news for you today. God is not done blessing you!
Whatever you may be facing today, whatever issue may seem impossible, God’s promises are still true! And now is the time for God to “break loose” in your life and bring the victory you’re believing for.
This is an all-important nugget that I have discovered: Knowing and understanding the promises of God is what will move you from wishful thinking to actual Bible-faith, trusting God to do what He has said!
Wishful thinking is not based in any kind of reality. But you have something much greater to live by – FAITH – faith that God will fulfill His promises to you!
That is why throughout all of Scripture we are reminded of the promise of God’s goodness towards us. In fact, Psalms 103:2 encourages us to “…forget not all His benefits.”
Sadly, I know of many believers who are living defeated lives because they never knew or they have forgotten the covenant benefits God promised.
I’m writing you today to build your faith to expect ALL of God’s benefits in your life! Let’s look at the benefits listed in Psalm 103:
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. (Psalm 103:2-5 NKJV)
These are the covenant blessings the Psalmist listed and they belong to every covenant person: 1) Forgiveness, 2) Healing, 3) Deliverance from destruction, 4) Favor, 5) Satisfying our lives with good things, and 6) Renewed strength and vision.
I’ve noticed especially that when many people start getting older they start allowing a poverty mentality to come into their lives and they forget God’s benefits. They become fearful that they aren’t going to have enough. They don’t take care of themselves like they used to. They’re not as generous in their giving as they once were.
The truth behind this verse is that those who walk with the Lord and learn how to live in their covenant benefits will possess a spirit of vigor and will continue to soar in life just as the majestic eagle. That means to be full of energy, lively, active, and thriving! It means that we don’t have to accept the world’s mentality about getting older.
My mother-in-law is 87 years old and she still drives, mows her lawn, plants her garden, and even does repairs on her house herself. Not only that, she still goes deer hunting every year and is usually the first in the family to get a deer.
And I might add that she has confessed nearly all of her life that God renews her strength like the eagle’s! There’s not a day that goes by that she doesn’t confess this.
You’ve heard the saying, “You’re as old as you think you are.” It’s true, and maybe some of you reading this need to “break loose” from thinking old. Who said that your eyes have to grow dim when you get older? Who said your back has to ache? Who said your metabolism has to slow down? Who said your energy has to diminish?
According to Scripture, Moses’ health didn’t diminish! De#117;teronomy 34:7 tell us, “Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when he died: his eye was not dim, nor his natural force abated.” New Living Translation says, “…nor had his vitality departed.”
And doesn’t the Bible tell us that Jesus is the Mediator of an even better covenant which was established upon better promises than what Moses experienced? (Hebrews 8:6) How much more should this be working in your life? The truth is, many believers are not tapping into all that belongs to them.
