Have you ever watched a miracle happen before your eyes? I have after praying the benefits of Psalm 103 over a woman at my church.

I had a member of one of the churches I pastored in the past call me because his wife was in the hospital dying of cancer and the doctors had said to call the family because she was going.

I went to the hospital and found all the family gathered around and she was pale grey. It was evident that it would only be a matter of a short time.

I prayed for her, and the words just dribbled from my lips. I could not say I was feeling much like God’s man of power for the hour.

I thought she was going to die.

But I prayed the benefits Psalm 103 over her.

2 Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
3 He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases.
4 He redeems me from death
and crowns me with love and tender mercies.
5 He fills my life with good things.
My youth is renewed like the eagle’s!

I left the room and talked with her husband about how the church could help when she went to be with the Lord.

Two days later she was out of the hospital completely healed!

You would think that after seeing something like that, I would never need to be reminded that God is good. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. We seem to forget the good things that God has done for us and through us.

So I want to give you six things out of Psalm 103 to help you remember that God is good by remembering all the good things He has done for us.

Remembering The 6 Benefits Of Psalm 103

The Psalmist writes that it is his prayer that he would never forget the good things that God has done for him. (vs.2) In the NKJV version, it says

“and forget not all His benefits.”

The way to remember that God is good is to remind ourselves of all the things that God has done for us.

The Psalmist lists six benefits of Psalm 103 that God has done that apply to every one of us.

They are

  1. Forgiveness
  2. Healing
  3. Redemption
  4. A Crown
  5. Satisfaction
  6. Renewal

Let’s take a look at each of these benefits and together we can then say that God indeed has been good to us.

#1 He Forgives All Our Sins

Sins are kind of like legal wrongs. They are things we did because we intended to do and they are things we did because we were negligent.

God forgives both types of sins. He forgave us when we intended to do wrong and when we did wrong because we failed to do something right.

He frees you to start over after you fail at something. He is the God of second, third, and infinite chances.

He cancels all the indictments against you. There is no warrant for your arrest, and all the charges against you have been dropped.

Any debt that you owed has been charged off. You no longer owe that debt.

That alone is enough to shout from the rooftops that God is good, but there is more!

#2 He Heals All Our Diseases

Many people get stuck on the fact that they have not seen or experienced miraculous healing like the one that I described at the beginning of this article, so they have a hard time believing that God is good.

As believers in Jesus, we must take a broader view of things than just our own experience.

We are still at war with the kingdom of darkness.

Yes, we know that Satan is defeated however that defeat ultimately comes in the future. In the present, we are still battling his dominion.

Understanding that allows us to understand why there are times that healing does not come to all even though God is a healing God. Sometimes healing occurs when we enter into the fullness of His kingdom in heaven.

The fact remains that whether we receive it here on earth or receive it when we enter into heaven, He heals all our diseases.

Not only do we need to broaden our horizons about physical healing but we need to expand our horizons on other types of healing.

He not only heals us from physical diseases but emotional and mental ones as well. I would bet that every one of you has had God heal you of anger, bitterness, depression, unforgiveness, and addictions.

Has He not healed your diseases?

#3 He Redeems Us

I am old enough to remember my mother and grandmother collecting S&H green stamps. They were little stamps that you would put in a book, and when you had enough saved, you could redeem them for products in a catalog.

Jesus has redeemed us!

The NKJV version says

“Who redeems your life from destruction.”

Whether you call it destruction, death, or the pit, this represents the abyss that you could not crawl out of.

God stuck his arm down into the deep dark hole that your life was trapped in and grabbed you out of it. He then placed you on solid ground where the sunlight of His presence basks you in the warmth of His embrace.

You, like I can sing along with the old hymn writer when he says

He brought me out of the miry clay

He places my feet on the rock to stay

He put a song in my soul today

A song of praise, Hallelujah!

#4 He Crowns Us

Every believer will be crowned with a crown of righteousness, a crown of life, and a crown of glory. (2 Tim. 4:8; James 1:12; 1 Pet. 5:4) However, that is in the future.

God wants to crown you with love and tender mercies today.

That means that He has placed upon you the rule and reign of love and mercy. Your life can and should be guided by these things.

Think back to all the times God has lavished His love upon you. Think of all the time He has tenderly given you mercy.

What you have freely received is to be freely given.

A life of love and a life of mercy is a good thing. Remember How good God has been to you with these two critical crowns in life.

#5 He Satisfies Us

God fills our life with good things. The NKJV says

“Who satisfies your mouth with good things.”

The whole picture here is that God satisfies our lives, our desires, our taste with good things.

This is the picture of hope fulfilled.

However, it is a long-term picture just like healing. It does not mean that our life is satisfied with our whims, but what will indeed bring satisfaction and peace in the long term.

Money cannot buy you, love. Fame cannot buy you peace. Worldly pleasures cannot satisfy you.

When I was younger, there were many things that I was dissatisfied with. Most of those dissatisfactions were a result of focusing on matters of limited value.

As I look back on my life today, I find myself much more satisfied. Jesus has given me eternal treasures, eternal significance, endless pleasure.

I can honestly say that He has given me the taste of good things in my life.

#6 He Renews Us

The word renew means to make new or to restore as if new.

God has made us new. He has restored us to what He initially designed for us.

If you take an eagle and place it is a cage with no light, it will not survive long. However, release it to what it was created to be, and it will soar.

God has renewed you to be released to soar just like the eagle. Just as the eagle is meant to fly free, so are you.

That is why God has given all His benefits (vs.2) to those that are oppressed or mistreated (vs. 6).

So now you can join with me and remember that God is good because of the six benefits of Psalm 103

Blessings!
