‘Blessed be the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits.’ Psalm 68:19 NKJV
When you speak words of faith over your life based on the Scriptures, Jesus taught that you will ‘have whatever [you] say’ (see Mark 11:23). David refers to God’s blessings as ‘benefits’, and says that God ‘daily loads us with benefits’. Note the word ‘loads’. We’re not talking here about the capacity of a teacup but a dump truck! God is waiting, willing, and wanting to do these things for you.
That’s why the psalmist writes: ‘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 lovingkindness and tender mercies, Who satisfies your mouth with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. The LORD executes righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed … The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy … He has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor punished us according to our iniquities. For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy towards those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. As a father pities his children, so the LORD pities those who fear Him. For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust … But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him, and His righteousness to children’s children’ (Psalm 103:2-6, 8, 10-14, 17 NKJV). Understand this: you activate the power of God’s Word when you confess it over your life.
