With my whole heart, with my whole life
And with my innermost being,
I bow in wonder and love before you, the Holy God!
Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration;
How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness you’ve done for me?
You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done.
You healed me inside and out from every disease.
You’ve rescued me from hell and saved my life.
You’ve crowned me with love and mercy and made me a king.
You satisfy my every desire with good things.
You supercharged my life so that I soar again
Like a flying eagle in the sky.
You’re a God who makes things right,
Giving justice to the defenseless…
(Psalm 103:1-6 The Passion Translation)
There are passages of scripture some of us have learned are part of our inheritance. We keep running into them at crucial moments in our lives. They show up when we most need them. Psalm 103 is one of those passages for me.
The irony is that the Lord brings it to my attention when I feel least likely to be able to declare it without engaging a considerable amount of faith. Circumstances would seem to point in another direction.
But we live by faith and not by sight.
So today I stand and declare: You supercharged my life so that I soar again like an eagle flying in the sky!
It’s about His faithfulness. Therefore I have hope, the evidence of things not seen.
