Psalm 103 When the Israelites were released from bondage in Egypt, God told them that if they worshiped Him and Him only He would provide His lovingkindness to them.
The author of this psalm reminds us of those words and encourages us. God has released us from our bondage of sin through salvation. He is the one who forgives all our sins and heals all our diseases. He delivers us from the pit of sin and crowns us with lovingkindness and compassion. In addition, he satisfies our life with good things and renews us like the eagle, which is a picture of the eagle which molts and then gains new feathers. As believers, we “molt” when we give up our sins and are given new life in Jesus Christ.
The Lord revealed his faithful acts to Moses and his deeds to the Israelites. As we read and ponder these words, may we be encouraged to recall and give God praise for His lovingkindness and compassion to us. H. F. Lyte’s popular hymn, “Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven speaks of God’s character.
Praise, my soul, the King of heaven; to his feet your tribute bring. Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, evermore his praises sing. Alleluia! Alleluia! Praise the everlasting King!
