Forget Not His Benefits by Roberts Liardon
The benefits of God are the miracles that exist all around you. God’s benefits are built into the life of every believer, if only you will accept them. He wants to give you His benefits, but before He can do that, your hands must be open and ready to receive them, the miracles and mighty acts that God has performed in the past make up the history that we Christians cherish today. How thrilling it is to read about the great things God has done through the prophets, the apostles, and, of course, through the hands of His own Son. Those stories from the Bible should serve to encourage and strengthen us. And yet we are totally wrong if we think that the miracles of God are relegated to the past. God is still in the miracle-working business today, and the mighty acts He is doing in our time will make up the history of tomorrow. If the Lord tarries, we will have an opportunity to convey in detail to our grandchildren what God has done in our generation. Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.
