Chuck and I got married a little over two years ago and we are on our third insurance plan. Needless to say it is easy to forget what is covered. They sent me a book late last year full of details of what is and is not covered. When I call a doctors office I go through the process again. When we get a bill I often have friendly dialogues with our insurance company over what is their responsibility and what is ours.
Last night while sharing on Psalm 103, the thought struck me, we need to know what our benefits are of being a believer! We have a book full of benefits that are available to us!
Are there benefits you are trying to cover on your own that Christ has already provided for you?
King David gives us quite the list of these benefits…”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.” (Psalms 103:2-5 NKJV)
Why do we often, like David, forget our benefits?
We have an enemy who has been trying to convince us God isn’t who He says He is since His first appearance back in the garden. Your circumstances don’t determine your benefits. (Unless you let them!) The Word of God should be where we discover the benefits that are available to us.
What benefits is God revealing to you today?
I encourage you today to dig into your book of benefits today and discover the promises waiting to invade your current season.
