1Bless the LORD, O my soul,Psalm 103:1-8
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name.
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and do not forget all his benefits—
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfies you with good as long as you live
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6 The LORD works vindication
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
One of the purposes of anointing in scripture is for healing. This cherished Psalm speaks of God’s work of healing in our lives. Identify all the ways it does this and spend time reflecting on the ways you have witnessed God’s healing work in your own life or the lives of others.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
