Psalm 103 is a psalm of remembering, written by King David.  The psalm calls us, as God’s children, to remember who He is, what He has done and who we are in Jesus.  The following is an excerpt from the book, “Why the Butterfly? A Book About Rightly Remembering”

 Remember Who God is: 

Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. (vs 1) The LORD executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are. The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. (vs 6-7)

 Remember what God has done for you: 

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.(vss 2-5, emphasis added) As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us. (vs 12, emphasis added)

Remember Who you are in Him

Forgiven, healed, redeemed crowned, satisfied, renewed, without sin.  

 Forget not His benefits—and Remember…

His mercy and love for you, and the promises you have in this life and the glory to come.  

But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them. The LORD hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all. (vs 17-19) 

Remembering Is Important.  

It’s important that we remember (or “forget not” as King David wrote) all that God has done for us.  Every day, that requires remembering who He is — His love, mercy, kindness, and grace. Remembering should always prompt us to praise and thank Him for we are promised that His mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).

Thanksgiving is Important

Although the third Thursday in November is set apart as a day to be thankful, we are to remember His benefits every day. Consider the benefits from God, listed in Psalm 103, and take a few minutes to some specific ones and give thanks.
