Healing the Soul (2)

“My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad”(Psalms 34:2).

In Psalm 34, David expressed praises to God and vowed to praise continually. He called others to magnify God because when he cried out, God heard him and delivered him from everything that he feared. “They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed” (Psalms 34:5). The poor person cried and the Lord heard him and delivered him out of all his troubles. David invited everyone to try God for themselves, to see that it is good to serve him. Those who serve God lack nothing good because they trust in him. “Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name” (Psalms 103:1)! Again in Psalm 103, David commanded his mind, will and emotions to bless the Lord.

Praising God with everything means coming before him empty, so that we can be refilled. Emptied of self ensures being full of the presence of God, as we walk in the spirit and no longer in the flesh. David later commanded his soul to bless the Lord and to keep in remembrance all of the good benefits of serving Him. As our sins are forgiven, we are healed, redeemed and crowned with love and mercy. “Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s” (Psalms 103:5). God renews and restores and he executes righteousness and justice to those who are oppressed. God is merciful to us, slow to anger and has moved our sins far away from us.

In Psalm 139, David spoke about God’s perfect knowledge of man, who had searched him and knew everything about him. “You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off” (Psalms 139:2). God knew David’s ways, every word he would speak and had surrounded him on every side. David acknowledged that the wisdom of God was something that he could not understand. Furthermore, there was no place on earth where he could go where God would not find him. “If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there” (Psalms 139:8). Even in the sea, God would find David and the darkness could not hide him. This is because God created him when he was in his mother’s womb.

In essence, David was saying that he was not an accident and that God designed and created him. You are not an accident, even if your parents did not plan the timing of your birth. The devil cannot create and does not give life as life comes from God. Your existence on this planet indicates the plan and purpose of God. There is nothing that you have done, no place you can run and no sin that can separate you from God. What He needs is your complete surrender to his will so that he can heal and restore your soul. Living for God, trusting in him, serving him and giving him praise and worship, is the best way to heal and restore a broken soul. “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well” (Psalms 139:14).

  1. “If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea…” Psalm 139:9

    I had a thought when I read this part:
    many times when the bible mentions the sea it speaks of humanity, thus “the sea of humanity”

    Even among billions of people, both present, past, and future, God will always know you and I by name.

    God bless you Anneta.

  2. “Furthermore, there was no place on earth where he could go where God would not find him.”💕
    Even Jonah tried to get away from God…running towards Nineveh. But He too found out there was no place on earth where God would/could not find him.

    Now the Lord had prepared and appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. (Jon 1:17)

      1. I am actually feeling really well. It’s still too early for gardening 👩🏾‍🌾, so I started walking 🚶🏾‍♀️ again…just a few miles /day. This old girl will be turning 50 next month. Wow!! 🎊

      2. It’s the conversation I have with my Dad on a regular basis. He’s 88 and I encourage him to go walking daily as they both live on a hill. Sometimes in the past he would make excuses and I’d remind him what the bible says. As a bible scholar himself, he ain’t arguing with me when I quote scriptures. He lets me know when I call that he gets up and goes for his walks!

      4. 😋 That sounds great. I always keep a garlic/ginger and honey mix for colds/sinus, and congestion…but I never thought to add the rum. Now I do have a rum/honey and mint leaf mixture that I created, 3-4 months ago.…I might just add some fresh garlic and ginger to it💡
