When you meditate on all of God’s promises and establish them deep in your heart, you will begin to reap those blessings as you walk according to God’s Word. In fact, the blessings of God will overtake you as you forget not all His benefits!
Do you want to live in the fullness of what God has provided for you in Jesus Christ? Then you will have to do what Psalm 103:2 says: “Forget not all of God’s benefits!”
You see, the blessings you don’t know about or the ones you forget about are the blessings you won’t enjoy.
And if you’re not enjoying all the blessings God has for you right now, there are probably two reasons why you aren’t. Either you don’t know about His blessings and benefits, or you’re forgetting to act on God’s Word concerning them. Those are the two main reasons why God’s blessings aren’t manifested in believers’ lives.
God’s Word is full of blessings for you. But the only way to take advantage of those benefits is to find out what God’s Word has to say about them and believe His promises are true. Then you must continually remember to act on those promises in your everyday life.
It’s the same way in the natural world. For instance, if you went to work for a company, the personnel manager would probably give you a rundown of your employee benefits. But you could leave that office and begin working on your new job and forget all about the company benefits that belong to you.
If someone reminds you about a benefit you forgot, it jogs your memory. But because you had forgotten about it, you hadn’t been enjoying that particular privilege—even though it belonged to you.
Believers do the same thing. All too often we forget about the benefits that belong to us in Christ. All of God’s wonderful benefits belong to us because they were secured for us by Jesus Christ in His redemptive work on the Cross of Calvary.
Everything we have in Christ, everything we receive from God, and every benefit given to us by God—has already been provided for us by Jesus. All of God’s blessings belong to us now. But we will have to learn how to take advantage of what belongs to us before it will benefit us.
What are our benefits in God that we should forget not? Some of these wonderful benefits of our salvation are listed in Psalm 103:2-5.
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.
All the benefits of God are there for you to enjoy. It’s up to you to establish them firmly in your heart so you can forget them not! Keep them before your eyes. Meditate on them so they’re firmly established in your heart. Don’t be robbed of experiencing God’s blessings by allowing the enemy to pull you away from the Word of God.
Get hold of the Word the same way you learned to remember other truths that were important to you. If you constantly think about God’s benefits, you won’t forget them!
Forget not all of God’s benefits. Act on God’s Word in faith, and enjoy the blessings that are yours in Jesus Christ!
