Thy Youth is Renewed like the eagle’s.
Ps. 103:1 – 5. Bless the Lord , O my soul: and all that is within me, bless His holy name.
Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thine diseases;
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with loving kindness; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy
As far as the east is from the west He hath removed our transgressions from us.
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him
Bless the Lord, ye His angels, that excel in strength, that do His commandments, hearkening unto the voice of His word .
The Psalmist's words describing the renewal of youth as the young eagle brings to mind how gracious and bountiful in grace the Lord is to us. To have a refreshing renewal of strength is so uplifting for the soul as well as the body. We may become refreshed by bedrest or other physical means and be able to continue to serve again. How blessed we are when the Lord grants such mercies. But lest we forget, He grants a refreshing of Spirit as well How blessed we are to enjoy that refreshment and rejoice in that joy.
We are so blessed with the abundance of God's grace and mercies How rich His blessings are for us each day and how He lights the path with His presence. May He always be honored in our daily walk.
God bless and keep you all in this day,
