SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 07/17- “Listen Up Soul, I’m Talking To You!” (Psalm 103:1-2)
Premise Question: Why is it so vitally important, being an absolute necessity, from time to time, to have a serious sit down conversation with ourselves?
“Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. Let all that I am praise the LORD; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” (Psalms 103:1-2 NLT)
Listen up, I’m talking to you, the seat of all my emotions, feelings and thoughts, my very soul…with a grateful and most affectionate heart, praise and worship The LORD GOD Almighty; I command you, at the very core and essence of my existence, the most intimate part of my being, within the within, to worship and venerate His Holy Name, which is the only name that is entitled and worthy of such honor. And another thing! ‘You still talking to me?’ Yes, my soul, so pay close attention; praise and worship The LORD with your whole being, and never fail or neglect to recount and remember every one of His great and helpful advantageous benefits He continually blesses and provides us, as our Healer, our Rock, our Shelter, our Comforter, providing abundantly for all of our daily needs. (Psalm 103:1-2 PDCP)
Bottom Line: An absolute must for all of us, from time to time, is to have a serious sit down introspective, reflective, meditative and contemplative direct conversation with ourselves—our soul. We should, with diligence, do this, in order to get ahold of ourselves, so as to keep ourselves straightened out, making sure we that we don’t stray, but continue to stay on the straight and narrow way, the path that leads us to everlasting joy, peace and an abundantly flourishing life, in this life, and in the life to come!
King David gives us a wonderful picture, a great example of the importance of having a direct conversation with ourselves, by telling his own self to get in line with The LORD’S Word and purpose for his life; which is to worship and praise The LORD with everything that is within us and to never forget to recount the long list of good things that The LORD has done for us, by ever thanking and praising Him!
Here is the huge list of just what The LORD has done for us. Check it out for yourself, as it immediately follows verse 2 of Psalms 103: The LORD forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, fills, renews, gives, reveals, removes, loves.
I encourage you to carefully read, consider and then meditate upon the entire 103rd Psalm, in order to get the whole picture of what The LORD has done, is doing and will do for all those who believe and are His very own beloved children. Also look at Psalms 42:5,11 and 43:5, as well as, the words of the Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:4, and the incredibly encouraging words of Jesus in The Gospel of John 14:1,27.
Listen up soul! Yes, I’m talking to you! Pay close attention to what I’m telling you! Blessings…
