O my soul, come, praise the Eternal
with all that is in me—body, emotions, mind, and will—every part of who I am—
praise His holy name.
2 O my soul, come, praise the Eternal;
sing a song from a grateful heart;
sing and never forget all the good He has done.
3 Despite all your many offenses, He forgives and releases you.
More than any doctor, He heals your diseases.
4 He reaches deep into the pit to deliver you from death.
He crowns you with unfailing love and compassion like a king.
5 When your soul is famished and withering,
He fills you with good and beautiful things, satisfying you as long as you live.
He makes you strong like an eagle, restoring your youth.
6 When people are crushed, wronged, enslaved, raped, murdered,
the Eternal is just; He makes the wrongs right. (Psalms 103:2-5 VOICE)
You'll never run short with God.
You'll never run out or run dry.
Because He's more than enough. He's exceeding abundantly above. He's the ultimate supplier.
He is Jehovah Jireh, God who sees to it. (H3070, Strong's Hebrew & Greek Dictionary) Do you get that? He'll see to it you have what you need.
If you run empty, He'll fill you.
If you run away, He'll draw you back with loving arms.
If you run shy, He has the exact thing you need in the right proportion at the right moment.
He's strong enough to save you, smart enough to defend you, merciful enough to replenish you.
He'll restock, refit, refurnish.
If you fall away, He'll forgive you. He's full of compassion.
If you fall down, He'll lift you. Put you in the place you need to be.
If you fall flat, His arm is long enough to catch you before you hit the bottom.
Backslide, back off, back the wrong thing and find yourself hurting, and He's back there, waiting to help you out.
You can't escape Him. He knows the way to where you are.
You can't deny Him. He's been there and done that already.
But you can taste him and see that He is good. (Ps 34:8)
And you can try him and see if He won't open the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing so big, so huge, you'll run out of containers. (Mal 3:10)
There aren't enough banks for the prosperity He holds.
There aren't enough fields for the cattle He owns.
And no barn you build is ever big enough to bottle up what He has in store for you.
So sit back and enjoy the wildest ride of your life, hands overhead, a smile on your face, and scream with joy as the blessings He gives comes down the track because no matter how hard you try He'll outdo you.
Outlast. Outstay. Outlive. Outstanding.
He's extraordinary, exceptional, phenomenal, incredible.
The God of the unusual, unprecedented, unimaginable, and unique.
What? You don't believe me? You think this is a lot of words without meaning spun by someone who has no clue where you're at?
Then go look in the mirror, my friend, because the God who can do all that, the God of everything and all things, wasn't limited to anything when He created you. He simply did it. And then He sat down and said it was good. (Ge 1:31)
