Exaltation: Bless the Lord O my soul

Preacher:
Passage: Psalm 103

I’m wondering if you’ve ever been so happy that you feel like you’re going to explode. That’s the feeling I get when I read Psalm 103. The psalmist is trying his best to express the joy, gratitude, and adoration that he has for his God, but words alone fail him. The passion that’s in his heart comes through as he says repeatedly through his song, “Bless the LORD…bless the LORD…bless the LORD.”

While lament is often what flows out of the depths of our being, this psalm overflows with celebration and worship. Nothing is held back as the psalmist leads us to exalt the LORD with all that we are and all that we have for all that he is and all that he’s done.
