Psalm 103, the first of a group of psalms of praise (Psalms 103-107), reminds us with skill and beauty that God’s loving-kindness is the source of our greatest satisfaction. The psalm begins with a personal hymn of thanksgiving (verses 1-5) in which David recounts several reasons to praise the Lord from his personal experience of walking with Him. The psalm shifts in the second stanza from an individual thanksgiving to a communal hymn of praise around the theme of God’s loyal love (verses 6-18). The third stanza of the psalm transports us from the individual and the community to the entire created order (verses 19-22). The meditation moves from God’s grace to God’s greatness as the psalmist invokes the myriad angelic and heavenly hosts to bless the holy Name.
Reading of Psalm 103
Lord, if I do not love You with my whole being, I will love some lesser good with my whole being. I ask that I would put You first in my affections and seek You as my supreme good and final joy.
