Construction

Standard

Psalm 103:1-3 “Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,”

What an incredible verse! It’s full of God’s goodness and character! I was praying this verse over my family today and the part that really jumped out at me was “Who redeems your life from destruction”.

Destroy means “to render ineffective or useless; to put to an end.”

Because of God, our lives are redeemed from being useless! Redeemed means to buy or pay off.

I believe our lives are under construction, which means “to build or form by putting together parts”. We’re a work in progress!

God is in the building business, not the demolition crew.

I hope you are encouraged by this verse! I sure am!
