Praise The God Of Mercy

Passage: Psalm 103

Sunday Service

 

Praise The God Of Mercy

Psalm 103

 

THEME: Are there times when you don’t feel like praising the Lord Almighty? You know all of the reasons why you should praise God (intellectually) and you even have personal stories of God’s faithfulness in your life, but you haven’t truly experienced the “joy of the Lord” in some time. If we are honest, all of us have experienced something like this at some point in our Christian walk. We know we should praise the God of mercy, but we simply don’t feel like it. Psalm 103 serves as a great reminder that we must not forget the many blessings of God, but instead give thanks for receiving and enjoying them (1 Thessalonians 5:18). This Psalm becomes a practical roadmap of how we are supposed to think about the mercies of God, because we don’t feel like praising God, it is essential that we remind ourselves of who He really is and what He’s done for us. This in turn should cause our hearts to re-orientate toward Him, producing a response of gratitude and praise no matter what the circumstances may be. This morning we will ask and answer a series of questions in order to help us praise the God of mercy.

 

I. HOW SHOULS A PERSON PRAISE GOD? (v.1)

 

II. WHY SHOULD A PERSON PRAISE GOD? (vv. 2-5)

 

III. WHAT IS GOD LIKE THAT WE SHOULD PRAISE HIM? (vv. 6-18)

 

IV. WHO SHOULD PRAISE GOD?  (vv. 19-22)

 

How will you practically begin to take a few moments each day to remember God’s benefits? How will you use these truths to motivate praise, God-fearing obedience and greater affection for Him?
