Restoration and Renewal

"who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's"
Psalm 103:5  (NIV)

We could make verse 5 a part of the benefit package if we like.  That would be 5 things the Lord does for us: (1) "forgives our sins"; (2) "heals our diseases"; (3) "redeems your life from the pit"; (4) "crowns you with love and compassion"; and (5) "satisfies your desires with good things."



Restoration and Renewal

Verse 5: "who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's."

When our desires are His desires He is free to grant them.   The result of this is seen in the last phrase in verse 5: "so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's."

Isaiah 40:31: "but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." (NIV)

Psalm 92:14: "They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green" (NIV).

2 Corinthians 4:16: Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day" (NASB).

Don Wyrtzen concludes this verse with this prayer:  "I praise You and thank You, O Lord, for all of Your blessings to me; Your forgiveness, Your healing, Your deliverance, Your love, Your compassion, and for fully satisfying my inner being with Yourself."

I think it would be appropriate for us to sing that contemporary hymn: You Raise Me Up.

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary When troubles come and my heart burdened be Then, I am still and wait here in the silence Until you come and sit awhile with me.  There is no life - no life without its hunger Each restless heart beats so imperfectly But when you come and I am filled with wonder Sometimes, I think I glimpse eternity.  You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains.  You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas.  I am strong, when I am on your shoulders.  You raise me more than I can be.

Christ is All and in All,

For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
