Music is the language of the heart. That is why I wrote the psalms for you to sing. It helps to get them down into your heart, long after the song is over. There it is watered every time you recall the lyrics and meditate on their meaning. Take time to not only learn the words, but actually "chew" on them. Talk to Me about them. Declare them over your life and circumstances. Pray them back to Me.
I love when you pray My Word because life is always released when you do. It is My Word activated by your faith. Do not worry if your faith is small or if it feels awkward. I always honor obedience which causes your faith to grow. My Word judges your thoughts and emotions. Then it is your job to apply My Word. Command your soul to bless Me. Take authority over the enemy's lies and your emotions. You have the assured victory through the blood of Jesus. You are an overcomer!
Psalm 103 The Passion Translation (TPT)
OUR FATHER’S LOVE
1 With my whole heart, with my whole life,
and with my innermost being,
I bow in wonder and love before you, the Holy God!
2 Yahweh, you are my soul’s celebration.
How could I ever forget the miracles of kindness
you’ve done for me?
3 You kissed my heart with forgiveness, in spite of all I’ve done.a
You’ve healed me inside and out from every disease.
4 You’ve rescued me from hell and saved my life.
You’ve crowned me with love and mercy and made me a king.c
5 You satisfy my every desire with good things.d
You’ve supercharged my life so that I soar again
like a flying eagle in the sky!
6 You’re a God who makes things right,
giving justice to the defenseless.
7 You unveiled to Moses your plans
and showed Israel’s sons what you could do.
8 You’re so kind and tenderhearted to those who don’t deserve it
and so very patient with people who fail you!
Your love is like a flooding river
overflowing its banks with kindness.
9 You don’t look at us only to find our faults,
just so that you can hold a grudge against us.
10 You may discipline us for our many sins,
but never as much as we really deserve.
Nor do you get even with us for what we’ve done.
11 Higher than the highest heavens—
that’s how high your tender mercy extends!
Greater than the grandeur of heaven above
is the greatness of your loyal love towering over all
who fear you and bow down before you!
12 Farther than from a sunrise to a sunset—
that’s how far you’ve removed our guilt from us!
13 The same way a loving father feels toward his children—
that’s but a sample of your tender feelings toward us,
your beloved children, who live in awe of you!
