Psalm 103: Praise is born in the crucible of life

Psalm 103 testifies to the believer’s experience of the love and mercy of God. The psalm teaches that believers should worship God for who He is and for what He has done. It is, however, important to note that the praise offered to God in Psalm 103 is not “cheap” praise, but praise born in the crucible of life. Christians also experience times of hardship and times of trouble. However, new birth and new life go hand in hand with the experience of pain. Difficult times thus become a birthplace for praise.
