‘A Spiritual Health Plan’
Bless the LORD, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits.
- Psalm 103:2
When I receive my periodical health insurance statements, I always see the large, boldfaced print on top of the first page: Explanation Of Benefits (EOB). My health plan helps me to understand the benefits and know how well they are supporting my physical well-being. For this, I am very thankful. When reading this message some time ago, I thought about the spiritual benefits that were being given to my soul, so I taped the large EOB on the front cover of my Bible. This is a good reminder when I read the sacred words about Jesus, the divine physician, who benefits my soul with saving grace.
I have the assurance from the Lord that I can ask, seek and knock anytime for the door to be opened for spiritual assistance. My soul has great benefits from Jesus, guiding and strengthening me along the way: truth and life. It’s the most excellent spiritual health plan, freely given for life, now and in the future.
