You know how everyone loves to have a job with lots of great benefits? Well did you know that the benefits of God are much better and everlasting than any job here on earth could ever give.
I mean their benefits are great for sure, but let's check out the benefits of serving God.
They can't even begin to give us what God can give us. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
Psalm 103:2-6 KJV Peace, joy, forgiveness, redemption, comfort, provision, hope, salvation, mercy, loving kindness , healing, and so much more!
But let's not forget that in this world we will walk through trouble, trials, death of loved ones, and have tribulation, but in the midst of it in Him we still have hope and peace, and are surrounded by His presence.
We still have all His benefits and promises.
Though we must make the choice of abiding and dwelling in Him. Rest and trust. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
John 16:33 KJV Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.
Trust ye in the Lord for ever: for in the Lord Jehovah is everlasting strength:
Isaiah 26:3-4 KJV The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children; Psalm 103:8, 11-12, 17 KJV

Great inspirational reading!
