Psalm 103

David provides a wonderful understanding of God for us to rest in and celebrate.

God is holy, forgiving, loving, compassionate, good, righteous, gracious  and everlasting and more.  The Lord is interested in us; he “satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed…”

Take some time today to meditate on these verses from Psalm 103.

The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
    slow to anger, abounding in love.
He will not always accuse,
    nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
    so great is his love for those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;

Know today, that you are deeply loved and forgiven by God.  How will you respond the Lord’s love this day?
