April 16, 2021 – Psalms 102-106

David is thankful for God’s goodness. And why shouldn’t he be? Here are some of the most glorious and comforting words in all the Psalms: “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love” (103:8) & “He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us” (103:10-12).


Oh, to ponder God’s patience and longsuffering toward us! Of all God’s attributes, this is among those that most amaze me. That God would suffer long with me though I am so often unfaithful to him! That God’s love toward me is always the same though mine toward him is so often cold! That my Savior’s blood was shed for me, for one so sinful! How great is his mercy toward us!


Frail children of dust, and feeble as frail,

in you do we trust, nor find you to fail.

Your mercies, how tender, how firm to the end,

our Maker, Defender, Redeemer, and Friend! --Robert Grant
