Psalm 103 — Thank You for Remembering!

Day 2154: Continuing with just who our amazing God is using Psalm 103! Today’s verse is in bold.

Scripture: He has removed our sins from us as far as the east is from the west. Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He knows how weak we are; He remembers we are only dust. Psalm 103:12-14

Thoughts/questions: God’s knowledge of us could lead Him to entirely different responses. Knowing everything about us – thoughts/actions/intents – could rival the patience of even God Himself and mercy could be elusive.

Or, He could do as today’s verse in conjunction with yesterday’s as well suggests; He chooses to focus on the fact that we are weak, so weak. And He remembers that we are not whom we shall be. Today, we are mere ‘dust in waiting,’ as our bodies will soon return to that state.

Physically, we are still entrapped by our decaying earth suit; spiritually, we are sinners. And in response to remembering these two factors, our great God understands!!! And in His understanding He gives compassion, grace, mercy, forgiveness, love, peace and the list goes on.

What a truly great God!!!

Suggested prayer: Father God, I praise You and bless Your name for remembering just who I am and loving me just the same . . .
