Weekly Devotional Scripture: Psalm 103:7-18
GOD'S ENDURING LOVE
God made his ways known to Moses; made his deeds known to the Israelites. The LORD is compassionate and merciful, very patient, and full of faithful love. God won’t always play the judge; he won’t be angry forever. He doesn’t deal with us according to our sin or repay us according to our wrongdoing, because as high as heaven is above the earth, that’s how large God’s faithful love is for those who honor him. As far as east is from west that’s how far God has removed our sin from us. Like a parent feels compassion for their children that’s how the LORD feels compassion for those who honor him. Because God knows how we’re made, God remembers we’re just dust. The days of a human life are like grass: they bloom like a wildflower; but when the wind blows through it, it’s gone; even the ground where it stood doesn’t remember it. But the LORD’s faithful love is from forever ago to forever from now for those who honor him. And God’s righteousness reaches to the grandchildren of those who keep his covenant and remember to keep his commands.
