The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. Psalm 103:8
The opening words…“The Lord IS…” communicates who HE IS – not what He does. His very being and essence is compassion and mercy. The result? Therefore He is slow to anger. (Thank You Lord!) He gives love because He is love. And because He is love, He is always full of unfailing love.
This passage reminds me of the worship chorus to “One Thing Remains.” His love never fails, never gives up, never runs out on me…!
I am a beneficiary of who God is in love, compassion and mercy.
Today, I am affected, even strengthened in my thought life. That despite my worldliness, faults and sinful, stinking’ thinkin’ – He is always faithful, compassionate and merciful, and therefore…Unfailing in Love!
I am grateful for who You are in character Father, Jesus and Spirit! I confess that I fall so short in so many ways. Yet my heart gives You thanks and praise for who You are, despite who I am! I surrender all my heart to Your compassion, mercy and unfailing love!
