Praise the Lord
In Ps 103: 13 we read that the just as the Father shows compassion so also the Lord shows compassion on those who fear him. Human fathers show compassion to their children by virtue of being fathers. No matter how hard, obstinate and rebellious the child may be the father still has some place of love and mercy for the child. It is because of the law of love or familial relationship. So also the heavenly father shows compassion by being virtue of being the one who has created us and known us. But the only qualifying statement is that for those who fear him. So for those who are rebellious God may show his hand of discipline and they may stand under his wrath, but for those who fear him he shows to be compassionate. How is your relationship to your Father today? What are you experiencing from Him today?
