The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. 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. (Psalms 103:8-12 ESV) How different the Lord is from us! His mercy, grace, and love reach far beyond our own need and wanderings to embrace and restore us. Then He forgets and removes our shame. How amazing is His love! ©Word-Strong_2013
