Today I chose Psalm 103 to focus on. With all the bad and frightening news we have, this Psalm is a reminder that God ‘has our back.’
103:11-14 states, “For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Just as a father has compassion on His children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear Him. For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.”
We must keep this thought with us: God is our Father. He didn’t just redeem us from the slave holder Satan; He didn’t just cleanse us from all our sin. God became our Father. We need to think of Him in that way—our Father.
