Message of the Day: God Understands Our Weaknesses.
“As a father pities his children,
So the Lord pities those who fear Him.” ( Psalm 103:13, NKJV)
Thought to have been written in David’s old age, this psalm summarizes God’s dealings with him. One of the best-loved psalms.
The constant love of God for his people is seen in the history of Israel. He cares for the oppressed and shows mercy on sinners. If God will act only according to his justice, all sinners will perish. But to his justice he adds mercy, so sinners may be forgiven.
God understands our weaknesses and he is kind to those who fear him. Psalm 103:13 can be translated: “As the tender compassions of a father towards his children; so the tender compassions of Jehovah towards them that fear him.”
There is nothing that can replace the tenderness and concern of God for his creatures in a stronger light than this.
