Daily D – Psalm 103:13
Psalm 103:13 The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. (NLT)
Psalm 103 is filled with precious gems. King David begins on a roll with the first five verses. He continues with picturesque words and memorable phrases. Verse 12 is a favorite of many. Verse 13 and those following are especially comforting. David’s bottom line in verse 22 is a fitting conclusion to a song now sung.
_Let all that I am praise the LORD._
This is a Sunday Psalm if ever there was one.
Verse 13 summarizes all David says about God in this psalm. Verse 22 is the only appropriate response. God is good all the time. Let us praise him with all we are.
How has God been good to you this past week? What thanksgiving will you give him today? How will you praise him for who he is?
I will praise God for demonstrating his perfect fatherhood over us, his children.
Our Father, thank you for your perfect fatherhood. Everything you do is motivated and animated by your perfect love. You seek our highest and best in all things at all times. We are never out of your care. You are merciful, kind, and compassionate. You forgive our sins and heal our diseases. You are better to us than we would be to ourselves. How could we not sing your praise? How could we not give thanks from grateful hearts? Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
