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.

Jonah 4:2, 3 So he complained to the Lord about it: “Didn’t I say before I left home that you would do this, Lord? That is why I ran away to Tarshish! I knew that you are a merciful and compassionate God, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. You are eager to turn back from destroying people. Just kill me now, Lord! I’d rather be dead than alive if what I predicted will not happen.”
Joel 2:12, 13 That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time. Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief, but tear your hearts instead.” Return to the Lord your God, for he is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. He is eager to relent and not punish.”
Hosea 14:8, 9 “O Israel, stay away from idols! I am the one who answers your prayers and cares for you. I am like a tree that is always green; all your fruit comes from me.” Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those with discernment listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But in those paths sinners stumble and fall.”
