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.

Daily D – 2 Kings 23:25

2 Kings 23:25 Before him there was no king like him who turned to the Lord with all his heart and with all his soul and with all his strength according to all the law of Moses, and no one like him arose after him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 20:1-6

2 Kings 20:1-6 In those days Hezekiah became terminally ill. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz came and said to him, “This is what the Lord says: ‘Set your house in order, for you are about to die; you will not recover.’”

Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, “Please, Lord, remember how I have walked before you faithfully and wholeheartedly and have done what pleases you.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.

Isaiah had not yet gone out of the inner courtyard when the word of the Lord came to him: “Go back and tell Hezekiah, the leader of my people, ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will heal you. On the third day from now you will go up to the Lord’s temple. I will add fifteen years to your life. I will rescue you and this city from the grasp of the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my sake and for the sake of my servant David.’”

Daily D – 2 Kings 18:5-7

2 Kings 18:5-7 Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him.

Daily D – 2 Kings 17:12-15

2 Kings 17:12-15 They served idols, although the Lord had told them, “You must not do this.” Still, the Lord warned Israel and Judah through every prophet and every seer, saying, “Turn from your evil ways and keep my commands and statutes according to the whole law I commanded your ancestors and sent to you through my servants the prophets.” But they would not listen. Instead they became obstinate like their ancestors who did not believe the Lord their God. They rejected his statutes and his covenant he had made with their ancestors and the warnings he had given them. They followed worthless idols and became worthless themselves, following the surrounding nations the Lord had commanded them not to imitate.

Daily D – 2 Kings 13:4-6

2 Kings 13:4-6 Then Jehoahaz sought the Lord’s favor, and the Lord heard him, for he saw the oppression the king of Aram inflicted on Israel. Therefore, the Lord gave Israel a deliverer, and they escaped from the power of the Arameans. Then the people of Israel returned to their former way of life, but they didn’t turn away from the sins that the house of Jeroboam had caused Israel to commit. Jehoahaz continued them, and the Asherah pole also remained standing in Samaria.
