Ps. 103: 8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious,
Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. source
The LORD is compassionate and gracious.
That is just a fact. The Scripture says it. The LORD is compassionate and gracious. We either believe it or we don’t. Whether we do or not, it’s still so.
Slow to anger. GOD does get angry. It’s a fact. It is also a fact that even in anger He is still compassionate and gracious.
So why do we run from Him, ignore Him, shun Him and flat-out dis-believe Him? Good question.
Ps. 103: 11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear Him.
12 As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 Just as a father has compassion on his children,
So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him.
14 For He Himself knows our frame;
He is mindful that we are but dust. source
John 3:16(KJV) 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
