It gives me hope on days when I feel like I’m failing or have lost sight of what God has done, and brought me through, that they also forgot. He performed miracles right before their eyes, multiple times, still they doubted and didn’t trust the Lord. May we cling to the word and it’s truth that He is our rock and our redeemer.
38 Yet he, being compassionate,
atoned for their iniquity
and did not destroy them;
he restrained his anger often
and did not stir up all his wrath.
39 He remembered that they were but flesh,
a wind that passes and comes not again.
I love these verses! Just a reminder of how God knows we are human and that we sin. What matters to Him is how we deal with this sin.
Yes! I also think this is a great reminder to us to try to be compassionate and forgiving with one another.
my heart touched as i read this verse. How faithful is He!
37-39 “Their heart was not steadfast toward him; they were not faithful to his covenant. Yet he, being compassionate, atoned for their iniquity and did not destroy them; he restrained his anger often
and did not stir up all his wrath. He remembered that they were but flesh,
a wind that passes and comes not again”. 2nd (3rd, 4th, 10th) chances?
Only at 16%….but going strong. Haven’t missed a day. I’m really enjoying these Psalm days though. Anyone else liking how these passages are sprinkled in among the rest?
Woohoo!! That is AWESOME, Erin!
I love how God chose David towards the end of the chapter. We spoke about David today in church, so this is nice to see! :)
