Daily Scripture

"17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, 18 to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments." (Psalm 103:17-18)

Daily Reflection

If you get a moment, please read the whole of this Psalm; it speaks of what God does for us and this tells us what He is really like. King David’s praise focuses on God’s glorious deeds. It is easy to complain about life, but David, in Psalm 103, gives us plenty for which to praise God: He forgives our sins, heals us, redeems us from death, crowns us with love and compassion, satisfies our desires, and gives righteousness and justice. We receive all of these without deserving any of them. No matter how difficult your life’s journey, you can always count your blessings – past, present, and future. When you feel as though you have nothing for which to praise God, read Psalm 103.

Revd David
