‘Bless the Lord, O my soul…Who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with faithful love and compassion.’ (Psalm 103 v 1 and 4)
How do you see God? According to some writers, the way we think about God influences everything about our lives - our attitudes, our desires, actions and even our words. Do you see God as uninterested, distant, powerless maybe? Let the words of today’s Psalm help you to see God as he really is – God who redeems you, makes you “whole” again, shows you your true potential. You are precious to Him, so precious that he “crowns” you with his love. So precious that he “crowns” you with his compassion. Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ, says that we can trace all our human problems back to our view of God. The Bible tells us the truth about God – He is full of love, full of compassion and longing to meet our every need. Perhaps it is not our circumstances that need changing, but the way we see God?
