The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness.
How do you see God?
Did you know that how you see God affects every area of your life? Do you see Him as an angry judge or a loving father? Many times your view of God has more to do with how you were raised then what the Bible says about God. This promise gives us four qualities of God. We are going to focus on that last phrase; His abounding lovingkindness.
Lovingkindness is the picture of a grandfather who when seeing his grandchild, he bends down to their level. He turns His ear is so He can hear every word they say.
God’s abounding lovingkindness is focused toward you today.
Lovingkindness is a beautiful Old Testament that shows up 26 times. Lovingkindness is God’s commitment love to His people. Lovingkindness is grace, mercy, and love all mixed into one. It is God’s lovingkindness that continues to love you even when you are disobedient or in rebellion to Him.
God loves you beyond your actions.
He is faithful to you, even when you aren’t faithful to Him. It is God’s lovingkindness that works in your life to call you back to Himself. Romans 2:4 says that it is His kindness that brings us to repentance. Sometimes we think God’s first response to our sin is judgment and discipline. His first response is always love. God is committed to loving you so much that you can’t help but respond to Him. His lovingkindness is working in your life today so that you will grow into the person He has called you to be. Lovingkindness is His willingness to forgive your sin over and over and over.
Look at that verse again.
The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. – Psalm 103:8
