Psalm 103:1-22

Psalm 103 is jam-packed with descriptions of God’s grace. Look at just the verbs—the action words—from verses 3 through 6. God is the One who forgives, heals, redeems, crowns, satisfies, renews, and works righteousness and justice.

In the midst of all this action, David the psalmist points out God’s love as central to His character. God does all these things out of his immense love, which stretches from one infinite extreme to the other (v. 17). Let’s be honest: the God who is this powerful could (and, because of sin, should) squash us like bugs. But He doesn’t because of a love that is as high as the heavens. God doesn’t want to squash us. God loves us and will be utterly faithful if we will keep our covenant relationship with Him.

In the midst of a world filled with broken promises, unmet expectations, dishonesty, deceit, and full-blown sin, Psalm 103 is very Good News to us. God will never forsake His people.
