OUR FORGIVING HEAVENLY FATHER
“But he, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.”
Psalm 78:38 KJV
I wonder how many times our precious and forgiving Heavenly Father has turned His anger away from us when we did something or said something that hurt Him and broke His heart. “He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities” (Psalm 103:10).
I am so glad that we have a forgiving Heavenly Father. “If thou, LORD, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand?” (Psalm 130:3) If it were not for the precious redeeming blood of Jesus that He shed for our sins on the cross, we would be on our way to hell. Thank God for the blood of Jesus.
Heavenly Father, we love You. Jesus, we love You. Holy Spirit, we love You. Thank You, dear Father, for loving us so much that You forgive us when we fail You and hurt You. Please help us to love one another unconditionally as Jesus has commanded us to love. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
