Encouragement From The Word

As far as the east is from the west

Simply spend some time meditating on these words today.  Let them wash over you as you read them several times.

The Lord is compassionate and merciful,
slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.

 He will not constantly accuse us,
nor remain angry forever.
 He does not punish us for all our sins;
he does not deal harshly with us, as we deserve.
 For his unfailing love toward those who fear him
is as great as the height of the heavens above the earth.
 He has removed our sins as far from us
as the east is from the west.
  (Psalm 103.8-12, NLT)

How will you respond to the Lord in light of this?
