Day 145, Psalm 145

This beautiful psalm was written at the end of David’s life. He is praising the LORD and telling us about the LORD’s character. This is a good psalm to read throughout the year to remind yourself who God is. I especially love verses 8-9:

The LORD is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love. The LORD is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.

The passion translations says. You’re kind and tenderhearted to those who don’t deserve it and very patient with people who fail you. Your love is like a flooding river overflowing its banks with kindness.

The phrase: “…and very patient with people who fail you.” Gave me a lot of food for thought. I am so grateful for God’s patience with me. Especially when I was rejecting Him and failing miserably. It also makes me think of my level of patience with those who fail me and I am challenged to change the way I pray for them. Jesus is being patient with them. My prayers will be less about “fixing” someone and more about “fixing” my heart towards them and being thankful for this gift he gives to me as well.

Thank you Jesus for being patient with me.

See you tomorrow for Psalm 146.
