Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/22/10

This week’s scripture is from Exodus:

“The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished…”        (Exodus 34:6-7a)

In these challenging times, it is good to remember who God is. In this scripture, God is speaking to Moses, proclaiming His name. Look how He describes Himself and reveals who He is. How blessed we are to be the children of the Almighty One, whose grace, mercy, and love abound in our lives, whose faithfulness is everlasting and true, who is forgiving of grievous sin, yet is just and righteous. What a great and good God we have as our Heavenly Father. Let us praise Him and thank Him for all His blessings, for there is no other like Him.

May God’s great blessings, His very nature, be yours this day and each day as you praise Him.
