abounding

abounding

From Psalm 103:8

The LORD is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.

The Lord overflows with steadfast love for His people. Like Moses when God announced this very aspect of himself to him, my heart bursts into worship of this God who is so much better to His people than we ever deserve. Why, oh why, do we ever forget his benefits?

People disappoint us. Fellow believers and loved ones hurt us. People leave. They give up on us. We do those things to others. Yet, our God overflows with steadfast love and faithfulness. 

Bless the LORD, O my soul!
