God's Love and Forgiveness

I think we often wonder , when God looks at our hearts, whether He can really love us. Rev. David Wilkerson of World Challenge recently addressed that question. He realizes that many fail to appropriate God's great love for us. He writes, "from cover to cover, the Bible speaks of how loving and tender our Father's heart is toward us. Scripture says of the Lord again and again:

--He is ready to forgive at all times - Psalm 86:5

--He is patient with us, full of tenderness and mercy - Psalm 119:156

--He is slow to anger - Joel 2:13"

My images this week are from Psalm 103. Take time to read and absorb its wonderful promises.
