God’s Loyal Love

        God
        Of all,
        Divine
        Spirit of our

        Only
        You

        Loyal
        Love.
        Only You

        East is from the West.

Psalm 103:1-12 (NET)
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
With all that is within me, praise his holy name!
Praise the Lord, O my soul!
Do not forget all his kind deeds!
He is the one who forgives all your sins,
who heals all your diseases,
who delivers your life from the Pit,
who crowns you with his loyal love and compassion,
who satisfies your life with good things,
so your youth is renewed like an eagle’s.
The Lord does what is fair,
and executes justice for all the oppressed.
The Lord revealed his faithful acts to Moses,
his deeds to the Israelites.
The Lord is compassionate and merciful;
He is patient and demonstrates great loyal love.
He does not always accuse,
and does not stay angry.
He does not deal with us as our sins deserve;
He does not repay us as our misdeeds deserve.
For as the skies are high above the earth,
so his loyal love towers over his faithful followers.
As far as the eastern horizon is from the west,
so He removes the guilt of our rebellious actions from us.


For Prayer and Reflection:
Is there a word, a phrase, or an image that stands out to you? What else do you notice as you and Jesus stay with that?

What kind deeds of Jesus come to your mind as you listen? Or, what is it about God’s loyal love that captivates you?

What comes to mind when you consider God’s justice?
