September 25 God’s Compassion To His Own

 The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he understands how weak we are; he knows we are only dust. Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.

The wind blows, and we are gone – as though we had never been here. But the love of the LORD remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children of those who are faithful to his covenant, of those who obey his commandments! (Psa 103:13-18 NLT) You have been in a place of uncertainty before, where you did not know how things will turn out in your life. The Lord is like a father to his children, he is tender and compassionate to those who fear him. One of the most fascinating relationships is between a father and his child. A Father stands in the place of a provider. God desires to provide for your every need and to give you your heart’s desire. David had seen this type of provision and love from God and he exclaims and says God is like a father to his children. In every situation, you ought to continually realize that you have a Father in heaven that is interested in all the details of your life. Besides fatherhood, God is also tender and compassionate to those who fear Him.

Those who fear the Lord see the tenderness of the Lord and His compassion. Life has always been expressed by the word of the Lord as a moment, as a breath, something that disappears as soon as it appears. David says that our days on earth are like grass, like wild flowers, we bloom and die. He says the wind blows and we are gone as though we have been never been here. Life is not something we can easily disregard and live like we will live forever. We all have testimonies of people we have buried, righteous and unrighteous.

This goes to show that our lives are for a moment. We need to rise up and live every day to the full and all to the glory of the Lord. This is the time for you to know that the love of the Lord is with you. Paul says in the Book of Romans that nothing shall separate us from the love of God. The promise is not only to you but also to your children’s children. A lot of insurance companies promise that your family will be looked after when you die, however, there is no guarantee for that. David points us to the Life Assurance of God and this is not to you only but also to your children and not to them only but to their children also. What better inheritance can you leave the next generation? The love of the Lord will give them success and victory in everything.
