In my Bible, written in tiny print under Psalm 103, I read this commentary: “What God does for us tells us what he is really like.”
What is He really like?
What does He do for us?
I find I’m so happy to read once again the action of God on our behalf. God is really a God who forgives all your sins (not some of them), who heals you (if not now, in eternity), who redeems your life and covers you with love and compassion, and who “satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.”
He satisfies our desires with good things! Good things!
What a beautiful psalm to remind us what God is really like. His love is so great, His forgiveness so vast, and His goodness so perfectly matched to our desires.
