A Kick in the Guts - A Different Perspective - July 23

A Kick in the Guts

by Berni Dymet

Psalm 103: 8,17 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him...

Have you ever had someone kick you in the guts - you know, that sense that you've had the stuffing knocked out of you. People, circumstances, and then - then the world seems like such a bleak place.

I was just spending some time this morning praying for you. May sound weird - but I do, I pray for everybody who hears these short spots. And I just felt to tell you this one thing:

God is merciful and gracious. He's slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The sort of love that never fails. Yeah, but how much does He love me?

Well, here's the answer.

As high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His steadfast love towards those who fear Him. In fact that love is from everlasting to everlasting…for those who fear Him.

As high as the sky, as far as eternity; that's how much He loves us - you and me.

Just thought you might need to hear that today.


Here’s a vital question for you to consider: If you died tonight, would you be ready for eternity? Now, many people know that it’s all about having a simple faith in Jesus Christ. Nothing more, nothing less. But … do you have the sort of faith that Jesus talked about?
