Grandmothers Assurance

Psalm 103

I love this psalm!

We praise God for who He is, not for what He has done, but this psalm reminds us of all that He has done for us.

Forgiveness, healing, redemption, love, satisfaction,and perpetual youth. And that's just in the first stanza. The most amazing thing is His love for us - His graciousness towards us.

His unfailing love for us can be the foundation of all our beliefs. He mentions it again in John 3:16. Read it, but insert your name for "the world" and "whosoever." This is personal. God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.
The Lord's love is with those who fear him and his righteousness with their children's children--with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
This is His promise to grandparents. He promises to love my grandchildren. His love is unfailing to all generations.

Father, God,

Help us to train up our children and our children's children in Your law and Your love. Keep us faithful stewards of Your righteousness.
In Jesus' most precious name.
