Listen to Psalm 103 or read this poem written by King David.
I will praise the Lord. Deep down inside me, I will praise him. I will praise him, because his name is holy.David speaks from experience here. He knew the righteous anger of God, but he also knew God's love, mercy, and grace. He understood this for his people, Israel, and he understood this personally. Israel turned away from God many times and lived many years without the presence of God as a result of their sin and inability to keep his laws. But God has established a way through his mercy, grace, and love for all to come near, for all to live in his presence forever without the fear of being separated from God ever again.
... The Lord does what is right and fair for all who are beaten down. He told Moses all about his plans. He let the people of Israel see his mighty acts. The Lord is tender and kind. He is gracious. He is slow to get angry. He is full of love. He won't keep bringing charges against us. He won't stay angry with us forever.
... Let everything the Lord has made praise him everywhere in his kingdom. I will praise the Lord.
Everything that has Breath ...
