Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Psalm 103:12, which says,

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us.

I don’t think we really understand just how amazing god’s forgiveness is toward us.  We tend to take for granted the mercy that He constantly displays in our lives daily.  It is necessary for us to keep in our minds that, all that we do deserve in terms of His judgment, and stand in awe of the fact that He does not give it to us.  This should make us stand awestruck that His steadfast love overshadows what we truly deserve.

As David boldly declares when he speaks of forgiveness in terms of the LORD taking our sins and places them as far away as the sunrise in the east, to as far away as to where the sunsets in the west.  His awesomeness should ignite in us uncontrollable praise and thanksgiving.  It is staggering to know that holy, Righteous and Just God is so compassionate and loving to those who constantly fail Him daily.  That is why David began this psalm with enraptured excitement at the reality of God’s amazing love, grace and mercy for His own.    Have a great day!

May the LORD bless you and keep you.
