February 7

“But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.” Psalm 86:15 (NIV)

We sometimes think that we are having more than our share of problems and difficulties and maybe we tend to complain about it. David, the psalmist, had problems as his life was threatened. What was his reaction? He says, “But”. In contrast to his problems, there was God. We can turn away from looking at our problems and look to God. What a contrast! What kind of God is He? David said He is a compassionate and gracious God. To be compassionate means to feel together with. Yes, our God feels the hurt that we feel and He gives His wonderful grace to help us overcome.
