Sunday's Psalm -Psalm 103-


Psalm 103: 17-18 says,
"But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children's children,
to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments."

What a precious promise! What a joy to read this and know that is God's inspired Word speaking to us.
I love what John Calvin (1) has to say regarding these verses;
"By taking our children's children into His care, He shows how precious to Him is our Salvation"
He is the God of the Covenant and  He wisely rules over us, making us able, through Christ's Saving Grace, to "respond to His calling with faith and prayer to the Covenant of Grace".

But we must remember, He expects us to remember. Remember the Sabbath to keep it holy and remember to do His commandments. Calvin says,

"Many are quick to talk about God's laws, but their feet are slow and their hands are heavy when it comes to the reality of spiritual service"

So, today, I found myself pondering about this, it seems so simple...remember...and even to do so, I need Him, I cannot do it myself. I forget; and being forgetful will not lead me to a godly life under the covenant.

Let us remember this day His commandments.

Let us rejoice in them.

Let us rejoice in the Lord of the Covenant, who delights to take care of our children's children!

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."


“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”
