Psalm 78:38-39 are very special verses to me. As a recovering perfectionist, I usually can beat myself up 150% times better than my own worst enemy when I fail.

Sometimes I wonder why God doesn’t turn me into His own personal punching bag, too. I’ve definitely given Him enough reasons to do it.

But that’s not the God we’re blessed to call Father. And like a loving Father, when we come to Him in repentance, He welcomes us with open arms.

Why?

Because He loves His children—and He knows their frailties.

“But He, being full of compassion, forgave their iniquity, and destroyed them not: yea, many a time turned He His anger away, and did not stir up all His wrath. For He remembered that they were but flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.” Psalm 78:38-39

Oh, I love these verses. I may forget that I’m human, but God never does.

Because of that, He is merciful. And loving. And gracious.

When we fall, He forgives us and picks us up.

When we stumble, He takes us by the hand and lovingly leads us back where we should go.

When we deserved death, God gave us life.

Why?

Because God never forgets that He loves us.
