God’s Majestic Character

Psalm 145: 8-13a  The LORD is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and rich in love.  The LORD is good to all;  he has compassion on all he has made.  All you have made will praise you, O LORD; your saints will extol you.  They will tell of the glory of your kingdom and speak of your might, so that all men may know  of your mighty acts and the glorious splendor of your kingdom.  Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations.  (NIV)

This psalm is rich in descriptions of our LORD and His wonderful character.

God is graciousPsalm 84: describes this attribute this way “For the LORD God is sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.”   Are you trying to walk in His grace?

God is compassionatePsalm 103:13 “As a father has compassion on his children, so the LORD has compassion on those who fear him;”  Who can you have compassion towards today in Jesus’ name?

God is slow to anger and rich in lovePsalm 86:15 “You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.”  Do you abound in love towards others?

Considering the magnitude of God’s character we are to praise Him and bring Him glory.  His kingdom is eternal and filled with His majesty and splendor.

What will you say or do today that will bring God glory?  Who can you tell of His mighty deeds and acts done for your good?

Looking to Jesus,


Two beautiful cathedrals considered to be magnificent and splendid will seem pale when compared to God’s splendor in heaven. Notre Dame and Sac le Coeur Cathedrals in Paris


One thought on “God’s Majestic Character

  1. Beautiful words Linda, very inspiring and a good reminder to remember the compassion of Christ. I love those two Cathedrals better than any I’ve seen in all the countries I have been to. I do believe that it is because I love the French so much and lived with a French Architect and his family when I was there during my 14th summer. There is a massive, beautiful cathedral in the city center of Krakow, Poland I would say it is the place where I felt closest to God while I was away from home
