Pardoned Healed Redeemed and Crowned
He pardons all your iniquities, he heals all your ills. He redeems your life from destruction, he crowns you with kindness and compassion. Ps.103:3,4
Psalm 103 is a beautiful self portrait of God. Whenever I get a bit fuzzy about who God is, this is where I go to be reminded, to have my vision of Him refocused.
Today I am reminded God is one who pardons, heals, redeems and crowns. What a beautiful Advent promise for me to savour.
Thank you Jesus that You forgive me my sins, that You heal me of my brokenness, that You have paid the price for me to gain eternal life and that You crown me with the title of "Son of the King".
