(Arthur Pink, “God’s Loving-kindness” April, 1948)
Scripture speaks of “the multitude of His loving kindnesses!” (Isaiah 63:7) And who is capable of numbering them?
Said the Psalmist, “How excellent is your loving-kindness, O God!” (Psalm 36:7) No pen of man, no tongue of angel, can adequately express it.
We read of God’s “marvelous loving-kindness!” (Psalm 17:7) And surely it truly is!
David prayed, “Display the wonders of Your loving-kindness!” Wondrous it truly is—that One so infinitely above us, so inconceivably glorious, so ineffably holy, should not only deign to notice us—but set His heart upon us, give His Son for us, and send His Spirit to indwell us.
Well then, may we exclaim, “Your loving-kindness is better than life!” (Psalm 63:3)
Instead of a river, God often gives us a brook–which may be running today, and dried up tomorrow.
To teach us not to rest in our blessings–but in the blesser Himself.
“Hold me up–and I shall be safe!” Psalm 119:117
“So do not fear–for I am with you! Do not be dismayed–for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with My righteous right hand!” Isaiah 41:10
