In a topsy-turvy fashion his passion is to pour out blessings on me the sinner

Micah 7:18 – Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry for ever but delight to show mercy.

WHO IS LIKE YOU?

Our God pardons our sins, choosing to be merciful, wiping the slate clean, turning a blind eye to the sins of our past when at last we bow our knee, confessing our need for his forgiveness, repenting of our lives of sinfulness and asking him to take control, to open our hearts and make us whole, our God who is like no other who gives us the strength to be more than a conqueror, we are more than survivors, called to be God’s own revivers, God’s own fire, inspiring me to aspire to greater intimacy, to spend time with God, just him and me, to hear his voice, to know it’s him, to seriously seek the gifts he brings,  there is no other like my God who does not stay angry forever despite our myriad of failures, his delight to show me mercy and in a topsy-turvy fashion his passion is to pour out blessings on me the sinner, what a thrill, what a joy, that I am forgiven all my transgressions, he is not angry and he shows me his mercy even though I’m not worthy, what greater love could there ever be than Jesus laying down his life for me?
