Please read Psalm 98, 99, 100, 102, and 104. I’m back to the NKJV for the familiarity of these favorites. What stands out to you this morning?
“You answered them, O Lord our God; You were to them the God-Who-Forgives, though You took vengeance on their sins” (psalm 99:8 NKJV)
This verses specifically references Moses and Aaron. God was always forgiving, always faithful, always desiring to restore. Sometimes we say “the God of the Old Testament” and the “God is the New Testament”, but that’s wrong – it’s not 2 different gods. God was and is always the same. If the writers of the psalms (David, Solomon, Moses, Asaph, Ethan and others), judged God kind and forgiving, we must accept their wisdom – they LIVED THROUGH the rough years of the Old Testament, and still judged God to be loving and worthy of our worship.
Thank You Lord!
