It’s bursted in my heart over the last twelve hours or so. I read Psalm 102 in the midst of a problem and some sinful anxiety and doubt, and God gave me miraculous comfort from this deep song in His Scriptures.
Psalm 102 says that the God of Jesus Christ loves to bring dead people to life. He loves to set people who are in bondage to their sins free forever.
We worship an impossibly good Jesus.
From Psalm 102:
“Let this be recorded for a generation to come, so that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord: that He looked down from His holy height; from heaven the Lord looked at the earth, to hear the groans of the prisoners, to set free those who were doomed to die, that they may declare in Zion the name of the Lord, and in Jerusalem His praise.”
God looked down from Heaven just to hear the groans of the prisoners.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God who hears, who cares, who frees.
This is a God of incomparable compassion and unsearchable mercies.
Come and adore Him. Come and be free.
