God’s Abundant Loving-kindness

“I shall make mention of the lovingkindnesses of the LORD, the praises of the LORD, according to all that the LORD has granted us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel, which He has granted them according to His compassion and according to the abundance of His lovingkindnesses” (Isaiah 63:7, nasb).

Recently we were talking on the phone to our son Robby who lives in the Philippines.  At the end of the conversation, he spoke of God’s care for him during a motorcycle accident.  He was on the campus of the missionary children’s school where he and his wife Deanna teach, and another teacher pulled out in front of him in her van not aware of his presence.  Rather than hitting and damaging her car, Robby laid his motorcycle to the ground.  He had scrapes, cuts, bumps and bruises, but was not hurt seriously.  He said, “Mom and Dad, it was wonderful for the Lord to remind me to wear my helmet today.  Without my helmet, I would have been seriously injured.”

We thank the Lord for His loving-kindness in the protection of our son.  Many times we take this for granted.  God is good.  Today, let us thank our heavenly Father for “the abundance of His loving-kindness.”
