You had to bang on the pipes if you wanted hot water at certain times of the day in our first apartment Outrageous, since we paid all of $40 a month for this 5 flight walk-up. But it was frustrating because it seemed the flow of water was always interrupted at the most inconvenient times.
Psalm 103 says that God’s love and mercy are steadfast. Think about that word. When you desperately need to experience love, it can come from no greater source than Almighty God. And steadfast means, no matter what is going on in your life, you don’t need to bang on the pipes.
Here is a sample:
For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. (Psalm 103:11-13)
