The LORD has chosen Zion, He has desired it for His dwelling. Psalm 132:13

The Lord is slow to anger!

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.” Ps. 103:8
David the psalmist of Israel, who penned these beautiful words faced tremendous hardship and deep troubles, but the testimony of his life was that He looked back and recounted the compassion and grace that the Lord expressed towards His people and he looked forward to the coming prophesied Redeemer, who was to personify the over-abounding, loving-kindness and tender mercies to all His people. He also lay on his bed and meditated on the gracious acts of God and His tenderness towards all children of men.
When difficulties arise in our lives and we are beset on every side with hardships and trials – we need to adopt the attitude of David in His many psalms of praise and thanksgiving – who reflected on God’s past goodness; rejoiced in His future promises and blessed the Lord for all the benefits that He bestows on us day by day – for the Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in loving-kindness. 
Prayer
Bless the Lord o my soul and all that is within me bless Your holy name, for you have pardoned and healed me, forgiven and redeemed me, crowned me with loving-kindness and great compassion – for all that I have and am and ever hope to be, rests only on the merit of the Lord Jesus, Who gave His life for me, that I might live my life in Him, in Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN.
