He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities. 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. (Psalm 103:10-12 ESV)
The Lord has an immense capacity to forgive over and over again. Every believer is at a different level of faith, but his love is the same for all “who fear him.” I like to imagine God constantly working around the world to build the faith and character of each saint. The sound of an orchestra sounds chaotic when musicians individually practice by themselves. But when the conductor stands before them, they all become silent fixing their eyes on him, waiting to take his lead.
Just like a conductor, Jesus sees an orchestra of saints where he points to one to build up his faith with an answered prayer. For another, he heals her wounds. And for the stubborn, he disciplines him until he repents. The artful Maestro works with every believer around the world and never gets tired. And when they pray to him, I like to imagine that he hears a symphony of worship where the entire church is praising him, giving thanks, and requesting his help wherever it is needed.
The melodies he hears are beautiful to him, especially when the spirits of everyone are singing in unison. And I also think that he enjoys the solos too because they worship with broken and contrite hearts, appealing to his love and grace.
As a saint, you are a part of his great orchestra called the church. He sees and hears you and calls you by name. And he takes pleasure knowing that you are worshipping and serving in his family. Today, I encourage you to sing with your heart to God. Make a melody of prayer that reaches his ears because he loves it when he hears from you!
