Psalm 145:8-20 NASB

The LORD is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and great in lovingkindness. 
The LORD is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works.
The LORD sustains all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down.
The LORD is righteous in all His ways, and kind in all His deeds.
The LORD is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth.
The LORD keeps all who love Him.

The Psalmist begins this Psalm with the words, "I will extol You my God, O King; and I will bless Your name forever and ever.  Every day I will bless You, and I will praise Your name forever and ever.  Great is the LORD and highly to be praised; and His greatness is unsearchable."  But even as He extols Him, he experiences Him.  This God who is so beyond us in greatness, is so near to us in grace!  This is what became so evident in the Old Testament time, confirmed in the New Testament time, and recognized in our time.  Our God spans all time and covers us with the same umbrella.  Our cultures may be different, but not the content.  In any time and any place, if you dip your cup into this bowl, it comes up with grace.  Grace!  Grace!  God's grace!  O taste and see that it is good!  I like this God!
