[QTVOTD] Who is a God like You?!

“Who is a God like You, Who forgives iniquity and passes over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He retains not His anger forever, because He delights in mercy and loving-kindness.” Micah 7:18 ->me: Reading this verse it is interesting that Micah’s name means ‘Who is like Yah[weh]?’.  The ‘remnant of His heritage’ is the people of Israel (also includes me as one grafted into the vine).  Iniquity = poor and/or grossly unfair behavior (God forgives my stupid behavior).  Transgression = an act that goes against a law, rule, or code of conduct; an offense (God looks over me and sees His Son Who paid my penalty).  My God does not stay upset or angry at me…why?  Because he actually enjoys doling out mercy and loving-kindness toward me.  Why does God give me this forgiveness?  Psalms 130:4 tells me – “But there is forgiveness with You [just what I need], that You may be reverently feared and worshiped.”
