A sharing by Helen Chang for this song:

At times when I ponder on this issue, I would be lost for words because I do not know of any appropriate words to describe and to express the little I have come to experience of God’s greatness and graciousness! Even so, I have always been amazed at His firmness in keeping to His principles yet at the same time He is responsive to the ways we relate to Him. It means that He has a flexibility within the principle of His all wise dealings with us.

That is why the more I have come to experience Yahweh’s patience and firmness, the more I am in awe of His greatness and meekness at the same time! Observing the ways He dealt with the Israelites in the Old Testament, the ways with which the Lord Jesus expressed his Father’s heart in dealing with the weak, the sinners, these show me the many wonders of Who Yahweh is indeed! Just to focus on the fact that the God of all creation, the perfectly holy One, would stretch out His hand to reach a sinner, how incredible beyond all imagination is His compassion! How I am eternally grateful that “He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities” (Psalm 103:10) as He is granting everyone an opportunity to turn back to Him in repentance! His loving kindness is for the first timer as well as for anyone who has been estranged by hidden sin. Who is like Him indeed!
