Psalm 103:11-13 ends with this – “He knows our frame. He remembers that we are dust.” How astounding is it that “He remembers.….”! Why on EARTH should He “remember” anything about our predicaments??? That’s a CHOICE on His part. He chooses to remember.
And what does He remember in this particular verse? That we are dust.
Consider what level of expectation we have toward dust. Not much
He remembers with compassion – “They are dust. I remember that. I love them. I do not expect of them. I will not abandon them.”
