VAU: Psalm 119:41-48: “Let thy mercies (loving kindness) come also unto me, O Lord, even thy salvation, according to thy word.
So shall I have wherewith to answer to him that reproacheth me; for I trust in they word.
And not take the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in they judgments (justice).
So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever. And I will walk at liberty (in a wide place); for I seek thy precepts.
I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings,and will not be ashamed.
And I delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate on thy statutes.”
As God gave us the greatest gift ever given, the gift of his only Son. This was the ultimate display of his mercy toward us, his creation. So many scriptures declare and expound on the wondrous mercies of God.
But you know that mercy was not only in the past, that mercy was not just for yesterday but is is for today and for your tomorrow.
God’s mercy is there so that the enemy can not destroy us before we are saved and then his mercy is there to cover every mistake and shortcoming along the way, and that grace and mercy covers us all the more!
Think about this passage today: Lamentations: 3:21-23: “THIS I recall to my mind, therefore HAVE I HOPE.
It is of the Lord’s mercies THAT WE ARE NOT CONSUMED, BECAUSE HIS COMPASSIONS FAIL NOT (his compassion is always toward us).
They (his mercies)ARE NEW EVERY MORNING.”
So every single day God mercy and grace are brand new and no matter what happened yesterday or how he delivered and helped you that day, TODAY is brand new and he will also again help you, deliver you, and keep you in him!
Let his mercy be your shield knowing that He’s got you in the palm of his hand.
