Lord, Have Mercy On Us.

We need His mercy every moment of every day of our lives.  There is no time in our life when we can get by without God's mercy.  Mercy is showing kindness to someone undeserving.  Are we undeserving of God's mercy?  I think so but evidently He doesn't think so because we are showered with it all the time, deserving or not.  What do you think?  I would like to do a little study about His mercy, so let's begin, I think it will be very rewarding.

Isaiah 54:7  "For a moment I have forsaken you, But with great mercies I will gather you."  He doesn't leave us, we leave Him."  This verse says, His mercies are great, He wants to gather us to Him. So, why don't we let Him?

Isaiah 55:3  "Incline your ear, and come to Me, Hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you--The sure mercies of David."  His mercies are sure.

1 Peter 1:3 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead."  He has abundant mercy.

Psalms 25:6  "Remember, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your loving kindnesses.  For they are from of old."  His mercies and loving kindnesses are from way back, so let's not forget to ask for His tender mercy towards us.

Lamentations 3:22,23  "Through the Lord's mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning.  Great is your faithfulness."

In Psalms 136, every verse says that His mercy endures forever.  You can read it.  It is because of His great faithfulness that we are here and His mercies are applied new every morning.  Shouldn't we thank Him for His tender mercies that He applies toward us every morning.  I think we should be more than thankful, for we know not what the day may bring and we need His tender mercies, new every morning.  May God bless you with His tender mercies.  Grandma Joan
