GROW God’s Mercy Pt. 1
“5 For You, Lord, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You.” Psalm 86:5 NKJV
I remember as a child, when we were wrestling or having tickle attacks and you wanted someone to stop. We would yell out “Mercy!!”, then they would stop, out of kindness. That is the kind of mercy, we are talking about here in this verse except its better. The mercy we see here is out of goodness, kindness, love and faithfulness. It confirms what we already know about God, He is willing to forgive us. Yet patient to wait for us to be willing to ask for forgiveness. When it comes to asking for forgiveness, God abundantly pours His mercy upon us by forgiving us when we confess to Him.
God’s abundant mercy is a quality we can offer to those who ask for our forgiveness. How willing are to you offer this kind of mercy? I know that is a question, I need to ask myself.
In His Love, Crisi
