Mercy

TODAY’S VERSE
Yet he was merciful and forgave their sins.
Psalms 78:38 (NLT)

TODAY’S THOUGHT
We take God’s forgiveness for granted. We don’t fully appreciate His mercy. Why? Because, we don’t see our behavior from His point of view. If we did, we would be utterly amazed at His grace. Listen to what the Psalmist wrote of the children of Israel in today’s passage. He wrote, “Despite his wonders, they refused to trust him. All they gave him was lip service; they lied to him with their tongues. Their hearts were not loyal to him. Oh, how often they rebelled against him in the wilderness and grieved his heart in that dry wasteland. Again and again they tested God’s patience and provoked the Holy One of Israel. They did not remember his power and how he rescued them from their enemies. They did not remember his miraculous signs in Egypt.” How much of this could be said of us? And yet, in the midst of all this rebellion is today’s verse, “He was merciful and forgave their sins!” Today, marvel in His love, mercy, forgiveness and grace He extends to you.

TODAY’S PRAYER
Dear Father, how I have rebelled against You. How ungrateful I am of all You have done for me. How easily I have forgotten Your mercies. Forgive me! Today, I come with thanksgiving for Your love and grace toward me. I exalt You, Lord, for Your forgiveness. In Jesus’ name.
AMEN

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
