The Mercy of God
I was nine years old when I learned the mercy of God. It was so amazing to learn that someone could forgive ME from ALL my sin. God has alot of mercy if you think about it. He has so much that He is merciful to everyone and most don’t even know that. I pray for those kind of people everyday. Now the verse that I would say if someone doesn’t believe me when I say He is merciful is Psalm 37:26, He is ever merciful and leadeth; and His seed is blessed .
I would encourage everyone to memorize that verse. I’m even going to try to memorize it myself. One of the biggest ways that He has been merciful to me is, I was full of lies, hatred, and so many more things and when I needed Him the most He was there. I wasn’t even saved yet and I think, “Wow, when I needed a loving, Christian, and forgiving family He was merciful and gave me the family beyond my dreams.”
People may say God isn’t watching or listening to you when you aren’t saved but, I believe He was watching and listening to me before I was even born. He knew me then and has always loved me. He takes good care of me and has a plan for my life.
The verse I needed to hear at the time in my life when I was alone is Luke 18:13, And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes to heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, “God be merciful to me a sinner”. That’s also a very good verse to memorize.
How has God been merciful to you?
I will be glad and rejoice in Thy mercy:
for Thou hast considered my trouble;
Thou hast known my soul in adversities;
Living for Jesus,
