Trusting in His Mercy

I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever.

Psalm 52:8b

That is really all we can do.  If it were not for the great mercy of the Lord, I certainly would have been dead long ago.  He loves us and sent His beloved Son to die for our sins.  How often do we forget or ignore Him?  How often do we sin against Him?  How often do we take His mercy and longsuffering for granted?  And yet He still loves us and still shows us mercy.

Lamentations 3:22 tells us that “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not.”.  Our compassions fail often, but His do not.  I am a vile, sinful man, but my God is rich in mercy and I will trust in His mercy for ever.

  1. I love the fact that His compassions are “New” every morning. Great is His faithfulness!!! Rachel


  2. His compassions never fail…what a comforting thing to focus on when we go to Him in prayer, when we are confronted with the nature of our flesh.

    “Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth. Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide. Strength for to day and bright hope for tomorrow…blessings all mine with ten thousand beside!”
