So in this season that my husband and I find ourselves in I am so incredibly thankful for God’s mercies to be new everyday. We are in a season of difficult assignments, many trials and challenges.
‘The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end’ Lamentations 3:22
Now while I have not been walking through these trials as Christlike as I could or should there have been moments when I have handled things much better than I would of in the past which is an indicator of how my heart and mind have been transforming with my spiritual growth.
‘The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.’ Psalm 145:9
Oh PRAISE GOD I am not the person I once was! My heart is so thankful that God saved me from myself and even though I have had moments of weakness, I can repent and turn from those sins and have His mercy everyday!
‘I love the Lord, because he has heard my voice and my pleas for mercy.’ Psalms 116:1
I am so thankful to have peace and know that God is sovereign in all this, that through these difficult assignments we find ourselves in God will be glorified in it all.
‘Have mercy on me O God, according to your steadfast love; according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.’ Psalms 51:1
I am confident and can know that I am loved, a child of God, daughter of a King, who loves me so much He sent His only son to take the punishment for my sins.
‘But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us.’ Ephesians 2:4
Mercy is defined as a compassion or forbearance (refraining from the enforcement of something) shown especially to an offender, a blessing that is an act of divine favor or compassion. Basically not getting what it is you deserve.
I am so thankful to the Lord for His divine compassion in my life, that the Holy Spirit is with me to guide me and convict me and has opened my eyes.
‘Therefore, having this ministry by the mercy of God, we do not lose heart.’ 2Corinthians 4:1
So during this season, where there are some days I need to take each hour as it comes to survive the day I can have comfort and peace in God’s mercies being new everyday.
