GOD ABOUNDS IN MERCY, PATIENCE, GOODNESS AND FAITHFULNESS
But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth. – Psalms 86:15
God has the most wonderful character and His attributes are the best possible. With our limited brains, we cannot comprehend just how big God really is. He is so full of compassion, that there is no limit to it; there is enormous grace in our Lord and He truly gives grace after grace, every day to every single one of us. Only because of God’s great Compassion, are the earth and all upon it still in existence.
God has abundant mercy for us all. He does not punish us as we deserve, because He is full of compassion. He sees the good in every single one of us and gives us chance after chance to repent, straighten up and be right standing with Him. Once we know that something is a sin, we cannot continue doing it, without being in danger to be destroyed by it. God is the truth itself, and He keeps His word. We can count on His promises as being the truth and if we sincerely love Him, we start to hate sin.
Dear Father God, thank You so very much for the compassion and grace You pour over me every day. I am so blessed to be covered by Your love and mercy. Please help me be more obedient to You and glorify You in all that I am and do. Thank You for revealing to me Your truth and for being so patient with me. Help me to become what You created me to be and accomplish the great plan You have for me. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen
