I've been reading the book of Acts lately, but for some reason decided to skim through the book of Psalms instead. My last post was on surrendering all to the Lord and it made me think of all the times I've failed Him in this.
Sometimes it's hard to surrender.
As I was skimming through the Psalms I came across this message three times.
It was this,
that His mercy is everlasting.
When we fail, His mercy is everlasting to those who fear Him.
That really hit me.
His mercy is everlasting, never-ending, He will always extend His mercy to those who love and fear Him.
We never have to worry whether this time, this failure, He will turn His back, because He promised His mercy is everlasting to those who fear Him!
I'm so thankful for His mercy.
For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations. Psalm 100:5
For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:11-12
As for man, his days are like grass;
As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
For the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
And its place remembers it no more.
But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear Him. Psalm 103:15-17
