True Mercy Is a Blessing
Read: PSALM 106:1-6, 43-48
“Many times he delivered them, but they were rebellious in their purposes, and were brought low through their iniquity. Nevertheless he regarded their distress when he heard their cry” (vv. 43-44).
These verses tell us that God showed mercy to the Israelites over and over. Despite this, they rebelled and sinned against God over and over. Then God would start the cycle all over again by offering mercy.
This reminded me of a song called “Over and Over” sung by Reverend Milton Brunson and the Thompson Community Singers. It sings of how God blesses us “over and over and over.” It reminds me that we don’t always acknowledge mercy as a blessing. We will always be in need of mercy; may we see it for the great blessing it is.
Lord, thank you for the blessing of your mercies that are new every day! AMEN.
