Experience The Mercy Of God
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for December 3, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.”
Lord our God, we thank you that you let light shine out every day and every year. Thank you that we may always look to you, whose right hand will bring order into everything and set all things right, even in difficult times. May our hearts receive strength to persevere and go on praising you, for you remain, no matter what happens on earth. You are our God, you have sent us the Savior, and we can draw close to you. You have made us the firm promise that your day is coming when truth and justice will arise on earth to the glory of your name. May the hearts of many people turn to you so that they worship you and call to you for help, to the glory of our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.
Daily Commentary: We, who sit in the darkness of sin have been saved by the mercy of God. It is this mercy that allows us to come to God and ask for forgiveness. You see, God is mercy. In Psalm 111:4, we see this is action, “He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the LORD is gracious and compassionate..”
Mercy and compassion go together. But truth is the glue that binds us to the Lord. God’s mercy comes from His truth and the truth that s what sets us free. He is everything we need to live a fruitful life and we trust in His grace.
We know we do not deserve His love nor do we deserve to be pardoned for our sins but the grace and mercy of the Lord know no boundaries. How do we come to God. We find it in Hebrews 4:16, “ Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
This is important to note that we shouldn’t be ashamed to approach God for He loves us so much. Finally, in Psalm 103:8-9, we find out why God is compassionate and filled with mercy. “The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever.”
Remember that the next time you need mercy in your own life.
