Don’t Take Mercy for Granted

Mercy is not something I can afford to take for granted. I should have an IV of mercy hooked up to me, I need God’s mercy so often. I have fallen so hard, so often, despite how desperately I want to love and serve and please the Lord, that I wonder sometimes why God hasn’t given up on me. And I wonder how He can entrust me with ministering to people and caring for special needs and senior rescued dogs when I am capable of hurting and harming them in ways unimaginable. And I have done both, which breaks my heart. Yes, I fall.

Sometimes I feel like I fall more than I stand. But alas, through the years, I have learned to do more standing than falling. I just can’t stand the falls. But that is when I must remember that God’s mercy is new every morning. He is there to forgive me so long as I repent and seek His forgiveness. Oh, how I thank God for His mercy.

Do you take God’s mercy for granted as I once did? Or do you thank Him for it? We all need God’s mercy, and none of us deserves His mercy. Yet there He remains offering it to us if only we will repent and return to Him, if only we will confess our sins and seek and receive His forgiveness through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ who died to pay the penalty for our wickedness. Seek and receive God’s mercy, and don’t forget to thank Him for it. Don’t take His mercy for granted. How blessed we are to have His mercy that never runs out (Psalm 136:2). 

Lam 3:21  This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. 

Lam 3:22  It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 

Lam 3:23  They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. 

Lam 3:24  The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. 
Lam 3:25  The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. 
Lam 3:26  It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
