One Sunday Evening my husband and I had the privilege to attend my Sister in law’s church and the Pastor was preaching from Psalms 107 and the title of his sermon was “Oh that men would Praise Him.”
The very 1st verse stuck with me. Psalms 107:1
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
Let’s take a look at this verse.
We are to give thanks to God at all times for He is good. God is so good. We are to be thankful in the Good times and the bad as well because he is God and he is good.
This is the part that I like. What does Mercy mean? Mercy means to have a Compassion Treatment. When I think of Endures, I believe of keeping going, lasting, being patient, being persistent, staying the course.
Let’s take that verse and word it different ways.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. For his Compassion keeps going forever.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his Compassion is patient forever.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his Compassion lasts forever.
Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For his Compassion is persistent forever.
Think about that today. What a great God that does not give up on his Children and that his Compassion keeps going, is patient, persistent, lasts forever.
Today’s Prayer: Lord Jesus we thank you that your mercy lasts forever and that you have not given up on us. We stumble and fall but your great compassion that you have is so patient, and you pick us up when we fall. We thank you!
