Have you been feeling overwhelmed or defeated? Does it feel that life has handed you enough stress for the rest of your life? I can honestly say, I have felt that. Just when I think the knot at the end of the rope is about to give way,
God’s mercy is the one constant in my life. His mercies are new every morning.
The Lord can always be trusted to show mercy each morning. Lamentations 3:23 (CEV)
During times of loneliness, feelings of desertion, the incredible responsibility to raise your kids, feeling nothing positive will ever happen, and thinking that God isn’t there, that is when God can meet you right where you are! I know because He has been that for me.
God’s mercy never stops. His love, His compassion, His forgiveness, and His faithfulness never changes because He is merciful.
When I am feeling discouraged, it is God’s promises in Scripture that help me to get up and start moving again. When I start to doubt and get frustrated, I have to hold on and realize life has many changes, but God never does. I want to share some verses that I pray will do the same for you.
- He gave mercy in Moses’ day, and He still does today.
Then he passed in front of Moses and called out, “I am the Lord God. I am merciful and very patient with my people. I show great love, and I can be trusted. Exodus 34:6 (CEV)
- He is True
But you, the Lord God, are kind and merciful. You don’t easily get angry, and your love can always be trusted. Psalm 86:15 (CEV)
- He is Love
You are merciful, Lord, You are kind and patient and always loving. Psalm 145: 8 (CEV)
- He Understands
We have a great high priest, who has gone into heaven, and he is Jesus the Son of God. That is why we must hold on to what we have said about him. Jesus understands every weakness of ours, because he was tempted in every way that we are. But he did not sin! So whenever we are in need, we should come bravely before the throne of our merciful God. There we will be treated with undeserved kindness, and we will find help. Hebrews 4:14-16 (CEV)
- The best news! He died for us to give us abundant life and eternal life.
God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die. John 3:16 (CEV)
