SCRIPTURE

“I am the Lord, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed.

~Malachi 3:6, NLT

QUOTE

God is more willing to pardon than to punish. Mercy does more multiply in Him than sin in us. Mercy is His nature.

~Thomas Watson

God is infinite in all His attributes and let us all give thanks that He is merciful. Psalms 100:5 reads…”For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endures to all generations.” Jeremiah said in his Lamentations…”The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” We need mercy like fish need water, we would be destroyed in a heartbeat if God’s mercies were to cease for a moment.

Jacobs sons were liars, outlaws, hooligans, thugs, murderers, rapist; there were as vile as the Canaanite natives. Joseph stood head and shoulders above them. He distinguished himself from them in his behavior. He became their savior and lord but he had made a decision to forgive prior to revealing himself to his brothers. This bunch deserved to be impaled on a pole. They had wronged Joseph and lied to their father. Joseph was merciful. Otherwise the sons of Jacob would have been consumed. Give thanks for God’s mercies which are new everyday. We could not survive a part from His mercy.

I am thinking about the song Tyler sings…“…God of mercy, sweet love of mine; I have surrendered to Your design.
May this offering stretch across the skies, and these Halleluiahs be multiplied!…”
