Incredible Mercy

August 24 & 25
August 24 – Daily Reading – Psa. 73-77 / Rom. 11
August 25 – NO Daily Reading

GOD SAID:

Psalm 103:11-12 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

   Incredible Mercy describes God’s love for those who trust in Him. God’s grace is Him giving to us what we do not deserve. God’s mercy is Him seeing our sinfulness, and not giving to us what we actually do deserve. I’ve heard people say, I don’t understand why God allowed this or that to happen to me, I don’t deserve it. I understand in the situation what they’re saying, however, I also know that if God gave us what we really deserved, no one could withstand it.

   I love how the Psalmist in today’s passage paints a picture of how awesome the mercy of God is. First, in Psalm 103:11 he says; “For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.” How far is heaven above us? No one really knows. We’ve gone into space, and built giant telescopes that search deep into outer space and not found heaven. That’s how great his mercy is. Then the Author gives us a picture we can grasp. Psalm 103:12 says; “As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.” He could have said north and south, but they meet at some point. If you head North on earth, when you reach a certain point, you start going south. However, if you head east, you will never reach a point when you begin to go west. If you go west, you will never go east. The two never meet. That is how far God has removed our sin from us. They never meet up again. Incredible.

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    When God does something, it’s incredible. He could have pardoned your sin, but kept a list in the books. However, God has forgiven our sin and blotted them out with the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Such incredible mercy from a loving God.


Will you take a moment to say THANKS?

THE WEEK IN REVIEW:

      In life we choose how to invest our time and talent. Our best choice is to invest our lives into God and His kingdom. When we are Invested In Him, He also invests Himself into us. We saw that in:

  • Integrity Above All
  • Israel’s Costly Counsel
  • Iniquity, This Is Serious
  • Intelligence Is?
  • Involved In Worship
  • Incredible Mercy

      Choose to be Invested In Him. You reap dividends that are out of this world.
