“The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear Him.” – Psalm 103:17
The psalmist reminds us that we are like a flower quickly fading, here today and gone tomorrow but God’s mercy is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear Him. As human beings, we all tend to commit sin and the one who fears the Lord repents and seeks the forgiveness of God.
When King David committed adultery with Bathsheba, he acknowledged that he sinned against God alone. When the Samaritan woman came to the well for drinking water, she shared about her true genuine situation with Jesus, she did speak truly (John 4:18), and then He gave her The Living Water. The story continues and many of the Samaritans believed in Him because of the word of the woman who testified Jesus. When Paul the apostle had an encounter with God on the Damascus Road, he got converted from the attitude of persecuting Christians to Preaching Christ. The mercy of the Lord was not shortened to any one of the three above, for they feared God and spoke the truth with Him.
‘God’s Mercy is bigger than any of our mistakes or messes.’
