Daily Fountain 2017 - God's Mercy

Sunday February 5

Bible Reading:     Psalm 36: 1 - 12

Topic:         God's Mercy

Sinners by their wicked acts show they do not have the fear of God. This is the root of all bitterness - lack of the fear of God.

Verse 2 portrays that the sinner deceives himself by flattering himself. While sinning, he thinks he is doing well, refuses to see the evil and danger of his actions, intimidating his conscience and calling evil good and good evil.

They deceive themselves before the devil deceives them. But one day, they will face reality when they stand before God in judgement.

Contrast this with the sincere heart cry for God to continue His loving kindness to those who know Him and His righteousness to the upright in heart (vs 10).

God's merciful nature should encourage us to come to Him no matter our situation.

If you have not known Him, let His attribute of mercy attract you to Him today because He is able to save you.

If you have already known Him, let this same quality in His Nature keep you attracted to Him that you may serve Him with the rest of your life.

Remember: His mercy and faithfulness reach to the clouds (v. 5)

Father, may Your mercy keep me attracted to You, Amen

Memory verse:   Psalm 36: 11
"Let not the foot of pride come against me and let not the hand of the wicked remove me."
