“I will sing of the mercies of the LORD for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations.” – Psalm 89:1 (KJV)
Singing and making melodies to God is the duty of the children of God. No wonder His Word says, “let everything that has breath praise the Lord” (Psalm 150:6). Our praises should be led by the Spirit of God for them to be accepted by God (Ephesians 5:18–20). If the psalmist sang of the mercies of the Lord, it is in the right direction that born-again Christians should also sing of the mercies of God. The mercy of God is an aspect of His love that causes Him to help the miserable.
Beloved, it is because of the mercies of God that we are not consumed (Lamentations 3:22). Thus, in this month of joy, sing of His mercies every day because some have passed on to glory while others have died without accepting Jesus Christ, yet we are alive. Sometimes God does not punish us the way we deserve when we sin or go astray from His laws.
Beloved, God has enough mercies to cover our wrongs and protect us from the evil one, who accuses us before God day and night. His mercies found Saul and converted him into an apostle to preach the gospel—someone who was previously beating Christians and threatening them to abandon their faith in Christ (Acts 9:1–20).
His mercies also found you and me so that today we can joyfully declare that we are the children of God. Let us praise His mercies and He will be available to assist us in time of need. Hallelujah! Glory to God!
Prayer Point: Dear heavenly Father, I’m so grateful for Your mercies. I will always praise You for Your mercies that continue to work in my life every day. I pray that Your mercies will find the lost who need your salvation and will gladly accept Jesus Christ and be saved. Amen!
