Mercy

Mercy - an endless flow of undeserved favor from God's hand.

I don't know about you, but I am a dreadfully imperfect human being... in need of God's great mercies every single day of my life.

This song by Gordon Mote is one of my favorite "mercy" songs. I hope it ministers to you, as it always does to me.



It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness (Lamentations 3:22-23).

And David said, I am in a great strait: let me fall now into the hand of the LORD; for very great are his mercies: but let me not fall into the hand of man (1 Chronicles 21:13).

Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old (Psalm 25:6).

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions (Psalm 51:1).

Have mercy upon me, O LORD; for I am weak (Psalm 6:2).

  11. A great post and oh so true, without God's Mercies we are all lost, because We have all sinned and fallen short, but through God's mercies we are saved.
    Have a Blessed Day

  17. Dayle,
    I have never heard this country song before and I just love it. I listen to bluegrass gospel in my car (yes, I'm from New Jersey!) and it is so down to earth and right to the point. Thanks for sharing this for Spiritual Sunday.

    Blessings,
    Jean
