lawlessness and rebellion. The One who could have rightfully say, “Enough is enough!” has chosen to postpone judgment for some. For others, He has decided instead to pour out the full weight of His just wrath on His only Son, Jesus Christ, that His mercy and grace might bring them into a place of forgiveness, righteousness and adoption.
Where are you today in regards to God’s mercy—a grateful child who has received the gift of life he did not deserve or a squatter trespassing on land that is not yours just waiting for the trial date and eventual execution. May the words of Jeremiah help move your thoughts in a profitable direction today.
But this I call to mind,
and therefore I have hope:
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
“The LORD is my portion,” says my soul,
“therefore I will hope in him.”
The LORD is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul who seeks him.
It is good that one should wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD.
(Lamentations 3:21-26 ESV)
