Mercy Please!

August 20, 2016

Psalm 17:2 NLT

Declare me innocent, for you see those who do right.

The late Dr. J. Vernon McGee says this in his commentary about this verse:

“I don’t know about you, but I am not asking for justice from God; I am asking for mercy. What most of us need from Him is mercy.”

Brothers if I can be honest; this convicted down to my soul.

How often I am so quick to ask for justice. To declare my way to God as the right way, while others are wrong. Men I couldn’t be farther from a pure heart.

How quick I forget my sinful nature. How quick I forget how desperate I am for God’s mercy. How quick I am to forget that I did nothing to receive my salvation. Absolutely nothing I did, nothing I had control over brought me salvation and eternal life with Jesus Christ.

Everything was God. Everything was paid for by Jesus Christ. I am nothing, and I am ashamed of the way I think and handle situations.

I want the heart and mind of Christ. I need God’s mercy.
