God's Abounding Mercy

Updated on October 5, 2010

God’s Abounding Mercy

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail, they are new every morning, great is your faithfulness.

I say to myself, ‘ The Lord is my portion therefore I will wait for him.’

The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him, it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.”

Lamentations 3:22 - 26


God’s Compassion To Israel


The nation Israel had wandered away from the Lord and followed the evil ways of their neighboring nations. The Israelites had traded the living God for the worthless idols of their neighbors. They had forsaken God the spring of living water and had dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water. They had tremendously hurted God and provoked Him to anger, anger that devastated their nations.

But God’s mercy and compassion to Israel prevails amidst his anger. He has not totally destroyed Israel.He left them with a remnant. Israel was not totally consumed because of the Lord’s great mercy. There were remnants left after the devastation caused by the Babylonian invasion..


God’s Compassion To The World


It is because of the Lord’s never ending mercy and compassion that the modern world is not consumed. Despite of its extreme wickedness. Although the world has produced generations of God mockers, God haters, blasphemers, cursers, adulterers, fornicators, murderers, extremely vile people with callous conscience, the world is not totally destroyed, it is not totally devastated and consumed.

The Lord still shows His mercy and compassion to the people of the world day after day.Each day He still makes the sun shine , He still sends the rains to water fields that there will be harvests to provide food for our table. He still shields the earth from any catastrophic collision with other heavenly bodies. His mercy indeed is fresh every setting of a new day.. Despite that the world has tremendously grown very evil, the Lord is still showing compassion to its inhabitants day after day.


God’s Compassion For Haiti After The Earthquake


The Lord has shown great compassion to the earthquake ravaged Haiti. After the earthquake in Haiti, score of Christian missionary organizations formed relief efforts to help ravaged Haiti start new lives. Various forms of helps both from Christian and non-christian organizations have been poured out into Haiti.. Nowadays almost ten months after the devastating earthquake, Haiti is slowly being rebuilt and finding new beginning.. According to one missionary many nationals of Haiti are finding new hope and salvation in the Lord. The people of Haiti have become more receptive to the Gospel of the Lord JesusChrist.. Amidst Haiti’s devastation. God is pouring out His abounding mercy and compassion to its people.

Amidst the world’s devastating calamities, the Lord’s abounding mercy continue to pour out. There is always hope after the devastation. This is one great reason to rejoice about life, that God is still pouring out His never ending mercies and grace.


As for me I will continue to hope and wait upon the Lord amidst life’s difficulties and trials. For I believe with my whole heart the Lord is faithful to His promises, Amidst life’s distresses and devastating calamities, I will hold on to His great Name for in Him I will find mercy and grace. So I will live one day at a time entrusting each day to His power, love, mercy and grace....

      Cristina, Wonderful! Praise God for His Mercy and COMPASSION towards us! It is by HIS GRACE we are not consumed… I think many forget the flood that destroyed the world because of disobedience. The many natural catastrophic occurrences and earthquakes are real reminders. God is patient and continues to give mankind the opportunity to repent!

      We who have accepted Jesus Christ are supposed to live each day as if He is going to return any moment! We can ALWAYS have HOPE in the LORD! To GOD Be The GLORY!

      Thank you for sharing, In His Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings! God Bless You!

      Hi RevLady it is great to hear from you again. It is very encouraging to read your comment. Thank you for kind comments. Truly we are dependent upon God's mercy and grace every moment of our lives. I continually hold on to God's faithfulness in my life as I live in a community exposed to much risks and danger. Safety indeed is not the absence of danger but the presence of God. Blessings to you and regards.

      You're right. What the devil purposes for destruction God uses for salvation. How many Haitians have heard the gospel as a result of this tragedy? Far more are receptive to the Gospel in the wake of this event. Great hub!
