Eternal mercy

August 17

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 107 – 108

Verse of the Day: Psalm 107:1 – “O give thanks unto Jehovah; For he is good; For his lovingkindness endureth for ever.”

We now enter the final section of the Psalms. The last 44 songs are considered to be like the fifth book of the Law – Deuteronomy. These psalms deal with Scripture and Praise.

In our verse for today, the Hebrew word chêsêd can be translated as lovingkindness, love, mercy, goodness or devotion. Any of these translations work in this particular place. It appears in the first verse and the last verse of this Psalm. One could say that the song opens and closes with this concept.

What does this mean to us? God is always ready and willing to forgive and restore those who call upon Him. Today would be a good day to call out to Him for His mercy and goodness.

Prayer: I praise You for Your mercy, grace, forgiveness and restoration. May Your Name be praised. Amen.
