Psalms 103:17-18 (KJV) But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children;To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
The goodness of man is sporadic. Sometimes seasonal or occasional. Mostly conditional.
Even if he would be good for a life time, his breath will disappear someday.
But the mercy of God spans over generations, from everlasting to everlasting. His love lasts over a lifetime through eternity.
…the mercy of God isn’t good for only one day or week or year. His mercy begins at conception and lasts throughout your lifetime and into the next.
– T.D. Jakes (Strength For Every Moment)
That’s very deep and profound!
Lord, how mind-blowing and comforting to know that Your mercy will endure all through my lifetime till eternity! For this I am eternally grateful. Please help me to bank all my life on Your steadfast love from today. Amen.
