The Mercies of God #394

41  Let Your mercies come also to me, O LORD—Your salvation according to Your word. 42  So shall I have an answer for him who reproaches me, for I trust in Your word. (Psalm 119:41-42)

The mercies of God are not ours to dispense as we see fit. The salvation of God is available to all, but only “according to Your word”. God’s word reveals salvation – not our feelings, opinions and desires. It is the height of presumption to expect God to save sinners in some way other than how His word teaches (Matt. 7:21-23). Trust God’s word to answer every reproach. Be faithful according to His word and the mercies of God will come to you (see Rom. 12:1).
