Daily Lift – March 7th, 2018

For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee (Psalm 86:5).

We could never fully described the goodness
and glory of our God. However, this did
not stop the Psalmist from listing three things
about the Lord that brought him great joy. (1)
He is good. Jesus declared that He alone is good
(Matthew 19:17), and James added that every
good gift is from Him (James 1:17). (2) He
is ready to forgive. How many people do we
know who simply do not want to forgive? God
is known as the God of forgiveness. There must
be a seeking of forgiveness on my part before
there is the giving of forgiveness on His. (3) He
is plenteous in mercy. God is always able to give
to us that which we need. He is rich in mercy
(Ephesians 2:4) and He is just as generous in
pouring out His mercy upon us.
