Have mercy on me, O God, because of your unfailing love.
Psalms 51:1 (NLT)
David didn’t try to impress God. He knew he had sinned. He knew he had wandered far from what God wanted him to be or do. And so he came. He came to God with a repentant heart and cried out to God. He knew that God would not refuse a broken and contrite spirit of humility, so he came to God and said the only thing he could say, “Have mercy on me.” Mercy. What a word. Mercy. God’s divine favor. God’s forbearance. God’s compassion. The acting out of God’s unfailing love. It is God’s unfailing love for David that allowed Him to have mercy. It was God’s unfailing love for David that restored him and brought him back from the brink of despair. This is the same love He has for you. Today, God’s unfailing love is focused on you. This is your moment. This is your destiny. This is your opportunity to have all the mercy you will ever need. Come with a contrite heart to God, His unfailing love is waiting.
Dear Father God, thank You that in all Your Magnificence You have ordained to have an unfailing love for me. I cannot fathom it, but today I accept it. I open my heart to receive it. Have mercy on me, dear Lord, and fill me with Your unfailing love. In Jesus’ name, I pray. AMEN
