Bible Verse for Today
Remember, o LORD, your tender mercies, and your loving kindness, for they are from of old. (Psalm 25:4)
David as a King and a human being knows he is not free of sin, we are bound to make mistakes.
He [David] was conscious of this and he seeks God and plea for mercy. He has some way misused his power as a king, he snatched someone else’s wife, and he caused the death of the husband.
David must have thought over these things and seen that God is not happy with him. The best thing to do is to beg. Psalm 25:11 “For Your name’s sake, O Lord, pardon my iniquity, for it is great.” We shouldn’t be arrogant. God needs our submission – we should humbly seek him for mercy.
God forgives but not just that, he teaches the sinners his ways also. He doesn’t want us to go back to our sin so he teaches us what to do, and how to overcome temptations. Psalm 25:8 “Good and upright is the Lord; therefore he instructs sinners in his ways.”
He wants to give us power over sin. Act 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
God had already told us that he would have mercy on whom he will have mercy. Romans 9:15 “For he says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”
