Gods enduring mercy

Today I was sitting here and the keys were moving. I felt God leading me to write about His mercy, and I came across Psalm 136. Although the Lord was leading me to write about this, and to write the whole Psalm, I felt in my heart,"Thats alot to write!" I thought it was just too long to write in my blog, but then God didn't let me off the hook. For the entire day, that has not left my head, my stubborn head that is. God helped me to realize I need to follow Him no matter how long, how wide, or how deep He wants me to go. God's word is for us to read, to think upon, and there are always new verses for us to learn from, new ones that we haven't read yet, and some that we have read, that need repeating for a purpose only God knows. It was selfish of me not to follow His ways and His will today. His mercy is so great. He will wash His mercy over us and through all we go through in these hills and valleys of life His mercy is there. Whether we are hurting, we are in pain, we have a decision to make, we are walking in sin, we have moved away from Him, we are dealing with illness or death. He gives His mercy freely, and lovingly. I am amazed by the mercy He gives me daily. No matter what we are facing, no matter how low or high we are right now, these verses show us just how His mercy touches all that touches us. Please read along. I know it is long, but God's word has no limit, only blessings, healings, teachings, and His great mercy He shares. Throughout this Psalm it reaches all that encompasses our lives. We are never left alone. When He asks us to lead Him, its for His gain and His glory. "Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the God of gods! For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords! For His mercy endures forever.To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who by wisdom made the heavens, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who laid out the earth above the waters, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who made great lights, For His mercy endures forever-The sun to rule by day, for His mercy endures forever; The moon and stars to rule by night, For His mercy endures forever. To Him who struck Egypt in their firstborn, For His mercy endures forever; And brought out Israel from among them, For His mercy endures forever; With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who divided the Red Sea in two, For His mercy endures forever; And made Israel pass through the midst of it, For His mercy endures forever; But overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who led His people through the wilderness, For His mercy endures forever; To Him who struck down great kings, For His mercy endures forever; And slew famous kings, For His mercy endures forever- Sihon king of the Amorites, For His mercy endures forever; And Og king of Bashan, For His mercy endures forever- And gave their land as a heritage, For His mercy endures forever; A heritage to Israel His servant, For His mercy endures forever. Who remembered us in our lowly state, for His mercy endures forever; And rescued us from our enemies, For His mercy endures forever; Who gives food to all flesh, For His mercy endures forever. Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven! For His mercy endures forever." Psalm 136 God is bigger than any king, any man made god, any problem or hurt we will ever face. If you have lost a loved one, lost a sweet babe, God will bless you for His mercy endures forever. There is nothing He cannot do, there is nothing He cannot bring to be a blessing. Are you trying to figure out who God is? Are you asking questions? Are you confused and afraid? Don't be, allow God to show Himself to you. He is reaching out to you, take His hand, open your heart and let Him in, for His mercy is for everyone, and is everlasting.
