His mercy surrounds us.

Posted by appolus on July 28, 2021

Psa 32:10  Many sorrows shall be to the wicked: but he that trusteth in the LORD, mercy shall compass him about. 

For the saints, the favor of God is the wellspring of all happiness and blessings as opposed to the wealth and wisdom of the world. It is wise men and women who trust in God and follow His instructions. Blessed is the man in whom there is no deceit. Here the Lord instructs us to be honest in all of our ways, before Him and before men. And if we are, there is a blessing in God. David says that when he kept silent his bones grew old and the hand of God lay heavily upon him causing him to moan and to groan in the midnight hours. His vitality, he says was “turned into the drought of summer. “The solution and the blessings lies in not remaining silent. Speak of Him and His mercy while it is yet day, for in this there is great joy.

He instructs us to acknowledge our sins to Him, and not to “hide” our iniquity. “Confess your transgressions to me,” says the Lord. And in this confession you find wonderful pardon, your feet are washed from the filth of this world. When we do this, we are praying to Him while “He might yet be found.” This is instruction from God. If we do this then even in a flood of great waters, even when the sin of this world rises up like a mighty tsunami, it shall not come near you, for He will have raised you up to higher ground and surrounded with you with songs of deliverance. He shall be to you a hiding place in the day of calamity.

He instructs us not to be like the horse or the mule which has no understanding. They require to be harnessed with a bit and a bridle, reigned in so to speak. Rather, simply follow the instructions of our Lord and be led of Him. There is great blessing in this. And finally we are instructed to trust in God. The greatest blessing of them all. Many are the sorrows of those who do not and they are pierced daily with the cares of this world. Death by a thousand cuts. Yet for those who trust in Him, they are surrounded by mercy. Their hearts are glad and they shout for joy. Let your hearts be glad today brothers and sisters. Trust in the Lord and be instructed by His Word and by the Spirit of God. In this you shall see that goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life.
