Ask God for Mercy

Do you need God's help in your life? Have situations in life overwhelmed you, and caused you to feel helpless? God's help is available. But, you may say, "I don't deserve God's help. I haven't always done the right thing." It's not about how good you are; it's about how good God is. He is good, and that's the reason God is merciful. Ask God for mercy.

Mercy is God's help for those who don't deserve it. Ask God for mercy. It will come for one reason. God is merciful, and His mercy endures forever. Asking God for mercy is asking Him to be who He is. Those who fear the Lord with reverence know from experience that it's true. Mercy is God's help for you.

"Let those who fear the Lord now say, 'His mercy endures forever" (Psalm 118:4). God's enduring mercy is for those who fear Him. That does not mean that you are frightened by God. It does mean that you hold Him in awe with utmost reverence and respect. He is God, beside whom there is no other.

Those who reject God, and those who refuse to reverence Him, see absolutely no need for His mercy. Unbelief says, "There is no God who will give me mercy." Faith says, "His mercy endures forever." Faith is based upon who God is. He is forever merciful. Ask God for mercy.
