SURROUNDED BY MERCY

READ:
Psalm 32


He who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
-Psalm 32:10

READ BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Psalm 120-122
1 Corinthians 9

It was almost impossible not to see the giant billboard with the red background and huge white letters that shouted: “This year thousands of men will die from stubbornness” Later I learned that the billboard was one of the hundreds just like it targeted at middle age men who typically avoid routine medical screenings and often die from preventable conditions.
Psalm 32 deals with the spiritual disease of sin, which can be treated by honest acknowledgement and repentance. The first five verses express the anguish of hiding our guilt and then celebrate the joyful release of confessing our transgressions to God and being forgiven.
This psalm goes on to show that the Lord longs for us to seek His help in difficulty (vv.6-8) and receive His guidance. “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go, I will guide you with my eye” (v.8). We are hindered, though, when we stubbornly refuse to follow His direction and repent from our sin.
God’s word urges us, “Do not be like the horse or like the mule,...which must be harnessed with bit and bridle, else they will not come near you” (v.9). Rather than hold on to our sin, the Lord offers an alternative.When we humbly confess, His mercy shall surround us (v.10). – David McCasland
Heavenly Father, help us now
At Thy feet to humbly bow:
Take away all thought of sin,
Make us clean and pure within. - Bartels

The first step to receiving God’s forgiveness is to admit that we need it.

VICTORY OVER ENEMIES II
Open Heavens
for Wednesday, March 12, 2014
by Pastor E.A Adeboye

VICTORY OVER ENEMIES II

Paul in Philippians 3:10 prayed earnestly:
“That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death;”
One wonders what prompted the apostle to pray this type of prayer! It may be, as we shall shortly see, that he...More
The cliché “a God of love” who shows leniency...
The Good Seed

The cliché “a God of love” who shows leniency...

Our God is a consuming fire.
Hebrews 12:29

The cliché “a God of love” who shows leniency regarding the shortcomings of so-called “good people” (if they indeed exist) is commonly used. In an absolute sense, however, it is incorrect.

It is true that God has revealed Himself as...More
