The mercy of God

(Charles Spurgeon)

"I trust in the mercy of God forever and ever!" Psalm 52:8

Meditate a little on the mercy of God.

It is tender mercy. With gentle, loving touch, He heals the broken in heart, and binds up their wounds. He is as gracious in the manner of His mercy--as in the matter of it.

It is great mercy. There is nothing little in God; His mercy is like Himself--infinite. You cannot measure it. His mercy is so great--that it forgives great sins of great sinners, after great lengths of time; and then gives great favors and great privileges, and raises us up to great enjoyments in the great Heaven of the great God!

It is undeserved mercy, as indeed all true mercy must be, for deserved mercy is only a misnomer for justice. There was no right on the sinner's part, to the saving mercy of the Most High God. Had the rebel been doomed at once to eternal fire--he would have justly merited the doom; and if delivered from wrath, sovereign love alone has found a cause, for there was none in the sinner himself.

It is rich mercy. Some things are large--but have little efficacy in them--but this mercy is:
  a cordial to your drooping spirits;
  a golden ointment to your bleeding wounds;
  a heavenly bandage to your broken bones;
  a royal chariot for your weary feet;
  a bosom of love for your trembling heart!

It is manifold mercy. As Bunyan says, "All the flowers in God's garden are double." There is no single mercy. You may think you have but one mercy--but you shall find it to be a whole cluster of mercies.

It is abounding mercy. Millions have received it--yet far from its being exhausted, it is as fresh, as full, and as free as ever!

It is unfailing mercy. It will never leave you. If saved by sovereign mercy--mercy will be . . .
  with you in temptation--to keep you from yielding;
  with you in trouble--to prevent you from sinking;
  with you in living--to be the light and life of your countenance; and
  with you in dying--to be the joy of your soul when earthly comfort is ebbing fast!

"I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever!" Psalm 89:1
