    God’s Great Mercy

    and had taken captive the women and those who were there, from small to great; they did not kill anyone, but carried them away and went their way.

    1 Samuel 30:2

    I found it interesting; they did not kill anybody, yet when David and his men went out to raid the surrounding cities, they did not leave a single person alive. It was the protection of God over these people. God did not make the people suffer for the sins of David. Even though David had wandered far from the Lord, He still had His hand upon the people under David.

    This is the lesson Paul was teaching when he told the church in Rome: …If God is for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31). God is faithful to us, even when we are not faithful. He has His plan and He will accomplish it, sometimes in spite of us.

    Many times, we are our greatest enemies, because we do not trust in the Lord; we do not believe He will be there for us. Listen, unbelief is the worst thing we can have. God knows our sitting downs, He knows our rising ups; He knows everything about us.

    It is so cool, because you need to be free in Christ. Some people walk around like they are guilty all the time. Yes we fail; yes we trip and fall! David did; all of us do. We have to remember, God is not like man, He is faithful all the time. His love, grace and mercy is not dependent on us or our actions. He loved us even when we were sinners, and sent His Son to die for our sins (Romans 5:8). Remember that!

    God’s mercies are above all His works,
    and above all ours too.
