A Heart Changed By Mercy

Have you ever questioned God about any event in your life?

If you have never questioned God keep reading or if you have not questioned God keep reading.

Through a few events that I had no control of, God was able to show me how much I was lacking in mercy.

What is mercy?  Truthfully I had never looked it up.  Below are a few definitions from The Merriam-Webster Dictionary:

  • Price paid.
  • Compassion shown to an offender.
  • A blessing resulting from divine favor or compassion.
  • A fortunate circumstance.
  • Compassion shown to victims of misfortune.

I was lacking mercy to give to someone else and totally forgot how much mercy God had shown me throughout my life.

Exodus 33:19 NLT
… For I will show mercy to anyone I choose, and I will show compassion to anyone I choose. 
Romans 9:16 NLT
So it is God who decides to show mercy. We can neither choose it nor work for it.
John 3:16 NLT
For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.

Mercy from God happens everyday.  Now I can say that my heart has truly changed because of His mercy!

Because of God’s mercy, He can create a clean heart in all of us.

Psalm 51:10-13 NLT
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God. Renew a loyal spirit within me.
11 Do not banish me from your presence, and don’t take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.
13 Then I will teach your ways to rebels, and they will return to you.


Be blessed!
