Welcome to Day 779 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.

God is Merciful – Meditation Monday
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 779 of our Trek, and it is time for our segment called Meditation Monday. Taking time to relax, refocus, and reprioritize our lives is crucial in order to create a living legacy.
For some, it may just be a time alone for quiet reflection. Some may utilize structured meditation practices. In my life meditation includes reading and reflecting on God’s Word, and in prayer. It is a time to renew my mind, refocus on what is most important, and make sure that I am nurturing my soul, mind, and body.
Due to a heavy travel and activity-filled schedule this week, our Wisdom-Trek episodes will be shorter so that I can pre-record them. As we continue with this new year, I thought it would be good to invest this time discovering God and His key attributes. Today’s attribute is…
God Is Merciful
Because God is merciful…He forgives me of my sins when I sincerely confess them.
“The Lord is full of tenderness and mercy,” James [5:11].
God shows you mercy because He compassionately cares about you. The Bible is filled with examples of how Jesus was moved with compassion and acted to help those who were sick, suffering, and in need.
All humanity benefits from God’s mercy to some degree. He demonstrates his mercy both by withholding punishment we so rightfully deserve and by showering us with blessings we do not deserve.
But God also has a sovereign mercy He shows to those who are His. To experience God’s full mercy, we must repent of our sin and self-centeredness and accept God’s forgiveness.
God wants us, in turn, to be merciful to others. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus declared, “God blesses those who are merciful, for they will be shown mercy,” Matthew 5:7.
Your loving heavenly Father is committed to your well-being. Out of His great compassion, He generously bestows on you His grace and mercy.
“Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most,” Hebrews [4:16].
Tomorrow we will continue to discover God’s character exploring that God is faithful. Thank you for joining me on this trek called life. Encourage your friends and family to join us and then come along tomorrow for another day of our Wisdom-Trek, Creating a Legacy.
