Merciful Savior

Sometimes we think so highly of ourselves - we are saved!  Yes, we once need a Savior with lots and lots of mercy - but now we are good.  We forget that we continue to fall and fail everyday!  Sometimes depression and despair will come into our lives as well.  Even, as Christians, we need God's mercy.  It wasn't just to be used once at our salvation, but an a daily basis.  These promises are for us, Christians, who were saved through His mercy, and who continue to live through His mercy.  

May we never stop asking for mercy!!

I love the Lord because He hears my voice
and my prayer for mercy.
Becuase He bends down to listen,
I will pray as long as I have bretah!
Death wrapped its ropes around me;
the terrors of the grave overtook me.
I saw only trouble and sorrow.
Then I called on the name of the Lord:
"Please, Lord, save me!"
How kind the Lord is!  How good He is!
So merciful, this God of ours!
Psalm 116:1-5

The Lord upholds all who fall,
And raises up all who are bowed down.
Psalm 145:14

He who trusts in the Lord, mercy shall surround him.
Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous;
And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!
Psalm 30:10-11
