What a wonderful verse! It gives so many great attributes of the Lord in just a few words. It starts with an essential truth – the Lord is good. Every action He takes, every word He says, is for our good because He is good. So much misunderstanding of God happens because people don’t realize God’s goodness.
Next, His mercy is everlasting. How reassuring is that! God will forgive our sins and then forgive them again and again. His mercy didn’t stop yesterday and it won’t stop today. God’s mercy, which means we don’t get what we deserve, will last forever.
Finally, His truth will endure for eternity. This means God’s not going to all of sudden change His mind. In some religions, their god isn’t consistent, so they can have no hope because they don’t know what to expect. That’s not the God of the Bible, who is truthful and reliable. The Lord isn’t changing His mind!
Meditate on this verse today and let these fantastic attributes of God touch your heart.
Relying on my good, merciful, and honest God,
Pastor Ron Kitchell
