Show us Your lovingkindness, O LORD, And grant us Your salvation.Psalm 85:7(NASB)
The Lord is full of loving-kindness and tender mercies to all who will call out to Him for help - and like the children of Israel who so often cried out to the Lord when they strayed from the paths of righteousness, we too can cry to the Lord our God to show us His loving-kindness and to grant us His salvation.
Whether wilfully or through a small series of downward steps, we too can find ourselves straying from the paths of truth and righteousness, but God is ever ready to demonstrate His never-failing gracious love and tender mercies to any of His children who turn from their sin and call on His name for help.
The steadfast loving-kindness of the Lord is not only to be seen in the many blessings that fall from His hand each day, but are also seen in His chastening rod and His corrective discipline. And open to us are His everlasting arms that draw us back from our weary wanderings, our careless backsliding, or our wilful disobedience.
In every season of our lives, whether in pain or in joy, let us call on our Father: "Show us Your loving-kindness, O LORD, and grant us Your salvation."
Heavenly Father, how I praise You that Your loving-kindness and tender mercies are new every morning. No matter where I am or how far I have fallen, You are faithful and just to forgive me of my sins, to cleanse me of all my faults, and to draw me back to Yourself with your cords of love and grace. Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
