Brothers, the Lords mercy that he shows to each of us is proportional to our hope in the Lord.
His mercy and our hope are tied together. Our hope grows by the word of God. We are to spend time in His Holy Word each day. Not just on Sunday and Wednesday with a pastor doing all of the study of His word. God forbid!
If you find yourself asking for mercy from the Lord for things that you go through in this life, then know that his mercy will be equal to your hope, and your hope will be equal to the time that you spend in His Holy Word.
Grow in His word. Trust in your hope. Trust in His mercy.
Sing praises unto the Lord daily with a joyfull heart and with thanksgiving that he is merciful to us.
God bless my brothers in Christ Jesus our Lord.
