Great Are Thy Mercies Part 2


So says the Psalmist:

1O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever.

2O give thanks unto the God of gods: for his mercy endureth for ever.

3O give thanks to the Lord of lords: for his mercy endureth for ever.

4To him who alone doeth great wonders: for his mercy endureth for ever.

5To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

6To him that stretched out the earth above the waters: for his mercy endureth for ever.

7To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever:

8The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever:

9The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

10To him that smote Egypt in their firstborn: for his mercy endureth for ever:

11And brought out Israel from among them: for his mercy endureth for ever:

12With a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm: for his mercy endureth for ever.

13To him which divided the Red sea into parts: for his mercy endureth for ever:

14And made Israel to pass through the midst of it: for his mercy endureth for ever:

15But overthrew Pharaoh and his host in the Red sea: for his mercy endureth for ever.

16To him which led his people through the wilderness: for his mercy endureth for ever.

17To him which smote great kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

18And slew famous kings: for his mercy endureth for ever:

19Sihon king of the Amorites: for his mercy endureth for ever:

20And Og the king of Bashan: for his mercy endureth for ever:

21And gave their land for an heritage: for his mercy endureth for ever:

22Even an heritage unto Israel his servant: for his mercy endureth for ever.

23Who remembered us in our low estate: for his mercy endureth for ever:

24And hath redeemed us from our enemies: for his mercy endureth for ever.

25Who giveth food to all flesh: for his mercy endureth for ever.

26O give thanks unto the God of heaven: for his mercy endureth for ever. (Psalm 136, King James Version)

I get a strange feeling that he might have been on to something…

However, I want you to take a closer look. Now our God is an Almighty God. But this particular psalm was written (as was the Bible) from the perspective of Israel. God did all of these things for His chosen people.

We can look at Exodus and see many of the wonders that God did on behalf of the nation of Israel. All the while, these chosen had no idea how blessed they really were.

When God gave the Gentiles an Apostle, oh happy and joyous of days. The Gentile nation had gained a picture and glimpse of all of these things that were done for Israel and just wanted to be counted in that number.

So for a time, the mercies of God endureth for ever for Israel. Now, His mercies endureth for all who shall receive Him.

Do you understand how Great, is the Mercy of God? If so, I encourage you to stop what you are doing and give thanks to the Father for all… not some… but ALL.
