SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY

SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY

Behold, we count them happy which endure. You’ve heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very full of pity and He’s of tender mercy ( James 5:11 ).

COMMENTARY

God is FULL OF PITY. And in the Psalm, 103 the Lord is full of pity. “For He knows our frame that we are but dust” ( Psalms 103:14 ). God, when He looks at you, doesn’t expect to see a superman, or a super saint. He knows you’re dust anyhow. That’s why He’s so merciful, because He knows your frame. That is why we are not so merciful so many times on ourselves, because we think we are more than dust. “Well I’m a rock, I’m strong, I’m able, you know I can do it.” And then we get fractured, and we get discouraged and disappointed and we think that God is all upset with us. No, no, no. He’s not upset. He’s merciful. He knew all the time you were but dust. It was you that made the mistake, you that over estimated your capabilities, not God. You didn’t disappoint Him. He knew all the time. It was important that you know what He knows and so He lets you fall on your face. The Lord is full of pity and tender mercy.

HAVE A BLESSED DAY
