Blessed is the Word, פ

We need God’s mercy. What’s great is that it is always available. Read Psalm 119:129-136.

Your statutes are wonderful; therefore I obey them. The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple. I open my mouth and pant, longing for your commands. Turn to me and have mercy on me, as you always do to those who love your name. Direct my footsteps according to your word; let no sin rule over me. Redeem me from human oppression, that I may obey your precepts. Make your face shine on your servant and teach me your decrees. Streams of tears flow from my eyes, for your law is not obeyed.
Psalms 119:129‭-‬136 NIV

God’s mercy is available to all who ask for it. The psalmist knew that and was seeking God’s mercy. Do we recognize our need for the mercy of God? How do we ask for and accept the mercy of God?
