How to Connect to God’s Mercy [Micah 7:18 Daily Devotional]
“Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.”
What is this verse about?
This is an Old Covenant promise of the forgiveness we now experience after Christ’s sacrifice for us. While Micah is longing for forgiveness, we get to live in it. The primary point of this verse is to explain that God isn’t actually a God of anger but a God of mercy.
How to Connect to God’s Mercy
Since God is a God of mercy, you’ll want to learn how to connect to his mercy. It’s something you’ve already received, so now you just need to accept it.
- Pray that God will open your heart and mind to connect to his mercy so you can experience the fullness of life Jesus has for you.
- Forgive yourself and stop beating yourself up over past mistakes so you can look to the future Christ has for you.
- Spend daily time with God so you can continue to recognize God’s grace and mercy in everything you do.
Jesus, thank you for your mercy. I am humbled that you chose me to experience the grace and forgiveness that so many were waiting for before me. Open my heart and mind to your love, help me to forgive myself as you’ve forgiven me, and help me to spend time with you every day so I can grow by your mercy. It’s in your name I pray, amen.
