God Speaks Today
Wednesday, May 10, 2006

Some have said that the Old Testament doesn’t apply to today. Let’s consider this verse: “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. You will again have compassion on us; you will tread our sins underfoot and hurl all our iniquities into the depths of the sea.”

This verse speaks of God’s love for us. He delights in our recognition of Him. We should speak reverently of Him, in awe at His wonder and mercy. We should speak to Him each day.

We know that only God can pardon sin and forgive us for our disobedience.

We are God’s inheritance. In Matthew, we are told that the meek shall inherit the earth. Jesus also tells us: a "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven. Then come, follow me" (Matthew 10:21). Our inheritance is waiting for us in Heaven.

God is delighted when we respond to His will and is quick to show mercy. In fact, His mercy endures and is available the moment we repent.

God is compassionate and cares for each one of us. He wants us to turn from evil and turn to Him – the source of all life, goodness, and everlasting love.

As He treads our sins underfoot, we can begin to understand His great mercy and love. When we turn from our ways in repentance, God hurls our iniquities into the sea. He doesn’t just toss them lightly, He thrusts them with great vigor, and they will never be seen again.

Our inheritance depends on God in His grace and mercy. Just as He promised Abraham, He also promises us. God’s promise is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance for His glory (Galatians 3:18; Ephesians 1:14).

God speaks today through the Old Testament verses quoted above, from Micah 7:18 and 19. Just as in Luke 1:50, “His mercy extends to those who fear Him, from generation to generation.”

He doesn’t just toss them lightly, He thrusts them with great vigor, and they will never be seen again." Can we get an AMEN! on this? Great article, full of truth. Thomas
