Delighting in Mercy
Micah 7:18 “Who is a God like You, Pardoning iniquity and passing over the transgression of the remnant of His heritage? He does not retain His anger forever, because He delights in Mercy.”
Who is like God? Who has the ability to forgive sins? NO ONE, but our Lord! Really let that sink in. Of all the gods that are in this world and all the idols being placed in front of the one true Savior can any of them actually forgive our sins and give us eternal life? Not a chance!
Furthermore our Lord DELIGHTS in mercy! He enjoys showing mercy to His children. Delight in this verse means, “to be pleased with, desire, to find pleasure in.”
Even if there weren’t a thousand other reasons why Jesus Christ is the one true, living, Lord and Savior; the ability to pardon sins and offer eternal life is pretty huge.
Meditate on this verse today and thank the Lord for His delight in being merciful!
