“Meditate a little on this mercy of the Lord. It is tender mercy. With gentle, loving touch,

He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. He is as gracious in the

manner of His mercy as in the matter of it.

It is great mercy. There is nothing little in God; His mercy is like Himself—it is infinite.

You cannot measure it. His mercy is so great that it forgives great sins to great sinners,

after great lengths of time, and then gives great favours and great privileges, and

raises us up to great enjoyments in the great heaven of the great God.

It is undeserved mercy, as indeed all true mercy must be, for deserved mercy is only a

misnomer for justice. There was no right on the sinner’s part to the kind consideration

of the Most High; had the rebel been doomed at once to eternal fire he would have

richly merited the doom, and if delivered from wrath, Sovereign love alone has found a

cause, for there was none in the sinner himself.

It is rich mercy. Some things are great, but have little efficacy in them, but this mercy is

a cordial to your drooping spirits; a golden ointment to your bleeding wounds; a

heavenly bandage to your broken bones; a royal chariot for your weary feet; a bosom of

love for your trembling heart.

It is manifold mercy. As Bunyan says, ‘All the flowers in God’s garden are double.’ There

is no single mercy. You may think you have but one mercy, but you shall find it to be a

whole cluster of mercies.

It is abounding mercy. Millions have received it, yet far from its being exhausted; it is as

fresh, as full, and as free as ever.

It is unfailing mercy. It will never leave thee. If mercy be thy friend, mercy will be with

thee in temptation to keep thee from yielding. Mercy will be with thee in trouble to

prevent thee from sinking.

Mercy will be with thee living to be the light and life of thy countenance. And mercy will

be with thee dying to be the joy of thy soul when earthly comfort is ebbing fast.”

–Charles Spurgeon

Lamentations 3:22-24

 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed,

because his compassions fail not.

They are new every morning:

great is thy faithfulness.
