I AM the Heavenly Father. I am merciful. The word mercy means, "kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly," or "kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation." Do you know anybody who needs mercy poured out on their lives? I want you to know I am merciful. I really want you to understand this. The bible repeatedly says, "Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever." (I Chronicles 16:34.) This is truth.
Giving thanks is very important. You can enter into My gates when you give thanksgiving. (Psalm 100:4.) Knowing that I am good, is essential during situations that are confusing to you. Even when you do not understand, if you know that I am good, you can have peace in any situation. I also want you to know, My mercy endures forever. I do not desire to see people perish and go to hell. On the contrary, I am longsuffering toward all, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. (II Peter 3:9.) I am very merciful, and My mercy endures forever.
I Chronicles 16:34
34 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
4 Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
II Peter 3:9
9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
