I will praise the Lord among the people. I will sing under the among the nation's mercy is great and thy truth on file. The value exalted God above the heavens gloried in the above Sean says mercy of God is great and because of that, I will praise God among the people. I'm not going to keep the knowledge of this truth to myself. I will praise you and I will praise you among the people, praise him among the nation's which strictly directs our thoughts and the fact the interested in sharing the good news the gospel getting the message out at home and abroad. How often do you give all to the brink of God's mercy and acquire that greatness around and reading Scripture you come across the word mercy it's one that you're very familiar with, and it's easy to just pass it by and give no special thought to failing to think about our may have been a not dark place when you said as the psalmist of old is not mercy clean gone forever. Your prayers are not being answered.

Things just not going well in all deeply troubled company has God forgot his mercy must be clean gone forever had to come back and did patient say this is mine from our remember the works of the Lord say I will remember thy works level in my haste I know your mercy is not so I'm going to remember I works maybe you read the word mercy in Scripture give very little attention to it, may sing about and not notice it at all. Wonderful family saying, that found every blessing to my heart to sing thy grace streams of what streams mercy, never ceasing, call for songs of loudest praise. Teach me some sonic sung by flaming tongues above.

Praise fixed on mount of thy hello, let us consider the importance of mercy in regard to what our text said mercy is great on to the heaven 62 miles outer space, and when. Swanson made that trip only on the arts. They found it was a great looking the other night at a full moon and admiring its beauty. I thought as far away as you are God's mercy goes far beyond the moon is 238,900 miles away from Earth. God's mercy extends to the moon, but far beyond times. Mercy goes beyond all lot of mercy, but surely we know we need a lot of mercy mercy every day, and there is reason then to rejoice in. Had to sing about it and to tell others about Shaw's way. Think about mercy. First, we wanted to find secondly considered thirdly asked for in the fourth place give thanks for nothing other than a dictionary you find words like this to explain what mercy it speaks of pity of compassion exercise toward offender. It's the act of sparing grapes favor part only connected as part of the definition of what mercy is Scripture get some specific information and tumors with the first book of Romans chapter 9 reading in verse 11 for the children being not yet born, neither having done any good or evil purpose of God according to election might stand not works but of call center elders serve the younger. As it is written, Jacob have I love Esau have I hated all is very plainspoken, very specific about God's sovereignty and the choice of drink verse 14 what shall we say is there unrighteousness with God on the direction of the Holy Spirit anticipated the fact that human beings would say whoa, that's not fair that's not right. What you do for one, you must do for all Paul says there is no unrighteousness with God.

God for me.

God is sovereign and has the right to bestow mercy.

According to his pleasure for him said to Moses, have mercy on whom I will have mercy, never talking about definition of mercy and we find here that it is unmerited favor unmerited favor bestowed by God himself. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.

What's the result of the goes on to verse 16 so then it is not of him will of the electronic God actually mercy a high percentage of people profession, believe the gospel will say to you all. I know that God is part but ultimately it's man's choice terms effort.

Man must make his choice finally left him for him. Well, that's not the conclusion called Paul says it is not well if it's not based on man's free will is based on God's mercy, not run, but of God that showed there is a plain doctrinal truth defining mercy mercy dispensed from the hand holding sovereign Ephesians and she is the very foundation of our salvation chapter 2 verse four but God, who is rich in mercy and we learn something about mercy on reaching God has a lot of his mercy goes beyond the scar goes in beyond the heavens God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he love us even when we were in Cintas Quicken – gather with crimes by grace you are because of his abundant mercy, because of his rich mercy, even when you were dead in trespasses and what you do as a data center to bring about your own salvation Brings himself the data center cannot move non-toxic affecting the unrighteous. No, not one man in his fallen state does not seek God he is the enemy of God is enmity against God doesn't love him doesn't fear him that she can submit the survey so it requires American divine he Quicken the center was dancing and bring him to a new life in Jesus Christ than one more Titus chapter 3 verse five not by works of righteousness which we have isn't that somebody controlled boldly say well I know God has his part, but the center has not by works of righteousness which we really cannot be any works of righteousness until after the work rates going all that the center is against God.

He can't perform works of righteousness. He may exercise some noble acting, something that is marginally significant and beneficial to society, but he cannot perform works of righteousness when he stated he knew from God took even after the experience of grace even after one has been regenerated and does perform works of righteousness. Salvation is not based on that works of righteousness are not the cause of the salvation that the evidence so not by works of righteousness if we have done, but according to his what mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Ghost which is shed on some money through Jesus Christ, according to his mercy according to his mercy chunks of people over the world before they had any being in themselves. If you're child of God you can't boast is brought about for you all before God created the heaven and the earth. It's not about you and that amazing and you know you left you chose Jewish covenant of grace. It was mercy, which God chose people as we read clearly laid out in Romans chapter 9. It was Marcy Brock Christ to finish our die for.

You didn't come here to reward the good right than those boasted in self-righteousness came to die for the talk that you know your center.

That's good news for you. Lately the gospel is good news not good news but some are offended by if you been convicted of your sinful state know that you need a Savior.

It's good to know he died for the Obama mercy that the Holy Spirit brought about the washing of regeneration.

This described in this text was because of any movement on your free will. It was by his free grace, but her softeners and is because of mercy that you were being of the power of God ultimately to receive that inheritance on the side of the cause of mercy that you one day arrive safe home last in the presence of Jesus Christ live with you wonderful mercy.

Yes, we sang the wondrous love of Jesus saying his mercy and his grace in the mansions bright and blessed he will prepare for us to sleep true and faithful, trusting, serving everyday just one of him in glory will the colons of life sometimes try to envision that. Will it be like to be in heaven itself to be able to look upon Jesus Christ. Just one glimpse of him glory will the total life. So when we sing in the him a familiar one. When we all get to heaven we sang his mercy and his grace as we sent him as we read about mercy in Scripture that's paid close attention to think about it, but this mercy is not something that you deserve. If you were being repaid because of your work in your marital mercy. It would just be the worker receiving is higher.

Mercy can never be in the book of Genesis chapter 32 verse 10 we read the words of Jacob. Jacob was fearful at this time.

You know what I mean. His brother Esau and could well imagine that Esau would be very bitter because Jacob had taken the birthright eventually comes to the Lord to pray.

I am not worthy of the least of thy mercy and all truth without showed unto thy servant. If you make a short prayer on a regular basis. You're not the one that's easily upset you're not going to be a complainer. You're not going to be bitter toward other people cause whatever your situation is say I am not worthy of the least of his muscles and give you a totally different outlook on life. If you indeed believe that and make that far with my staff have passed over this Jordan, but I came this way.

First coming from my home, going to Laban's house by myself. All I had possession. I just passed over this river with my staff but now, come to my now is very wealthy in spite of the fact that Laban mistreated him. He's prospered. He has why he has children he has flocked see her for years on abundance and choices are primarily from that that you would deliver me from the hand of my brother from the hand of Esau for fear him less. He will come and smite me and the mother with children. Oh Lord, I'm I'm afraid that people come and do a scar in great fear and knowledge, not worthy of the least of mercy and God intervene and when he met Esau.

Esau fell on his neck and kissed him, and wept. Yes, God did intervene and spare servant Jacob, may we all constantly maintain attitude and spirit that he expressed in this prayer.

I am not the least of thy mercies, so we say that mercy is something that cannot be it is the sovereign mercy of God is dispensed according to his pleasure. Now consider further consider that mercy is up to the heaven since greater than we can fathom place described as being abundant in the first Peter chapter 1 verse three is just Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his mercy at the got nuts again unto a lively hope of the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the so when you know you need mercy, not asking for something that's about to go out not being left on it was abundant to begin with to reach your case the Savior so still abundant and you need his mercy daily basis.

Not only is described as being abundant, but being plenteous, 103 verse eight, the Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and yes it mercy. Plenty of know we've gotten so use to prosperity here in America that you see some of the things happening today are little different drop a few I went to the store the other day and I could not believe all of the empty shell for most the time you go on their full empty shelves and was not an abundance of merchandise there from which to select the course many people around the world know nothing about the prosperity that you enjoyed here where you go to the grocery store and expect shall be full go to the merchant and expect the clothes you want to buy all that well certainly then things are not as abundant as they have been in other times not so the mercy of God. It is abundant. It's plenteous.

There's plenty of verse 10 says he has not dealt with us after our sins not rewarded us according to our four as the heavenly's high above the earth.

References expect once more. So great is his mercy that his mercy is plenteous. It's great.

It's high above God and all in all. Will one of wonderful truths to consider that the mercy of God is great on the heaven we know that in our sales phone bankruptcy Joyce to hear the good news is abundant grace of God to rescue us from our local phone state.
