Is his mercy clean gone for every?

His mercy endureth for ever.-The LORD is longsuffering, and of great mercy.-Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy. He will turn again, he will have compassion upon us; he will subdue our iniquities; and thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.-Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us.   

Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

A merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of his people. For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

Shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil?

I know, O LORD, that thy judgments are right, and that thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me,-O LORD thou art our Father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and all are the work of thy hand.-It is the LORD: let him do what seemeth him good.

Righteous art thou, O LORD, when I plead with thee; yet let me talk with thee of thy judgments.

He shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver.-Whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.-It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his Lord.-Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.

Rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.-These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of  the Lamb.

I know their sorrows.

A man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.-Touched with the feeling of our infirmities.

Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sickness.-Jesus…being wearied with his journey, sat thus on the well.

When Jesus…saw her weeping, and the Jews also weeping which came with her, he groaned in the spirit, and was troubled, and said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see, Jesus wept.-For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

He hath looked down from the height of his sanctuary; from heaven did the LORD behold the earth; to hear the groaning of the prisoner; to loose those that are appointed to death.-He knoweth he way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.-When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.

He that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.-In all their afflictions he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them.

Sit still, my daughter

Take heed, and be quite; fear not, neither be fainthearted.-Be still, and know that I am God.-Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? – The loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day.

Mary…sat at Jesus’ feet, and heard his word.-Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken from her.-In returning and rest ye shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength.-Commune with your own heart upon your bed, and be still.

Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.

He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the LORD. His heart is established.

Neither know we what to do: but our eyes are upon thee.

O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.-Teach me to do thy will: for thou art my God.-Lead me, O LORD, in thy righteousness…make thy way straight before my face.-My times are in thy hand.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering.-Who is among you that feareth the LORD…that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.

In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.-Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God.

And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? how is it ye have no faith?-Now faith is…the evidence of things not seen.

Master, carest thou not that we perish?

The LORD is good to all: and his tender mercies are over all his works.

Every moving think that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.-While the earth remaineth, seedtime ad harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.-God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? Fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is…And God opened her eyes, and she saw the well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink. Take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? What shall we drink? …for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all things…Trust…in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy.

Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.

There arose a great storm of wind, and the waves beat into the ship, so that it was now full. And he was in the hinder part of the ship, asleep on a pillow.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.-He giveth his beloved sleep.

They stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep. – Absent from the body…present with the Lord.

It is good for me to draw near to God.

LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honour dwelleth.-A day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.-Blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts: we shall be satisfied with the goodness of thy house, even of thy holy temple.

The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.-Therefore will the LORD wait, that he may be gracious unto you, and therefore will he be exalted, that he may have mercy upon you: for the LORD is a God of judgment: blessed are all they that wait for him.

Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us…Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from and evil conscience.

I am my beloved’s and his desire is toward me.

I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I have committed unto him against that day.- I am persuaded that neither death, nor life, nor angles, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.- Those that thou gavest me I have kept them, and none of them is lost.

The LORD taketh pleasure in his people.- My delights were with the sons of men.-His great love wherein he loved us.- Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.Whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.

Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes.

The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.-Your Father which is in heaven:… maketh the sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

Be ye … followers of God, as dear children; and walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling savour. Be ye kind to one another, tender-hearted, for giving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.-Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.-The love of Christ constraineth us.

Love your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. ____________________

He led them on safely.

I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment.

Behold, I send an Angel before thee, to keep thee in the way, and to bring thee into the place which I have prepared.-In all their affliction he was afflicted, and the angel of his presence saved them: in his love and in his pity he redeemed them; and he bare them, and carried them all the days of old.

They got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm; and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them.-So didst thou lead thy people to make thyself a glorious name.

Led me, O LORD in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.-O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Then I will go unto the altar of God, unto God my exceeding joy: yea, upon the harp will I praise thee, O God my God.

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.-For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.-In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away…For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as I am known.-And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on.

The LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

The LORD will not forsake his people for his great name’s sake; because it hath pleased the LORD to make you his people.-Can a woman for get her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? Yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.-Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God.

Shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily.

Vanity of Vanities; all is vanity.

We spend our years as a tale that is told. The days of our years are threescore years and ten and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable.-Here have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come.-I am the LORD, I change not.-Our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ; who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue al things unto himself.-The creature was made subject to vanity, not willing, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope.
