His mercy is over all that he has made

Posted by Stephen Witmer on June 12th, 2017

This morning, Annie was coloring a page from her PCF Kids workbook that contained Psalm 145.9: ‘The Lord is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.’ Our family talked about that verse over breakfast. It is a great and necessary reminder for us. It is the lens we need in order to view all the events of our lives and interpret the day before us correctly. There may be things that will happen today that do not feel like mercy. It may feel at times as though God has forgotten us and the details of our lives are not under his control. But this verse tells us differently. It says, amazingly, that God is good to all, and merciful to all he has made. So, let’s take God as his word and believe this. Today, the Lord’s goodness is coming our way. Today, his mercy is over us. I hope you will join me in believing this truth, no matter what your present circumstances.
