(64) The earth, O LORD, is full of thy mercy: teach me thy statutes.
For a moment, it is good to stop and reflect on God's mercy - it fills the earth! How do we know this? There is simple observation from nature, but we are sure because of God's Word.
"For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee." (Psalm 86:5)
"But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth." (Psalm 86:15)
"The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy." (Psalm 103:8)
"The Lord is longsuffering, and of great mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression, and by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation." (Numbers 14:18)
"The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy." (Psalm 145:8)
If this is the Lord, then why shouldn't I be willing to learn from Him and of Him?
