God’s mercy and the wonders of His love for us
So many times did the children of Israel sin against God and anger Him, yet when they called on Him in their trouble, God listened (Psalm 107:6). What a comfort to know that God is here, ready to help us when we need Him.
If God had never done anything good for us, we would not be capable of loving Him. He said we love Him because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). He chooses not to force anyone to love Him, He reveals His goodness to us in many ways. He blesses the righteous and unrighteous as well (Matthew 5:45).
