3Let not mercy and truth forsake thee; bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of your heart: 4So shall you find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
The other day we looked at God’s goodness and mercy. His mercy is everlasting and won’t ever run out because of Jesus’ finished work. I hope you’ve continued feeding on this truth and experienced God’s mercy running to you for whatever your need has been or is today.
When you develop a deeper understanding of God’s mercy—His compassion and forgiveness wrapped up in the person of Jesus—you can understand the truth of God’s deep love for you. When you continue to walk in this truth, you’ll continue to grow as an overcoming believer and one who experiences victory every day.
How is that possible? It’s the necklace of God’s mercy and truth that you’ve worn about your neck reminding you how special you are to the Lord. You write that truth on your heart each time you focus on God’s mercy and grace through Jesus. That truth will continue to transform you from the inside out. The more you renew your mind in that truth, the more you will walk in God’s grace—His favor and enabling.
Solomon had such a deep understanding of God’s mercy and truth. He allowed God’s love, compassion, and forgiveness to be the truth that ruled his heart. If your heart isn’t ruled by the truth of God’s love and grace, you’ll be empty. But when you on purpose allow His mercy and grace to rule your heart, you’ll walk in peace. You’ll have greater spiritual revelation and understanding.
You will have open doors of favor. God’s doors of favor are even the simplest things like someone paying for your drink at a coffee shop to getting a car alternator replaced free to winning a drawing, just to mention a few. God has unlimited ways to favor you. But don’t seek for the “ways.” Seek Him—His mercy, love, and grace—by binding these around your neck in remembering what Jesus did for you. That’s engraving His truth in your heart where it will stay and grow.
The benefits of having a heart full of grace and mercy are limitless.
