Faithful…always

14 01 2012

Chapter 11 of Genesis  sums up how far man has travelled from the good creation of chapter 1 – “Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.”

Powers of ten

Do you remember what God’s intention was?  His instruction to mankind was to fill the earth and govern it, but man thinks he knows better. (Don’t we always?) He wants fame, control and prestige. It’s a sad wandering from the intended path.

You can read more about this in my previous post – Mind your language.

God doesn’t give up on his rebelious people.  God doesn’t give up on me.  The words of the featured song on Wordlive this week sum it up –

Merciful God, O abounding in love,
Faithful to all who draw near You;
Hearing the cries of the humble in heart,
Showing the cross they may cling to.
Broken I come, helpless in sin,
Found at the feet of Your mercy.
Father, forgive; may my sin be remembered no more.

Merciful God, O abounding in love,
Faithful through times we have failed You;
Selfish in thought and uncaring in deed,
Foolish in word and ungrateful.
Spirit of God, conquer our hearts
With love that flows from forgiveness;
Cause us to yield and return to the mercy of God.

Merciful God, O abounding in love,
Faithful to keep us from falling;
Guiding our ways with Your fatherly heart,
Growing our faith with each testing.
God speed the day struggles will end;
Faultless we’ll gaze on Your glory.
Then we will stand overwhelmed by the mercy of God.

Merciful God”Merciful God”
