Mercies ∞ Infiniti

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. Leviticus 3:22-23

Every morning you wake, God’s mercies are new.  There are not actually new but the are new to us.  Like the sun rising to begin a new day, the days is not new. It is just new to us.  The sun as always been there. As the earth continues to rotate on its axis, God’s mercies are still being dispensed and never running out.

The Biblical Hebrew word of mercy is rachamim.  Translated as mercy but rachamim is not a singular noun. It is plural. It means mercies.  It is one word which holds all of God powerful mercies which are so deep, so ever expanding, and so powerful. It can’t be singular. It is plural. It is infinite.

Infinite mercies end sin. Sin is singular. No matter the sin, God mercies are powerful enough to cover them and make them come to an end.  To sin, His mercies attack it and removes it as far from us as the east is from the west. (Psalm 103:12) Our sin ends. His mercies are infinite.

The writer reflecting Israel’s praise for God’s mercies in Psalm 136 understood this well. Every time he would reflect an aspect of God’s character or attributes, he would cap each line with “for His mercies endures forever.”

When you begin to think about all the messes you have been in or created, remember His mercies endures forever.  To the nasty things you have thought, His mercies endures forever.  To the sinful atrocities you have seen, remember His mercies endures forever. To the dirty things you have touched, remember His mercies endures forever. Finally, to the ungodly things you have heard, remember His mercies endures forever.  No sin can never, ever be greater than His mercies.

His mercies endures forever.
