I love this passage! God gives mercy (which brings peace) when we seek Him. He does this because His ways and thoughts are higher than human ways and thoughts (which want and seek revenge). Mercy is part of God's character. His word is true and faithful and accomplishes what He desires. It is so easy to read a promise in Scripture and forget that it Almighty God's promise to ME, so I need to believe it and live in expectation of God's promise being fulfilled! Like Philippians 4:6-7...I will receive peace to guard my heart and mind when I present my requests to God with thanksgiving. I am learning more to look for God's blessing and share it with others. It's so important because then it becomes a memorial to our God! When we seek God's mercy and peace, claim His promises, and see Him work, then we gain a great testimony to share with others of the peace God brings.
