The LORD is Good!

"It is of the LORD's mercies that we are not consumed, because
his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul;
therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him."
Lamentations 3:22
This past Sunday evening one of our missionaries from India, brother Temple Meek and his family, visited our church. He spoke of the work there in India and told us about the many gods the Indian people worship. India is mostly Hindu. He said the gods which are in the thousands are like men: they fight, envy, become jealous, and are bitter towards one another etc. Of course this is in the minds of the Indian people. But I was thinking how sad it is to have no hope. Their gods bring no hope to them and there is no hope for a home in heaven, sense they believe in reincarnation. How great that we have a God that is not like a man for he is merciful when he could consume us, and he is compassionate when we do not deserve it. His mercies and compassion are new every day. What a wonderful God we serve and what a blessing it is to have peace in my heart and a hope for the future. How blessed we are.
" Oh Give thanks to the LORD for he is good: his mercy endureth for ever." Psalm 136:1
