28 Feb The Mercy Of God
S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
The line of Korah, however, did not die out.
In Numbers 16, we read how Korah, Dathan, and Abiram rebelled against Moses and Aaron. When they did, God opened the earth and killed 250 people, including those three men. Here we read that Korah’s children, however, did not die out! Think of the anger of God at three Levite men who held up a nation of three million people because of their rebellion towards God’s appointed leaders. That God did not kill Korah’s entire lineage can only be attributed to “The Mercy Of God.”
Scholars tell us that the great prophet Samuel came from Korah’s lineage. We read in Psalms of the many songs sung by Korah’s lineage. What happened? Well, either Korah’s children rejected their father’s action at the time of his rebellion, or if they did rebel with their father, they quickly repented, and God forgave them. The redeeming power of God knows no limits. Just because a man sins doesn’t mean his children have to pay the price for what their father has done. This is certainly the case of the sons of Korah. Because of that, you and I can only be forever grateful for “The Mercy Of God!”
Truly this AM, I am grateful for your Mercy, my Lord. I know that Your Word says Your mercies are new every morning, and great is Your faithfulness! Yes, I know that full well. Amen
