Micah 7:18,19   Thought/Prayer:  Mercy and Compassion.  Topics:  2 at end.

“Who is a God like to you, that pardons iniquity, and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retains not his anger for ever, because he delights in mercy.
He will turn again, he will have compassion on us; he will subdue our iniquities; and you will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea.”  (AKJV)  (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com.)

This entire passage has to do with God’s mercy and compassion.  Prior to this verse, Micah is describing the nations that God will overpower;  and their peoples shall be afraid of Him.  But these two verses take on a softened quality as He speaks to His people the Israelites.  Let us apply it to some now-needy persons, if I may. 

These persons are in the families undergoing the sometimes devastating news that there is an unexpected baby on the way.  Often this baby has been conceived in ways that were not godly:  through adultery; molestation; or plain undisciplined living.  It is most always, of course, the mother who is the most disquieted and disturbed.  She obviously is the one who will bear the physical brunt of this pregnancy and also its hurtfulness or shame, since pregnancy does become obvious. 

But even if this preborn child was conceived in outright sin on the part of the mother or the father, just look at the words of this scripture.  “Who is a God like to you, that pardons iniquity, and passes by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retains not his anger for ever, because he delights in mercy.” 

These are the words such a family needs to hear.  God may be very displeased with what has taken place – not, of course, with the coming child who had no responsibility in his or her conception – but the prophet Micah is extolling not the wrath of God, but His forgiveness and His delight in mercy.  Then it goes on to say, that God will subdue our iniquities.  What does subdue mean?  To bring something under control, to curb it.  So, we can see that God not only pardons out of his delight in mercy . . . He will help us to do better, regarding our sinful ways.

Lord, we know there are young women right now who need to know of your forgiveness, mercy, and the opportunity to do better in days to come.  Please send someone with this message to those women . . . and to the fathers of their preborn babies . . . and then also, Lord, to folks struggling with negative attitudes toward the elderly and the infirm.  Show Your compassion greatly there also!
