Hallesby: God is merciful

Monday, July 11, 2011
    Feast of Benedict of Nursia, Father of Western Monasticism, c.550
    When we were overwhelmed by sins, you forgave our transgressions.
    —Psalm 65:3 (NIV)
    God is merciful even when He declines to give us things that we ask of Him.
    ... O. Hallesby (1879-1961), Prayer, London: Inter-Varsity Fellowship, 1943, reprint, Augsburg Fortress Books, 1975, p. 132 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your mercy is eternal.
