All The Paths

“All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth;
to such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.”  Psalm 25:10

Each step I take further into Truth seems to require matching steps of His mercy.

Lord, thank You for not giving us “nothing but the truth”, but mercy too. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Beloved Paths

All the paths
of the Lord
are mercy
and truth
to those
who love Him
and are loved
by Him too.

  1. First. I’m first.

  2. “All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth;
    to such as keep His covenant and His testimonies.” Psalm 25:10

    It’s so easy for us believers to see at the promises of the Lord and not recognize the conditions which must be followed to receive those promises. In this case, mercy and truth are linked to our obedience in following Him.

    Great reminder.

  3. I love your line “Each step I take further into Truth seems to require matching steps of His mercy.” No argument here. Thanks Deb for your simple but profound posts. Blessings this weekend.

  8. Without His mercy, I’d be crushed and sunk for good. Thanks, Sis Deb, for highlighting this verse in Psalms for me–it’s lovely and encouraging, and it feels like I’m reading it for the first time, which is such a treat–one of my fave things about Christian blogs!! God bless you big with a Super Saturday–love, forever sis Caddo

  21. God bless you each day, flora, with more and more mercy and truth, love and grace!

  22. Thank you for this wonderful reminder of how our walk with Him is made possible because of His endless mercy.

    Psalm 118:1
    O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: because his mercy endureth for ever . . . Amen and Amen

  23. His truth and His mercy and His love and His grace . . . they all go hand-in-hand, don’t they?

    We could not accept His truth (we are sinners, guilty, condemned, hopeless and without excuse) without His mercy, love and grace. – (Another “But God”)

    It is the same in our daily walk with Him. Truth: He tells us we must count ourselves as dead to self. Impossible without His mercy, love and grace which enable us to obey. (Another “But God”)

    What an amazing God who not only calls us but enables and empowers us to respond.

  24. Great verse to add here, Deborah! Thank you so much! And God bless you as you walk with Him today, in mercy and truth!

  25. I love that, mentor Angela, that He calls us and enables us and empowers us to respond! Indeed, what an amazing God! 🙂 God bless you and yours with His love, mercy and grace today!

  26. Amen… I will take this truth to bed with me as I seek a gentle rest. I cast my cares upon Him for He careth for us. I love your simple poem Deb!

  27. Love you, faith filled fisherlady, and praying your rest is sweet , covered by His love and mercy! That was about as simple as they come, wasn’t it? haha! God bless you muchly!! So good to hear from you!
