DCLM Daily Manna – The Depth Of His Mercy

DCLM Daily Manna 6 May 2024 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — “The Depth Of His Mercy”

TOPIC: “The Depth Of His Mercy” (DCLM Daily Manna 6 May 2024)

KEY VERSE: “He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities”(Psalm 103:10).

TEXT: Psalm 103:6-12 (KJV)

6 The Lord executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.

7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.

8 The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.

9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.

10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

11 For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.


A young man who had broken his father’s rules limiting his movements in the community refused to return home one night, afraid of the punishment awaiting him. He sought refuge in the nearby residence of his father’s close friend. He told his host that his father was a temperamental man. In his anger, he would scourge him in excess of his wrongdoing. He pleaded with him to allow him to stay away from such an injury inflicting parent that night.

Christians with a perfect understanding of the relationship they have with their heavenly Father do not harbour such misgivings. They know that, as emphasised by today’s text, God’s mercy and grace run deeper than our faults and failures. He loves His faithful children such that He would appropriately chasten them when they err. He would not pamper them. He would not want their sin to take them into eternal perdition in hell. So, as they realise their transgression and seek forgiveness, He returns them graciously into His warm embrace, giving them more grace to live the overcoming life.

Only an exceptionally loving Father would not reward us “according to our iniquities”. Not one soul can stand His full wrath if it should come upon man. His holiness would not stand sin. Though He is gracious and merciful, we must not take this for granted or as a liberty to indulge in sin.

As we receive the mercy of our gracious God, we should express our appreciation by constantly staying away from sinful acts, thoughts and appearances that offend and provoke Him. Pleasing the Lord all the days of our lives must become our priority. And we receive grace to do this as we pray.

God’s grace embraces us in our inadequacy and strengthens us with His mercy for righteous living.

1 Samuel 19-20
