When God’s Mercy Increases

Our ancestors in Egypt were not impressed by the LORD's miraculous deeds. They soon forgot his many acts of kindness to them. Instead, they rebelled against him at the Red Sea. Even so, he saved them--to defend the honor of his name and to demonstrate his mighty power. Psalm 106:7-8

Unfaithfulness toward God often begins when you forget how God has acted in the past. As the people of Israel lost sight of God’s miracles and kindness, they began to seek other gods and even openly rebelled against God.

The stories in scripture about unfaithfulness, worshipping other gods, or failing to trust God could just as easily be our own stories. It’s possible that the fantastic details of these historical accounts cause you to forget that the daily worries of life, the threats of political turmoil, and selfish desires or ambition caused God’s own people to forget even the wonder of seeing the sea split before them.

The sins of those who went before you are most likely part of your story as well. If those who witnessed the greatest miracles could forget them, how much more should you be aware of your own weaknesses?

Even during these repeated acts of unfaithfulness and forgetfulness, God’s mercy didn’t cease. In fact, God’s mercy increased in order to save His people. God didn’t stop revealing His power.
Rom 5:20; The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
