Podcast #268: “Have Mercy on Me” by The Porter’s Gate Worship Project (feat. David Gungor)

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

Mercy is one of those things that I want freely bestowed upon me, and yet I tend to be pretty stingy with mercy for others. God’s Word has wrecked me over the past few weeks as it relates to mercy. The Porter’s Gate Worship Project has a haunting ballad that has complemented my study as I worship with their song, “Have Mercy on Me.”

As we look intently into the mercy of God, may we better reflect it in our own lives.

On this episode I discuss:

  • Taking a B.I.T.E. out of Scripture – this week’s Bible Interaction Tool Exercises include:
    • Use an outside resource – I used this excerpt from a book by Herman Bavinck
    • Explore a topic
    • Write out Scripture
    • Slow down
    • Make a list
    • Complete a word study
  • Being initially inspired by Psalm 18:25-27 that we first discussed on Episode #266
  • How I need to see God’s mercy and so I need to learn to be merciful
  • Bavinck’s definition, “The goodness of God, when shown to those in misery, is called mercy.”
  • A great confession of the Old Testament – Exodus 34:6
  • The results of mercy as found in Deuteronomy 4:31
  • God’s great mercy despite our unfaithfulness – 2 Chronicles 30:9
  • Contrasting God’s mercy to the ways of men in Psalm 86:15
  • Realizing God’s mercy is what causes his wondrous works to be remembered as we see in Psalm 111:4 and as discussed on Episode #265
  • Contrasting the attitude of men with the mercy of God in 2 Samuel 24:14 and Proverbs 12:10
  • Completing a word study on three different words translated as mercy
  • Mercy triumphs over judgement – James 2:13

This Week’s Challenge

Use the excerpt I found by Herman Bavinck to look up all of the Scripture references for yourself. Write out the Scriptures in your own handwriting. Perhaps even commit this confession to heart — “The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.”
