Reading and hearing the Word concerning God's mercy is vital. But to develop faith in the mercies of God, you need to take another step and begin to meditate on the Word.

Psalm 1:3 says,
A man who meditates day and night on the Word is like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Meditating God's Word does not mean sitting cross-legged on the floor, humming and chanting for 12 hours a day. Bible meditations simply means dwelling on or pondering a portion of God's Word. You can be doing this while you are taking a shower, driving your car, cooking a meal, or even drifting off to sleep at night.

As you are mulling over God's Word throughout the day, something powerful will start happening in your spirit. That Word will begin to take root and bear fruit - the fruit of faith.

The psalmist, David, knew a little bit about the mercy of God. Many of the psalms focus on it. These psalms make ideal Scriptures on which to meditate. Let's look, for example, at certain verses from the book of Psalms:
All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.
(Ps. 25:10)

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities.
(Ps. 31:7)

For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive; and plenteous in mercy unto all them that call upon thee.
(Ps. 86:6)

The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him.
(Ps. 103:8,11,17)
As a child of God, your heavenly Father has an inexhaustible supply of mercy toward you. You can't wear it out and you can't outrun it. Once you get this truth into your heart - developing faith in it - you will never shrink from God's presence again.

Faith in the mercies of God will equip you to enjoy the benefits of His presence like nothing else can.
