Grace And Mercy Cover Us

You know that it is amazing to know that Jesus knew all the time that he was going to be betrayed. He knew of the hour, he knew by whom and he knew that his disciples would be cowardly and not stand up for him. Imagine trusting your crew to take care of you and they turn on you? This happens everyday. Husbands turn on wives, wives turn on husbands. Lunatics turn on innocent people. The list goes on. Heck the ancient people turned on God. It is written throughout the Bible. However the saving grace to this all is salvation, faith, grace and mercy which are given by God himself only through the suffering of Jesus are we forgiven for our sins. We have to believe that Gods grace and mercy covers us. Jeremiah 29:11-14 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. And I will be found of you, saith the Lord: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.
