SCRIPTURES: Nehemiah 9:17 “…but thou art a God ready to pardon [EL SELICHOT], gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and forsookest them not…” Psalms 103:8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. (See similar statements here: Exodus 34:6-7; 2 Chronicles 30:9; Psalm 86:15; Psalm 145:8; Joel 2:13; John 4:2).

THOUGHT: EL SELICHOT – FORGIVING GOD is literally “GOD OF PARDONS“. The word for pardon or forgiveness is a rare word that occurs in the Bible only here in Nehemiah 9:17, in Psalm 130:4, and in Daniel 9:9. Nevertheless, the concept of God’s mercy, graciousness, longsuffering and forgiveness is well established and documented throughout the Bible, as seen in Psalm 103:8 and additional references above. Revealing this aspect of God’s Nature gives you hope that the merciful and gracious God, EL SELICHOT will Pardon and Forgive you when you acknowledge and repent.

PRAYER: Dear Heavenly Father,  EL SELICHOT – FORGIVING GOD and GOD OF PARDONS: I am glad to hear that forgiveness and pardon are a part of Your nature as is evidenced by Your Name. I thank You for forgiving my trespasses and sin. In Jesus’ Name, AMEN!

About Pastor Lawrence A. Fox

We believe that along with many others, we are called by Jesus Christ to engage in a world-wide effort to reach those in and out of the Christian world with the message of full salvation and healing in His name. This effort starts in our own hearts through the power of the ministry of the Holy Spirit. It then finds growth and nourishment in the fellowship of the local church and fans out through every believer’s home, in our neighborhoods, with our relatives, in the workplace and in every human interaction that we engage in on this side of eternity. We are excited to be ambassadors for God in bringing His message to a lost and dying world. II Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.
