Psalm 118:18

Martin Luther once referred to Psalm 118 as his “own beloved psalm.”  What a glorious Psalm it is.  I’ve read it multiple times, but only recently did this one particular vers stick out to me.

Wow.  What astounding words.  As filthy wretched sinners, we deserve nothing but death and damnation, but the Lord in his mercy has yet to give us over.  People often say, “If God really existed, he wouldn’t have let X happen.”  Yet scripture shows he disciplines us and any way that he choose is far gentler than what we deserve.  That fact that we have not yet been given over to death shows astounding mercy.
