We need God’s mercy when we sin that He might forgive us, but we also need it when we are weak.
Much of Psalm 109 is about the crucifixion of Christ or events surrounding it. In verses 21-25 we have a prayer that Christ would have offered the Father during the crucifixion, and hear what He says about the need for mercy when weak.
“But You, O GOD the Lord, deal with me for Your name’s sake; because Your mercy is good, deliver me. For I am poor and needy…”
He went on to speak of His wounded heart, His passing like a shadow, rejection like a man would reject a locust, His weak knees and feeble flesh from fasting, His reproach among men, and how people were shaking their heads at Him (Psalms 109:21-25).
Jesus needed the mercy of God during His persecution. What about you? Do you need God’s mercy? If so, cry out for it!
