The Mercy Of God

Genesis 19:16 is also my favorite. I could see it as a beautiful early illustration of God's Mercy in the Bible. It says:

"And while he lingered, the men took hold of his hand, his wife's hand, and the hands of his two daughters, the LORD being merciful to him, and they brought him out and set him outside the city" (NKJV).

When Lot hesitated to leave the place that God would destroy, what did the angels of God do? They "took hold of his hand, his wife's hand, and the hands of his two daughters..."!

God brought him to a safe place, not just because of his willingness and promptness to obey!

It's because "the Lord being merciful to him"!

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
