“The Tender Mercies of the Lord Are Over All Those Whom He Hath Chosen”

D. Kelly Ogden, Andrew C. Skinner

This verse provides comforting assurance to all those who earnestly seek true discipleship: “The tender mercies of the Lord are over all those whom he hath chosen, because of their faith, to make them mighty.” The Lord is merciful to the chosen—that is, to those who choose him—to deliver them from whatever challenges they will encounter; faith brings power to be delivered from any negative influence bearing down on us.
