I Chronicles 21:13 And David said to Gad, “I am in great distress. Please let me fall into the hand of the LORD, for His mercies are very great; but do not let me fall into the hand of man.”David has done wrong. Discipline is coming. David knows that God is good. He knows that God’s mercies are great. If he has to be disciplined then he knows God will show great kindness. Is that how you think of God? Do you consider how good and kind He is? He is a loving Father who never seeks to hurt you but to help you!
