Let The Weary Taste God’s Mercy!

The Nugget:

Psa 34:6  This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.

My Comment:

Psalm 34:6 meant much to me as I forged ahead with my project to produce the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge after my dreadful experience of being shot in the teachers’ parking lot at the back of Southeastern High School. I was off from teaching for the next nearly five years. During that time I typed the text of the New Treasury.

Once the New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge was  published in 1992, I soon  received a letter of thanks for my work from Ken Sagely. We’ve been in touch ever since. Ken is the person who suggested the idea of posting daily Bible nuggets here. I have not been able to post them daily, but I’ve posted quite a few so far. Ken has given me permission to post his Facebook Bible messages here. Just now as I am busier with outdoor tasks like helping my wife plant and now water the garden, Ken’s contributions here have been helpful to me.

From Ken Sagely’s Facebook Post:

Let The Weary Taste God’s Mercy!

PSALM 34.8 O taste and see that the Lord is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

PSALM 36.7 How precious is Your Lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings. 8 They drink their fill of the abundance of Your house; And You give them to drink of the river of your delights.

PSALM 107.8-9 Let them give thanks to the Lord for His Lovingkindness, And for HIs wonders to the sons of men! 9 For He has satisfied the thirsty soul, And the hungry soul He has filled with what is good.

MATTHEW 11.28-29 Come to Me, all who are weary and and heavy laden and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart; and you will find rest for your souls.

JOHN 1.12-13 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name. 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.



Day by day and with each passing moment,
strength to meet my trials here;
trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment
I’ve no cause for worry or for fear.

He whose heart is kind beyond all measure
gives unto each day what He deems best
lovingly its part of pain and pleasure,
mingling toil with peace and rest.

The protection of His child and treasure
is a charge that on Himself He laid.
“As thy days, my strength shall be in measure,”
This the pledge to me He made. Deut 33.25
