1 Chronicles 16: 31-34, 2 Samuel 7:12-16, Psalm 136
One of the core features of God is mercy. The nature of His personality is mercy which extends from His love to humanity as a magnanimous Creator. He is compassionate while dispensing mercy, besides, the infinite forbearance of God moves from one generation to the other without “fisting” even when He has the ultimate power to do so. Invariably, mercy flows from God to man which should in turn be shown from man to man. Mercy means blessing that is an act of divine favour or compassion that endures forever. However, its application is deeper as the one that shows mercy does it at His will.
A vivid grasp of Numbers 14: 18 where Moses pleaded for forgiveness of sins on behalf Israelites clearly informs that God is great in mercy which accommodates; forgiveness and clearing the guilty, besides,in Matthew 12:7 Jesus said I will have mercy, and not sacrifice ye would not have condemned the guiltless. Despite that the Pharisees accused Christ’s disciples for doing what is unlawful on the Sabbath day by ploughing corn, it’s obvious that mercy seeks solution and not error, it does not condemn but sets free, exonerate, it therefore means that through mercy freedom is inevitable. To the reader of this message, God will show you mercy that will erase errors from your life and set you free in Jesus Name.
Since mercy is infinite and emanates from God, He had in time past said ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; separated from darkness into his marvellous light….1 Peter 2:9, verse 10 says which in time past were not a people but are now the people of God:which had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. Via mercy you have received the light, you have been transformed and seated with Christ in heavenly places.
As long you have been transformed through mercy, I pray you will enjoy mercy forever in Jesus Name. In 1 Chronicles 17:13 God pronounced unending mercy on David through Prophet Nathan. Hear this brethren, mercy is always fresh, as it was with God from the beginning, it neither grow old nor looses it relevancy. You must obtain fresh mercy from Jesus to remain fresh and relevant before God and the world. I pray that God will announce your glory to the world by His mercy in Jesus Name.
When man becomes a candidate of mercy, it means that Romans 9:16 “so then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy” is fulfilled in his life. The Almighty God will fulfil this scripture in your life in Jesus Name.
You will continuously be a candidate of mercy in Jesus Name.
Joseph enjoyed mercy- Gen 39:21.
The Lunatic received mercy: Matthew 17:14-15 And when they were come to the multitude, there came to him a certain man, kneeling down to him, and saying,
Lord, have mercy on my son: for he is lunatic, and sore vexed: for ofttimes he falleth into the fire, and oft into the water.
Paul obtained mercy:1 Timothy 1:12-13 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry;
Who was before a blasphemer, and a persecutor, and injurious: but I obtained mercy, because I did it ignorantly in unbelief.
Elizabeth, Zechariah’s wife wasn’t left out of mercy. Luke 1:58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her.
Many more enjoyed mercy and God’s mercy is unlimited to you.
God is always interested in the joy of His children, no matter how hard, difficult and perilous the issue, even if you are considered vacuum or dead, I have these eternal words for you, as long as Lazarus the dead received mercy, everything inactive, buried destiny and glory, unannounced and covered manifestation of covenant and promise of God in your life will revive in Jesus Name.
John 11:35 ‘Jesus wept, He had mercy and compassion on His dead friend, recover all that you have lost in Jesus name, take back everything the enemy has stolen from you through mercy in Jesus name, receive restoration in Jesus Name.
Whoever rides on the horses of mercy will always live a fulfilled life. Always appreciate God for His mercy that endures forever, thanksgiving swifts God into action, praises coupled with request for mercy will always get God’s attention.
IN THE END, WHOEVER THAT IS IDENTIFIED WITH CHRIST WILL ALWAYS BE BENEFICIARY OF MERCY AND BY EXTENSION TO HUMANITY.
