The Lord of mercies
Psalms 31:7 - I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;
As law breakers when we will be bought before the Judgment Seat according to the righteousness of God we are to be punished to death. The only thing that can save us is the mercy of God. Mercy overrides judgment. Mercy cannot be demanded, though it can be pleaded for. But giving or not giving is in the hands of the Lord, the mercy giver. To work towards gaining mercy is like swimming against a swift river. The only way to gain mercy is via faith, for faith and mercy are like Siamese twins.
It was only when Jesus Christ came on earth mercy was made available abundantly, so that anyone who has faith in Him will be shown mercy. It is only because of the mercy shown through faith in Jesus Christ that we can pass through the judgment of God righteousness. This mercy is not only for the end, but even today by faith in Jesus Christ the mercy brings healing and makes the river of prosperity to flow unto us. Not by what you and I have done but by the mercy shown through faith in Jesus Christ we are saved.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are the Lord of mercies. Your righteousness calls for punishment but your mercy saves me. I thank You for the mercy You have made available to me by faith in Jesus Christ. By this mercy I tap into the healing of myself in all areas of my life. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
[ Reference Scripture ]
19 Now we know that whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law, that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
20 Therefore by the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
21 But now the righteousness of God apart from the law is revealed, being witnessed by the Law and the Prophets,
22 even the righteousness of God, through faith in Jesus Christ, to all and on all who believe. For there is no difference;
23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
24 being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,
25 whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,
26 to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness, that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.
13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
