Welcome to JUNE,
Our Month of DIVINE MERCY Romans 9:15
Divine mercy is an act of kindness, compassion, favour and leniency that we do not deserve but given to us by God. Throughout the Bible, everyone who requested for mercy received it. Miracles, signs and wonders are products of God’s mercy. Mercy is the gateway to favour, prosperity, blessings and breakthroughs - Genesis 39:20-23. Mercy defends against satanic attacks and accusations, and it delivers from destruction - Psalm 57:3. We can do nothing and we can only become nothing without the mercy of God. Lamentations 3:22 says it is of the Lord mercy that we are not consumed.
We can learn two major things from the story of blind Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52. Firstly, he cried for mercy. Therefore, it is very important that you must also ask for mercy by yourself. No one can do the asking for you. Secondly, he cast away his garment. Therefore, you must do away with any garment such as self-righteousness, pride, ego or anything that can hinder your prayers - Luke 18:10-14.
Take heed that you do not abuse the mercy of God. Taking the mercy of God for granted is like sucking poison out of a sweet flower. Taking God’s mercy as a sign of weakness and a license to sin forever is the devil’s logic and it is like drinking deadly poison. Mercy abused, always turns to fury.
If you are yet to accept Jesus Christ into your life, you can do it now that His mercy is still available to you. All you need to do is confess your sins and promise Him never to go back to it again and He will forgive you - 1John 1:9. May the Lord have mercy on you as you take that bold step of faith.
I pray for you the reader of this note, that Almighty God will make you a candidate of mercy in Jesus Christ’s mighty name.
