DRAWING FROM HIS MERCY!

Aug 5, 2021

As for me, I will come into Your house in the multitude of Your mercy;…Psalms 5:7

David, one of the patriots of faith, despite his shortcomings, enjoyed an understanding of the mercy of the Lord.

There is a place where mercy can take you, but you have to be conscious and aware of it, never taking it for granted.

It will be very difficult to walk in pride when you have a revelation of the mercy of God. You won’t take credit for anything He does.

“God has not observed iniquity in Jacob, Nor has He seen wickedness in Israel. The Lord his God is with him, And the shout of a King is among them….Numbers 23:16-23

God stood and protected the children of Israel even when their lives were not in proper alignment with Him. Because of mercy and grace, He overlooked their iniquities.

The mercies of God cover, fight and defend a man that when you look at that them, you know that it’s not by their effort that they are what they are.

God never permits us to sin but as long as we are in this body, we always miss the mark. ( In thoughts, desire, words, and actions…James 4:17)

The Lord knows our weaknesses, that is why His mercy exists.

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not. Lamentations 3:22

Out of the abundance of His mercy, Jesus came and died for us on the cross!.

But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us…Romans 5:8

My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous… 1 John 2:1

There is a place in God only reserved for men and women who understand His mercy!.

Mercy triumphs over judgment…James 2:13

Even Satan has no say in the mercies of God.

“I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.”…Romans 9:13,15

God does not need to consult with anyone to have mercy on you.

You may not be the best candidate but when God’s mercy locates you, people’s opinions won’t matter!.

“Your fathers, including Terah, the father of Abraham and the father of Nahor served other gods…Joshua 24:2.

Though Abraham, the father of faith, came from a family deeply rooted in idolatry, God chose him by His mercy and drew him from his Father’s idolatrous house.

Now the Lord had said to Abram: “Get out of your country, From your family And from your father’s house To a land that I will show you. *Genesis 12:1

Jesus died to connect us to these mercies that we may share in the Abrahamic blessings.

God prospered Jacob in Laban’s house even if Laban and his entire family (Including Rachel, Jacob’s beloved wife) were idol worshippers. (Genesis 31:22-32)

Understanding God’s mercy, will eliminate all the guilt and condemnation the enemy will try to lay on you.

No one under the sun is perfect. Even the people we admire the most have shortcomings in temper, anger, emotions, thoughts, words, etc.

That’s why we draw from the sure mercies of David that God promised us.

He has spoken thus: ‘I will give you the sure mercies of David.’ Acts 13:33-34

As He was coming near Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the road begging. and he cried out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Luke 18:35,38

The mercies of the Lord will help you manifest a level of blessings that are beyond your input!

The children of Israel were never righteous but God delivered them because of His covenant of mercy He had with Abraham!. ( Exodus 32:1 )

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever…To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever;… Psalms 136.

His mercy produces great wonders!.

Bless the Lord, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His Holy name…He forgives all your iniquities, heals all your diseases, redeems your life from destruction, and crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,…Psalms 103:1-4.

The crown He gives us is ‘Tender mercies!’.

Let’s pray along with this audio and draw from His mercies!.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVOURED, WE LOVE YOU. PASTOR BEN OCHOLA.
