Just His Mercy! Graciously Given!

Lamentation 3:22 It is indeed by the mercies of the Lord that I am not consumed, for his compassions fail not. Where would I be this moment without the mercies of God? Where would you be friends? For when the wicked, mine enemies came to eat up my flesh they stumbled and fell – Psalms 27:2. When my enemies came in like a flood to sweep me away, the spirit of the Lord raised a standard against them Isaiah 59:19

Thus will I rejoice and be glad for no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and any tongue that rises in judgement against me I condemn in Jesus name Isaiah 54:17

Psalms 71:5  For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth.By thee have I been holden up from the womb: thou art he that took me out of my mother’s bowels: my praise shall be continually of thee.I am as a wonder unto many, but thou art my strong refugeLet my mouth be filled with thy praise and with thy honour, all the day.Cast me not off in the time of old age; forsake me not when my strength faileth.10 For mine enemies speak against me; and they that lay wait for my soul take counsel together,11 Saying, God hath forsaken him: persecute and take him; for there is none to deliver him.12 O God, be not far from me: O my God, make haste for my help.13 Let them be confounded and consumed that are adversaries to my soul; let them be covered with reproach and dishonour that seek my hurt.14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.15 My mouth shall shew forth thy righteousness and thy salvation all the day; for I know not the numbers thereof.16 I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.17 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.18 Now also when I am old and grey-headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to every one that is to come.19 Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!20 Thou, which hast shewed me great and sore troubles, shalt quicken me again, and shalt bring me up again from the depths of the earth.21 Thou shalt increase my greatness and comfort me on every side.22 I will also praise thee with the psaltery, even thy truth, O my God: unto thee will I sing with the harp, O thou Holy One of Israel.23 My lips shall greatly rejoice when I sing unto thee; and my soul, which thou hast redeemed.24 My tongue also shall talk of thy righteousness all the day long: for they are confounded, for they are brought unto shame, that seek my hurt.

Trusting God Through It All!

Have you suffered misfortune? Have you failed in any endeavor? Have you encountered difficulties of any sort? Afflicted with diseases? Does it seem you can’t do anything right? Do you have more questions than answers in your daily life? You are not alone! Isreal many time over have as beloved of God experienced same.

sinners prayerWhenever there is sin and disobedience to the Will of God, our loving Father in Heaven sends correction our ways. It may seem like a road block, a slippery slope, bondage and imprisonment, it could be a trip or a fall facedown. The consequences of sin is never palatable.

I am not proposing that every affliction is as a result of the sin of an individual or collective always. The wicked also sows tares while men slept! He will also curry for permission to stike as he did Job. However, the root cause of all suffering still remains sin- sin of the first man, the sins of the Father’s!

Friends, please be aware still, that God is a good God, He will RESTORE! He will be angry but for a short moment, it may cause grievous pain, yet His mercy will speak. God will not utterly deal with US the way we deserve but with outstretched hands will He gather US. He will gather US unto Himself with Love. All we need to do is ask for mercy! Repent today of your sins and let God’slove redeem you from a life of sin-waste.

God’s promises for you and I are thus: Jeremiah 33:2 Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name; 3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not. 4 For thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the houses of this city, and concerning the houses of the kings of Judah, which are thrown down by the mounts, and by the sword; 5 They come to fight with the Chaldeans, but it is to fill them with the dead bodies of men, whom I have slain in mine anger and in my fury, and for all whose wickedness I have hid my face from this city. 6 Behold, I will bring it health and cure, and I will cure them, and will reveal unto them the abundance of peace and truth. 7 And I will cause the captivity of Judah and the captivity of Israel to return, and will build them, as at the first. 8 And I will cleanse them from all their iniquity, whereby they have sinned against me; and I will pardon all their iniquities, whereby they have sinned, and whereby they have transgressed against me.9 And it shall be to me a name of joy, a praise and an honour before all the nations of the earth, which shall hear all the good that I do unto them: and they shall fear and tremble for all the goodness and for all the prosperity that I procure unto it.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Will you trust God for the forgiveness of your sins today. Trust that He is able to do all that He promised in the scriptures and much more. Seek His face while He may be found folks!

Jesus is Lord!

Shalom! Shalom!
