2023, THE YEAR OF GREATER HONOUR
5th January 2023
BENEFITS OF GOD’s MERCY. Lk6:35-36
The benefits of God’s mercy include peace, love, and joy. None of the behaviours Luke speaks of come naturally. In Christ, mercy and truth meet together. Christlike people see the world through His perspective, and His love flows through their lives. When we are merciful to others, when we submit to His merciful ways, we choose to acknowledge peace. Apart from Christ this is impossible. God’s mercies are new every morning. Ps 86:15-16 says, “But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. Turn to me and have mercy on me; show your strength on behalf of your servant; save me, because I serve you.”
“Mercy” I repeat is one of the characteristics of God, and It is mentioned 262 times in the King James Version, 157 times in the English Standard Version, 99 times in the New American Standard Bible, 170 times in the Amplified Bible, and 146 in the New English Translation, according to Bible Gateway. However, it is mentioned additionally as “mercies,” and “merciful.”
“Mercy is what gets us out of trouble”
Mercy reveals how just and fair, yet loving and compassionate, God is.
God saving hand is released upon your ways in this season.
Dear Lord, show me your way and make my heart cling to your word.
My father my Lord, reveal unto me the sweetness of your presence.
