Wisdom For The Day Devotional 15 April 2023 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo: Mercy Will Speak For You
TOPIC: Mercy Will Speak For You (TREM Devotional 15 April 2023)
“Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: For the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.” Psalm 102:13 (KJV)
When God said He will arise and have mercy upon Zion, why did He decide to show mercy first? It is because mercy always goes ahead of favour. You must be first exempted from what could have befallen you, then undeserved blessings will follow.
Mercy is God’s exemption! It is God’s exemption from the judgment that you deserve. Yes, you messed up! You blew it! You failed! But mercy has spoken and there is nothing the devil can do about it. Therefore, you will be blessed.
Child of God, you are authorized to be blessed because of mercy. Whatever the enemy has stolen shall be restored. By reason of the mercy, restoration has come to you. It is yours! Don’t ask how it will happen! Just trust in His mercy. All things are possible to him that believes.
The children of Israel were in the wilderness for 40 years. They were wondering if they would ever get to the promised land. They were wondering how it can happen. There were giants in the land and the walls of the cities were high and thick. And they had been slaves all their lives. They forgot about the mercy of God. And as long as they kept on wondering, they kept moving round and round.
Stop wondering how your breakthrough will happen. Stop wondering how restoration will happen. Mercy will speak for you. “So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.” (Romans 9:16 KJV)
God is set to favour you. He is set to lift you up. He is set to restore everything that was stolen from you because the set time has come. It is the season! It is the moment of restoration. Whatever is delaying you from your testimony is dismantled. Go and prepare for your testimony day! The blessings you desire will come. The world will celebrate you. The different pillars of the world will answer you. There is an overflow coming in your direction in Jesus’ name.
Ephesians 2:1-9, Hebrews 4:14-16
