Wisdom For The Day Devotional 28 May 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Mercy Will Speak For You
TOPIC: Mercy Will Speak For You (TREM Devotional 28 May 2022)
“I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.” Ecclesiastes 9:11 (KJV)
It is not about how smart you are. It is not about how strong you are. It is not even about how skilled you are. Without the Mercy of God, we are nothing. What the nations of the world had witnessed in the last two years has revealed how much we desperately need the Mercy of God. The covid-19 virus brought the world powers to their knees. Every type of prediction, postulations, and calculation, fell like a pack of cards. No one had the answer! According to the book of Roman’s 9:16: “So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that showeth mercy.”
In times of uncertainties and difficulties, what you need is the Mercy of God. Wherever you may be in the journey of life, God will show you Mercy. By the reason of Mercy, God will turn things around on your behalf. God will overrule the powers of darkness in every area of your life.
Today, you may be faced with situations that you never imagined or expected that will happen. Rest in Him! Mercy will speak for you. God will not watch the enemy destroy His children. God will show His strong and Mighty Hands in your situation. He will never stop showing you Mercy. The last time I checked my bible, it still says: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10 KJV). God came that we may have life and life you must have. You won’t have death, you won’t have sickness, you won’t have tragedy and you won’t have misfortune. Life is your portion. This is God’s will for you.
You will not be destroyed! Mercy will continually speak on your behalf. No power can change that! Mercy is the very nature of God. Therefore, He yearns to show you Mercy. He takes delight in showing Mercy. “Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger forever, because he delighteth in mercy.” (Micah 7:18 KJV)
Psalms 127:1-2, 1 Peter 2:9-11
