For anyone who feels weak in faith, who may be up against what feels like insurmountable odds, I’ve got good news for you. Actually, it’s great news!
What God opened up for me today, I feel strongly prompted to put in this blog (and video) because I’m confident this is an urgent word for some.
We so often think of faith as something that releases or activates the power of God, and I believe that it does. We also know that without faith it is impossible to please God. (Hebrews 11:6)
And in our attempt to build our faith, we often miss out on something more powerful… the mercy of God.
We attempt to apply our faith to circumstances in hopes of seeing them change. In the process we sometimes, unwittingly, are putting our faith in our method or in our faith itself. We wonder, did I say the right thing? Did I say the wrong thing? Did I have unbelief?, Did I not have enough faith? etc., etc.
You try so hard to believe for a healing, for a promotion, or dare I say, to win the lottery. And it seems at best, to be hit and miss. Probably a lot more miss, than hit.
But I want to tell you about something you can have 100% confidence in…
It is the mercy and loving kindness of the Lord. I’m going to share an incredible story in a video down below, but first I invite you to read what the Bible says about mercy…
“The eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him, on those who hope in his mercy.1 His mercy is great toward those how fear Him.2 The earth is full of His mercy3 and He takes pleasure in those who fear Him and hope in His mercy4. Mercy and truth BELONG to those who devise good.5 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life.6 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth7 and he who trusts in the Lord, shall be surrounded by mercy8 for the Lord is a God FULL of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.9 God is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us.10 So let us come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in our time of need.11 For the Lord is good and ready to forgive, and abundant in mercy to all those who call upon Him.12” (Scripture references are at the bottom of this page.)
Now, here’s the video I promised you. There is much more to share with you on the topic of mercy. Perhaps in my next blog. May peace and love be multiplied in your life today!
