Day 49 – The Mercy of God


‘There is no king saved by the multitude of a host: a mighty man is not delivered by much strength. A horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength. Behold, the eye of the Lord is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in His mercy’                Ps. 33:16-18

In our scripture reading today, you will notice that human source of strength is not adequate to deliver when trouble comes. You therefore cannot depend on your own ability. In the same vein, you need not be in despair because of your inabilities. In most cases, our confidence is on our ability to pray, and may be on the fact that we have great faith!  However, if we would learn to approach the Lord on the platform of his mercy, there will certainly be a light at the end of every tunnel we find ourselves.

You might have a family problem, or a case pending in court, ask God for His mercy; if you have any trouble in the marketplace, you just need to ask God to show you mercy. Remember this; a horse is vain thing in the day of battle, there is no king that is saved by the multitude of a host.

Whoever you might know, whatever you might have is not your source of safety. Whichever area of life you need help, ask God to show you His mercy, let your dependence be solely on him, and as you cry unto Him in faith, you will experience the divine assistance that you need. May you experience the mercies of God in all that you lay your hands upon to do today, in Jesus name. Amen.
