YOU ARE A CANDIDATE FOR MERCY AND GRACE
“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion fails not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.” Lam. 3:22-23
Although the year is coming to an end, I have a word for you: You are a candidate for God’s mercy and grace. No matter the lies the devil has magnified to you, I come today to announce to you that you are still a candidate for God’s mercy. It does not matter the challenges that you have faced this year, your tomorrow is better because the mercy of God is available to you today. The interesting thing is that God is very much aware of your past, present and future and loves you all the same. Don’t let the devil rob you of His mercies; whatever it is, simply confess it, forsake it and embrace His mercy and grace.
Mercy is God not giving you what you deserve – you deserved to die, but mercy says no; you deserved to be disgraced, frustrated and humiliated but mercy says no; you deserved not to have a child but mercy says no; you deserved to die of lung cancer because of the several sticks of cigarette you have taken, but mercy says no – mercy says no to judgment. Grace is God giving you what you do not deserve – you do not deserve to live, but grace gives you life; you do not deserve health, grace gives you health; you do not deserve peace, but grace gives you peace; you do not deserve a place in the presence of God, but grace gives you a seat right in the throne of grace – grace says ‘yes’ to God’s goodness on your behalf.
So if God has made mercy and grace available to you, why would you ever yield to the lie of the devil? Today, I challenge you to embrace mercy and grace and see them at work in your life for good. Don’t let the devil intimidate you any further, you are a candidate for God’s mercy and grace. So come to Him just as you are and let the blood speak for you today.
