99 Mercy May Be the Missing Part


Mercy May Be the Missing Part



Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.
Matthew 5:7 ESV

Most of us desire to receive more from the Lord than we have in the past. Maybe you think that because you have made so many mistakes and done so many wrong things that blessing will never come to you as it does to other people.

Let’s talk about that today, because you may need to wake up to the mercy of God in a brand-new way. Lamentations 3:22-23 says: “The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning.“
One way to receive more from God is by getting a deeper revelation of the mercy of God. To receive something from God, we must have faith. We all know that! We must believe that God has the ability to do what we ask for. And we must believe that He is willing to do it.

We have confidence in Him that He is a good God and that He is as He is portrayed in the Bible. We know that He is always the same. So there is not a day that He is moody or wants to bully us or to act contrary to His word, right? He is what He says He is and He is a God of His Word. His word to us is always “yes” and “amen.”

If all these things are true, then the problem lies within us. We are the ones who have difficulty believing, and maybe an even harder time receiving. If you doubt His willingness, you won’t be able to receive from Him. Or if you think He is angry, critical, or judgmental, you won’t be confident that He desires to bless you abundantly.

You may know that He has provided for all your needs, because everybody says so, and you have heard this message preached over and over again. But the fact is that His blessings are still not coming your way.

You keep wondering, “Why are others more blessed than I am?” Do you understand how amazingly merciful and kind He is? Once you do, you will be able to reach out and receive from Him. It is easy when you realize how much He loves you, how much He cares for you, and how much He wants to bless you despite yourself.

Always remember: He is a good God and His mercies are new every morning. EVERY MORNING, His mercies are new and are there for us to receive. Psalm 103 makes it very clear to us that every miracle ever done, was done because of His mercy and love. God is merciful in all His acts and all His ways.

I am convinced that a greater revelation of divine mercy will open a door for the blessings of God into your life. Begin meditating on the mercy of the Lord, and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal His mercy to you in a greater measure.

Will you make a choice to follow through on receiving His mercy? Your life will be forever transformed. Now, that’s the choice-driven life!

Prayer for Salvation:

God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead so I might have a better life now and eternal life in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. From this day forward, I’ll live my life for You to the best of my ability. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.

  1. Always reminded of the story of the debtor that wanted mercy, got it, then went and showed no mercy to the person who owed him money. Mercy is a two-way street. If you want it, you have to give it!

  2. Love this quote “I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice.” ~ Abraham Lincoln…Thanks for sharing on mercy! So true, we do reap what we sow 😉

  3. Great quote…it is good advice especially for this weary mom of 3. Thanks

  4. GREAT quote! THANKS for this post on mercy!!!

  5. It’s so easy to look at other people’s successes and wonder why you haven’t had the same. What you don’t know, though, is what they are going through on the inside and what their struggles are. Great post! 🙂

  6. This was such an encouraging reminder of God’s mercy. I’m always aware of it but I don’t think I take the time often enough to really meditate on it, read about it and just hold it in my spirit. Love this one, especially the corresponding scriptures.

    • Thanks Ron, yes mercy is something that we overlook easily because I think we focus so much on grace, but mercy and grace work very well together.

  7. I love the quote at the beginning from Abraham Lincoln. I’ve been reading a lot about him lately and how he changed in his giving of mercy over the years. Fortunately, we serve a God that has given us mercy, grace, and blessings from the beginning. Great blog post!

  8. I’ve always believed that if we feel like our blessings aren’t being answered that we need to stop ourselves and look around to what we have.. the answers will be found there… He is always there, always listening, always watching!

  9. Love the opening quote Olga! While you and I don’t share all of the same beliefs, I am always happy to see someone talking about God being merciful rather than being a punisher of all the sinners. Seems like a much healthier and beneficial relationship to have with God! Your articles always give me something to think about, thank you.

    • Jennifer, God is a good God. I think that people think that God is always after them because of some other experiences in their life and they compare them with how God would act with them. If we only knew how good God is, we would turn around and run to Him.
