MERCY FOR TODAY
“This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope. Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions FAIL NOT. They are NEW every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-23 NKJV
These past 15 months have been some of the most intense challenges we have ever personally faced. As you know we are also seeing increased spiritual warfare in our nation and the world. The GOOD NEWS is that it’s obvious that JESUS IS COMING SOON! Our enemy, satan, knows that his time is short and he is trying to stop the plan of God for the greatest revival our world has ever seen! MILLIONS who are in the “valley of decision” are going to make the decision for JESUS right before He returns to rescue His church and rapture us to heaven.
Are you ready? Not just to meet Him face to face but have you answered the call? If we have been more focused on the problem instead of the answer, we can turn that around simply by meditating on His mercy. The scriptures above have brought us such strength and peace in these turbulent times. Notice that the author, Jeremiah, says that in the midst of bad circumstances, he CHOSE purposefully what he was thinking about! When he chose to focus on the MERCY of God, his discouragement turned into hope! We never run out of hope because God’s tender mercies are new EVERY morning!
Psalms 145:8-9 “The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy. The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.” NKJV
Mercy can be defined as, “That benevolence, or tenderness of heart which disposes a person to treat an offender better than he deserves. An act of favor. Compassion manifested towards a person in distress.” (Webster’s 1828 dictionary) One of the meanings of God’s Mercy (Chesed) is eternal or everlasting love. Now and for all eternity we will enjoy God’s unfailing love because of our covenant with Him by the precious blood of King Jesus.
“But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting.” Psalms 103:17 NKJV
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me ALL the days of my life…” Psalms 23:6 NKJV
“…Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.” Psalms 103:4 NKJV
Whatever you are facing today, please stop whatever you are doing and begin to praise The Lord with these words: “Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.” This was Israel’s battle cry in II Chronicles 20:21. As they began to praise Him for His great mercy, God caused their enemies to turn on each other and destroy one another. Israel just walked into their camp and took all the spoil!!
Now that many churches are reopening and we are back on the road, we’d love the opportunity to share the love of God with you in person. Please check our itinerary www.mylon.org for when we are going to be in your area! Also, don’t forget the FREE On the Road to Freedom podcast where you can get the “Word for the week” on the go. We received a report last week that in just six months we have had thousands of downloads from across the globe: North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Oceania. Praise God your faithful giving and prayer is literally taking the message of the gospel around the world!
As you sow your holy seed this month, remember that whatever we need from The Lord, Hebrews 4:16 says that we can “come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” God loves you and He is FOR YOU! We are praying for you to rest in God’s faithfulness and everlasting love!
We love you too,
Mylon & Christi
