The Light Daily Devotional – Appreciate His mercy
Focus: Appreciate His mercy
WORD FOR TODAY
It is the mercy of God that makes you who you are, and you will only fulfill your dreams by His mercy and grace alone. Always resist the urge to take glory, promote yourself or think of yourself more highly than you ought to each time you succeed!
“For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” Romans 9:15 NKJV
When a man begins to succeed or achieve great things, he is likely to believe that it is due to his own effort or intelligence. Life has shown that it takes more effort or intelligence to achieve remarkable success in life. If we consider how men work, pray, and push for things, we can see that several men would have accomplished great things. Most of the time, men’s labor does not always correspond to their achievements.
The word of the Lord made it clear that “It is vain for you to rise up early, To sit up late, To eat the bread of sorrows; For so He gives His beloved sleep. (Ps.127.2). As a result, when things go as planned or desired, it is God’s mercy at work. Grace is only made available when God has mercy on a man. Even if you pray and do your part in every situation, the fact remains that you need the supernatural to succeed.
Always thank God and appreciate his mercy in your life. Try as hard as you can to resist the temptation to take credit for God’s mercy in your life.
+ Do you acknowledge His mercy in your life?
Prayer: Lord! Thank you for your mercy and grace over my life in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: It is the mercy of God that works out things in the life of a man!
Have a Fabulous Week Ahead!
