TOPIC: The Mercy Of God (III) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Devotional 8 October 2022)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 16, Jeremiah 17, Colossians 4:2-18, Psalm 118:17-29
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Psalm 51 (KJV)
1 Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions.
2 Wash me throughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
3 For I acknowledge my transgressions: and my sin is ever before me.
4 Against thee, thee only, have I sinned, and done this evil in thy sight: that thou mightest be justified when thou speakest, and be clear when thou judgest.
5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
6 Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward parts: and in the hidden part thou shalt make me to know wisdom.
7 Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
8 Make me to hear joy and gladness; that the bones which thou hast broken may rejoice.
9 Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all mine iniquities.
10 Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.
11 Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me.
12 Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
13 Then will I teach transgressors thy ways; and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, thou God of my salvation: and my tongue shall sing aloud of thy righteousness.
15 O Lord, open thou my lips; and my mouth shall shew forth thy praise.
16 For thou desirest not sacrifice; else would I give it: thou delightest not in burnt offering.
17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
18 Do good in thy good pleasure unto Zion: build thou the walls of Jerusalem.
19 Then shalt thou be pleased with the sacrifices of righteousness, with burnt offering and whole burnt offering: then shall they offer bullocks upon thine altar.

MFM Devotional For Today 2022 MESSAGE:
The power and benefits of divine mercy cannot be over-emphasised. We shall examine some of them today.
First, mercy will spare you and keep you from destruction. It was mercy that delivered the Israelites from 430 years of bondage. When God decided to kill all the firstborn in Egypt, the Israelites were spared. God gave the divine strategy for their preservation. Similarly, it was mercy that Rahab obtained and she and her family were spared during the destruction of Jericho. It was mercy that also spared Peter’s life and brought him out of Herod’s incarceration
Second, mercy will make you invincible. The person who received mercy cannot be contended with and destroyed. The one who contends with you will fall for your sake. David had obtained God’s mercy. Saul sought to kill him. Saul died a terrible and miserable death. It was the mercy of God that made the Israelites unconquerable for Pharaoh, the Amalekites, Sihon King of Amorites and Og the king of Bashan. The one who obtains mercy will always be more than a conqueror!
The third thing mercy does is that it helps destiny to fly. Mercy serves as divine wings upon which destinies fly, find expression and fulfilment. Paul said, “I am what I am by the mercy of God. Though he was the last apostle, Paul accomplished mightier things than many of the apostles that came before him. He also wrote two third of the New Testament. Mercy gave Paul’s destiny the power to fly and get fulfilled.
The fourth thing mercy does is that it triumphs over judgement. Jonah had disobeyed God and a whale had swallowed him. For three days and three nights, he faced the judgement. But when he cried to God in repentance and for mercy, God commanded the whale to vomit him. He had a second chance to correct his mistakes and obey God. Mercy bailed Jonah out. It triumphed over judgement for him. It was the same mercy that saved the people of Nineveh because they repented and were not destroyed when Jonah took God’s word to them.
Beloved, I encourage you to go to the throne of grace and receive mercy and help today.
