      The Mercy Of God
      By Dr. Zachery Tims, Jr.
      This week’s topic: The Mercy Of God

      If the devil had his way, you would be dead. He had plans to make you lose your mind, jump off a bridge, take you out with drugs, get you shot up in an alley. The good news is, the angel of Mercy said, "NO!"  

      Most of us survived many things that would have taken the average person out. We outlasted the storms, we weren't beaten down by the attacks, we pressed our way to win the victory. We are blessed to have the hand of God's mercy and grace upon us of which most of it is unseen and untold. We haven't a clue, if only we knew what could have happened that God's hand of mercy prevented.

      Mercy will follow you wherever you go...to the operating room...to the jail, to the divorce court, to the bank, and everywhere. "Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life..." Psalm 23:6  

      Do you realize that no matter how bad your situation is, it could be worse? There are demonic assignments that have been released from the pit of hell against you. God's grace shields us from seeing the level of spiritual warfare that circles the atmosphere around us, strategizing to attack us.

      How many tragic accidents have been missed or how many bullets aimed at you missed their mark? Think about how much you thought he or she was the right mate for you, but God didn't let it happen to keep you from getting AIDS.

      Mercy said, "NO!"

      Do you know we even receive mercy for things we did wrong? Think about the things we got away with and didn't get caught. Jesus uses an example in the Gospels of the woman caught in adultery in John 8. These were church folks, people of God. They deliberately contrived to set up this woman so she would be caught in sin.

      But Mercy said, "NO!" Jesus bent down and wrote in the dirt to show what true mercy was in action. Each one walked away because they ALL had sin in their lives and they too deserved to be punished for something.

      Church folks can be devilishly mean and blatantly wrong at times. Not one of us has it all together. What would we do if God exposed all of our secrets? But mercy says, "NO!" This doesn't mean we willfully commit sin and take God's forgiveness and grace for granted. There are always consequences for our actions, good or bad.

      But when we come under an outright attack of the devil, and need help the most. "It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion fails not. They are new to us each day." Lamenations 3:22. He sits on the Mercy Seat of love and forgiveness.

      God is still working on us. Therefore, let us "Judge not that ye be not judged." The more merciful you are to others, the more mercy you'll get back, "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy." Matthew 5:7.

      Have you ever thought about what Mercy looks like?
      It looks like you.  

      Scripture Of The Day: "It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassion fails not. They are new to us each day." Lamentations 3:22-23.
