WELCOME TO “BEING DELIBERATE” WITH MAYOKUN OREOFE.
THIS MONTH WE ATTEMPT A DIGGING INTO THE SUBJECT OF “MERCY”.
MERCY IS DEFINED AS:
-compassionate or kindly forbearance shown toward an offender,
-the discretionary power of a judge to pardon someone or to mitigate punishment,
-an act of kindness, compassion, or favor:
Simply put, MERCY IS A DELIBERATE PARDON FROM OFFENCE, A DELIVERANCE FROM JUDGEMENT; AN UNDERSERVING COMPASSION/ KINDNESS.
SCRIPTURES FROM :
(NKJV)==>“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.””
(MSG)==>God told Moses, “ I’m in charge of mercy. I’m in charge of compassion.” Compassion doesn’t originate in our bleeding hearts or moral sweat, but in God’s mercy.
***GOD SAID TO MOSES I AM IN CHARGE OF MERCY. I AM THE CUSTODIAN OF MERCY; AND I METE IT OUT TO WHOMSOEVER I CHOOSE.
***IN ESSENCE GOD IS SAYING, the discretionary power of granting pardon to someone or mitigating punishment, IS OF HIM.
***IF IT THEN BE OF HIM, WHOM THEN SHOULD WE TURN TO BUT HIM FOR MERCY[FOR A MORE THAN PRESIDENTIAL PARDON]? GOD IS AT THE CENTER OF MERCY.
BELOVED, THIS SEASON I STRONGLY PASSIVE WE SHOULD CRY OUT TO GOD FOR PARDON/MERCY.
YOU MAY WONDER, WHY?
>Isa. 53:6a(NKJV)==>“All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way…”
>Rom. 3:23 (NKJV)==>“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
***WE ALL NEED GOD’S MERCY(PARDON) BECAUSE GOD’S WORD MAKES IT CLEAR THAT LIKE EVERY SHEEP, WE ALL AT SOME POINT ON OUR JOURNEY HAVE GONE ASTRAY. WE HAVE TURNED OUR OWN WAY(ONE WAY OR THE OTHER), DOING OUR OWN THING AS AGAINST HIS WILL; AND THAT TANTAMOUNT TO SIN!!!
***OH, MY DEAR FRIEND DON’T TELL ME YOU HAVEN’T SINNED.
>I Jhn. 1:8 (NKJV)==>“If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.”
***SAYING I HAVE NO SIN, IS A SELF DECIET; GOD HOWEVER CANNOT BE MOCKED. HE DOES NOT BEHOLD INIQUITY.
>Ps. 66:18 (NKJV)==>“If I regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear.”
***IF YOU RECALL, AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS MONTH I HAD MENTIONED, THIS SEASON IS A SEASON OF REWARD, BOTH FOR WRONG AND FOR GOOD.
I DONT WANT TO MISS A GOOD REWARD IN THIS SEASON… AM SURE YOU SHARE MY THOUGHTS.
TO THIS END WE NEED THE MERCY OF GOD!!!
MY PRAYER IS THAT THIS VERY MONTH, GOD THE CUSTODIAN OF MERCY, WHO CHOOSES WHOM TO SHOW MERCY TO, WILL BE GRACIOUS IN YOUR LIFE AND MINE; MAY WE FIND MERCY EVEN AS WE CRY OUT TO HIM IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.Amen!
