When the ten lepers saw Jesus, they lifted up their voices and asked Him to have mercy on them. Those lepers were faced with a situation that they could not change, and all they could call for was mercy. They found themselves in an awkward situation where they were disconnected from the entire society on account of their condition, and they asked for mercy. They faced what they couldn’t change, and they asked for mercy.
Friend, I pray for you: in those areas where you are unable to turn the tide by yourself, may the mercy of God speak on your behalf. May God’s mercy speak for you concerning the battles that are raging against you; may the mercies of God speak for you concerning the conspiracies of those that are against you; may the mercies of God speak concerning your health challenges; may the mercies of God speak concerning your future.
God’s mercy gives more than one truly deserves; and God’s mercy spares one from what one may also truly deserve. As surely as the Lord lives, may mercy speak for you louder than judgement. In the days when you are vulnerable in the hands of those that are against you, may mercy speak and lift you up. In the days when your failures and weaknesses disqualify you from attaining greatness, may mercy speak for you.
Mercy is when God stoops low as the Superior to serve man who is inferior. Mercy is when God sets aside judgement to let His love for you prevail; mercy is when your failures do not count as new chapters of favour are opened. In 2020, may mercy speak for you. As you run the race of your next level, may mercy speak for you. As you face adversaries that are stronger than you, let the mercy of God speak for you again and again.
If you have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus, then mercy is already your right in Christ. Mercy will speak for you; mercy will speak louder than judgement in your destiny.
