For he says to Moses, "I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion." – Roman 9:15
No man can achieve a supernatural feat or enjoy divine intervention without the operation of God’s mercy. This is understandable because man is fashioned to be dependent on God. So no one can assume a position where he does not need to cry for God’s mercy. The mercy of God is a divine attribute of God that makes Him to interrupt the danger and harm that accompany divine judgment. The mercy of God is the divine relief you need when your human efforts culminates in disappointments. It is also the divine intervention rendered to position your life for a turnaround. When God says that, “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and have compassion on whom I will have compassion”, He simply meant that His mercy is subject to His discretion.
However, you can connect with God’s mercy and stir Him to swing into action on your behalf if you place a high premium on His intervention. Those who take God out of the equation do have reasons to grapple with disappointment and question the integrity of God. But those who see God has the supreme factor in receiving their miracles and breakthroughs move God to demonstrate His glory in their situation. Blind Bartimaeus did not allow the opportunity for his healing to slip through his fingers. When he heard that Jesus was passing by, he had a strong assurance that God’s mercy would work out the recovery of his sight.
Aside from placing a high premium on God’s intervention, to provoke Him to act with mercy, it will also do you a power of good if you shower God with encomium of His mercies. The Psalmist has good grasp of what it means to shower God with His praise of mercies when he sang, “I will sing of the mercies of the Lord forever…” When you sing of the mercies of God, your life cannot sink into despair. The song of God’s mercies is a divine trigger to move God into speedy action for your change. Hence, don’t spend your time lamenting and questioning God’s fidelity. Rather expend such time to shower God with the encomium of His mercies and you will see God making you the candidate of His mercy. May the mercies of God never elude you as you journey through life in Jesus name.
