YOUR DAY OF MERCY COMETH

I decree into your life today Wednesday 25th July, 2018 being a day of mercy that ; Because of the mercy of God will locate you today, the power that lifted the heaven above the earth without pillars shall lift you up to the greater height of your life.I pray that the bridge linking you with failure, disgrace, shame and poverty is destroyed by mercy today.

The high and thick fence isolating you from your helpers shall be destroyed today by the mercy of God. Mercy will relocate you today from a debtor, to become a creditor, from single to married, from employee to employer, from failure to success and from weakness to strength. I pray that every issue that makes you sad shall begin to vanish and events that will make you happy will begin to emerge by the mercy of God Almighty in Jesus name. Amen.

Psalms 102:1-11 says, “ Hear my prayer, O LORD, and let my cry come unto thee.  Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. 3 For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth. My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread. By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin.  I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert. I watch, and am as a sparrow alone upon the house top.8 Mine enemies reproach me all the day; and they that are mad against me are sworn against me. For I have eaten ashes like bread, and mingled my drink with weeping, Because of thine indignation and thy wrath: for thou hast lifted me up, and cast me down. My days are like a shadow that declineth; and I am withered like grass.”

"Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily"
(Psalms 102:2). A common inscription in most Christian homes had a liner about Jesus Christ, the unseen GUEST. Indeed, He is the silent Watcher in the home. He knows about the storm and challenges in the family.

Nothing escapes Him. And He is not unfamiliar with the devil’s antics.The Psalmist in the text knew where to turn to as he absorbed the gale of woes that came upon him. He did not have to consult an oracle of the ungodly. Nor did he panic in surrender to fate. He also did not have to curse God or rail on destiny. He did not lay any blame on some ancestral or generational curse.

Instead of all these unhelpful approaches, he did a realistic appraisal of his situation and discovered the enormity of his condition. Although it was not a helpless situation, he knew it was clearly beyond what he or mortal man could take care of. He needed to go to the Higher Authority, a Supernatural Force namely Jehovah God of Israel. Having identified where succour and solution could be accessed, he presented his case to God.

He hid nothing from Him. The faithful God does not reject those who heed His call. He says in Isaiah 45:22: "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else". When you are born again and focus on heaven, you will not be trapped in the snare of the devil to frighten you with short-lived challenges of life. No matter how boisterous the wind and waves, know that your boat cannot sink. Just rest on Jesus’ unfailing promise.

And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life (1 John 5:11-12). Eternal life is the nature of God, and the Bible says this life is in Christ Jesus. This is the life Jesus referred to when He said, “For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself” (John 5:26). Jesus had that life, which He received from the Father. It’s translated “eternal life” in English because of the limitation of the English language; this is the “God-life” or “the God-kind of life.”

There’s the animal life; there’s the plant life; there’s the human life, and then there’s the God-life: the life of Deity. Anyone who has the Son of God, has this life, and anyone who doesn’t have the Son of God doesn’t have eternal life. That’s what we read in our opening scripture.

It doesn’t matter that someone is your sibling, your father, mother, friend, co-worker or classmate; if they don’t have the Son of God, they don’t have eternal life, and that’s serious trouble. It means they’re subject to the darkness and depravities of this world; they’re under the dominion of spiritual death. It’s the reason we preach, and it’s the reason you must do everything possible to ensure your loved ones receive eternal life which is in Christ Jesus.

The Bible says, “…the gift of God is eternal life...” (Romans 6:23); that gift is only available in Jesus Christ. He came that we may have life to the full (John 10:10 AMP). The vibrant, glorious, transcendent life of God in its fullness is what Jesus brought; it’s no ordinary life; and if you believe in Him, that’s what you’ve received into your spirit. You don’t have to “feel” it in your body first to be conscious that you have eternal life; it’s in your spirit.

Your consciousness of your divine nature and origin is so important. Recall the words of the Apostle John: “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life” (1 John 5:13).

2 Peter 1:3-4 ; According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: [4] Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

1 John 5:11-12 says , And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. [12] He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.

Everything we’ve covered thus far forms the non-negotiable foundation for prayer. The moment prayer becomes anything other than a conversation with God, we’ve made it into something it’s not. But what do you say when you’re talking to God?

This question is all-important. One answer is that we can say anything to God. He’s listening, and he cares. It doesn’t matter how trivial, difficult, outraged, or perplexed your prayers are: God cares about what you care about. And a whole lot more. So if you care about other people, you should expect those people to come up in your conversations with God.

There is a statement that pops up a few times in the New Testament: “If you ask anything in [Jesus’] name, [the Father] will give it to you.” How’s that for a blank check? But looking at the context of just one of these statements will give some insight into what Jesus wants us to be praying for.

In John 15, Jesus tells us that in remaining connected to him, we find life. And we find his life flowing through us to others (a concept he refers to as “bearing fruit”). When he tells us that God will grant our every request, he adds “so that you will love one another” (v. 17). In other words, praying for people is a form of love. Jesus’ love flows through you as your love for other people leads you to pray for them. This is what we mean by “intercessory prayer.” It’s a sign of health in your conversations with God when you find yourself naturally talking to God about more and more aspects of your life. If you care about it, God wants to hear about it.

Psalm 1:3  And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper. ''that bringeth forth his fruit in his season''

Here if you carefully look at the word it says the tree brings forth his fruit in his season. It also says that ''it brings forth'' and it does not say ''it may bring forth'. Which means 1. Each tree has its own season. 2. The tree knows the season in which it needs to bear the fruit.

Today many of us are there in the right season but we are unable to bear the fruit. When it is time to get a Job we do not get it. When it is time for marriage it delays. When it is time to get pregnant the womb is empty. When it is time to get education we are unable to go to school because of poverty etc. Yes we can see many examples.

If you read Joh 15:4 it says  "Abide in me, and I will abide in you. Just as the branch cannot produce fruit by itself unless it abides in the vine, neither can you unless you abide in me. If you think things are delaying in your life and if you are murmuring about it then check your relationship with the word of God. Repent and surrender then you will see the glory of god.

It says in Isa 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

“The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives” (Deuteronomy 14:23 TLB). Whatever you want God to bless, you have to put him first in. So if you want God to bless your finances, you have to put him first in your money. This is the principle of tithing: You give the first 10 percent of your income back to God.

Here are four verses that explain the promise, the purpose, the place, and the day for tithing.

First, Proverbs 3:9-10 gives the promise about tithing: “Honor the Lord by giving him the first part of all your income, and he will fill your barns with wheat and barley and overflow your wine vats with the finest wines” (TLB). God says that if you honor him with the first part of your income, he will bless you financially.

Why does God tell us to tithe? Deuteronomy 14:23 says, “The purpose of tithing is to teach you always to put God first in your lives” (TLB). God doesn’t need your money, but he wants what it represents: your heart. He wants you to trust him.

Where should you tithe? Do you tithe to United Way? Or do you tithe to your brother who’s been out of work for three years? No. That’s charity. Tithing is an act of worship. It goes to God.

Malachi 3:10 says, “‘Bring to the storehouse a full tenth of what you earn . . . Test me in this,’ says the Lord All-Powerful. ‘I will open the windows of heaven for you and pour out all the blessings you need’” (NCV). The storehouse is the temple or the place where you worship God.

When are you supposed to tithe? You do it on the day you worship. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 16:2, “On every Lord’s Day each of you should put aside something from what you have earned during the week, and use it for this offering. The amount depends on how much the Lord has helped you earn” (TLB). When you give to God on the first day of the week, the first part of your day, and the first part of your money, you’re declaring, “You’re really number one in my life.”

Notice that the verse says to “put aside.” You’ve got to plan this! Tithing should not be an impulsive thing. You’ve got to plan for it so that you are honoring God’s plan and purpose for tithing. Then you can watch how God blesses and uses you and honors his promise in your life. You need life in you and in all you do. Life is situated only in Jesus.

Accept Jesus today. Jesus loves you.
