Psalms 136:1-26 (23)He remembered us when we were humiliated— because his mercy endures forever. (GW)
David wrote about God’s mercy in our text because he had the understanding that mercy triggers the manifestation of miracles. Citing the example of the ten lepers in Luke 17:11-19, their first statement was, ‘Jesus, Master, have mercy on us’. Similarly, Bartimaeus attracted Christ’s attention after he said, ‘Jesus, thou son of David, have mercy on me’ (Mark 10:46-52). Again! When Christ spotted the man at the pool of Bethesda, He was moved by sympathy before healing him (John 5:1-15).
Beloved, divine mercy is when one is guilty but got pardoned and acquitted, such as our transformation from the sinful nature (Adamic) to life in Christ (Romans 6:6-14). Therefore, more than ever, we need the Lord’s compassion, because it is the basis for receiving anything through grace (Hebrews 4:16). Maybe you are a liar, manipulator, murderer, cultist, fornicator, and adulterer, among other things (If you repent, mercy will speak for you— Ephesians 2:8-9). You might also have prayed but all to no avail. Humble yourself, activate your faith, and cry out for mercy, it shall work for you!
Hymn: I Will Sing of the Mercies of the Lord — James H. Fillmore (1864)
1. Lord Jesus, I repent today, please have mercy on me and cleanse my sins! (confess)
2. Father, by Your mercy, let my condition move You to action (mention)
1. Father, this month, point me out to my destiny helpers.
2. I receive the grace to forgive every atrocity done against me.
3. Lord, restore every home, nation, the church, and individual, to their divine purpose.
‘Before anything is received, we must attract mercy.’
