Positioning Yourself for God's Mercy

Listen to the Audio Version here: https://bit.ly/aud2538
Malachi 3:17 (BBE) And they will be mine, says the Lord, in the day when I make them my special property; and I will have mercy on them as a man has mercy on his son who is his servant.

Maria wondered why she was so fortunate in places other members of her family were found to be unfortunate. Some said she had a bright star while others said she was just lucky, but she knew there was something at work in her favor that made her survive where others fail and thrive where others were crushed. As she grew in spiritual understanding, she discovered that what she had enjoyed in life was the mercy of the Lord.

Maria remembered that from when she was young, unlike her siblings, she feared the Lord, and even though she was not born again, she was conscious of the judgment of God. As soon as she became born again, she was devoted to the Service of the Lord in her local church assembly. Later on in life, she understood that serving the Lord and being devoted to His work in truth is a reason why people obtain the Lord's mercy.

We have seen previously that it is because of the Lord's mercy that we are not consumed. The reason why we would make it and fulfill our eternal destinies is because of the Lord's mercy, it is not because of our merit. We have also seen that the Lord's mercy is not arbitrary, but a person who positions himself rightly can obtain it. For example, Psalm 103:13 reveals that the Lord has mercy on them that fear Him.

From today's Bible verse, we can learn that there is extra mercy reserved for God's children that serve Him. It is not enough to be a child of God, it is important also to be a child that serves. You are either an unreasonable son or a serving son. The sons that serve are the ones who have access to God's mercy and grace more than others.

Go into today remembering that no matter who you are or where you are as a child of God, you can serve the Lord and consequently have access to greater measures of grace because of mercy. Remember that it is possible to be busy in service that is not acceptable to the Lord because of impure motives. Ask the Lord to purify your motives as you serve Him and increase in His grace.

Confession: I live to serve the Lord. I am pleasing Him in all respects and fruitful in every good work.
