Psalm 103:11 says: “For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him.”
I am yet to see a man that is void of the mercy of God on the planet. The two guiding angels that God assigned to us are: GOODNESS AND MERCY to follow us by default throughout our lifetime. However, there are higher, greater, richer levels of MERCY that man can attract and enjoy. This higher level of mercy comes from fear/honour/reverence to God our creator.
Some people claim to fear God but in practical terms, they deny him. To fear God and attract His mercy, is to obey God, do His will, honour His word, and have a first-hand knowledge of Him in your life. Knowledge and fear of God to attract more mercy, must be demonstrated by us. For instance, the Bible says; “the soul that sinneth shall die.” This knowledge ought to make me and you fear God to attract His MERCY. To fear God does not connote panic, worry and anxiety. It implies acknowledging God as the owner of your life and daily obeying and depending on Him absolutely.
In the New Year, lets fear and honour God more in our lives, families, businesses, career, ministry, pursuit, in our churches, homes, government, polities, schools, place of work etc. God is willing and ready to express His higher, greater and richer level of MERCY to us throughout this New Year “if you hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God to observe and do all His commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set YOU on high above all nations of the earth.”
May you enjoy higher levels of Mercy/Favour/Blessing/Grace today and throughout the year in Jesus name, amen.
