The wonders of mercy
Mercy is an uncountable forgiveness or compassion towards someone over offences committed. According to our text, God’s promise towards Abraham and his wife, Sarah about having a child almost looked impossible, humanly speaking. But God, through the wonders of His mercy visited them after all they went through, including Abraham’s mistake of having a child (Ishmael) through his maid, Hagar.
The wonders of mercy caused Jacob to be preferred by God and not his elder brother, Esau. God did this in order to achieve His purpose for humanity. In Romans 9:15, God said: “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy.” This means, for anyone to enjoy God’s mercy, God alone decides. It isn’t by educational background, societal connection or family popularity. It is purely God’s mercy. Today, may God’s mercy visit you in every area of your life in Jesus’ name, amen!!
God’s mercy abounds for all, but there are saints and enemies to this, some of which are SIN, proverb 14:34, nonchalant character towards God’s work and His priests (Lev 10:1-2), murmuring and complaining (ex 17:3), lack of faith in God (Gal 3:6) and lack of appreciation towards God’s works (Psa 136:1)
