THE MESSAGE

THE GRACE AND THE MERCY AND THE FAVOUR OF GOD : Psalms 147 :10-11
****************************************************

1.SIN
Luke 18:9-14

The mercy of God helps us to receive forgiveness for our sins . When we humble ourselves and acknowledge our sins and repent the Lord is merciful to forgive our transgressions and iniquities .

2.SICKNESS

Matthew 9:27 Mark 10 :46-52

The mercy of God helps us to receive healing for our sicknesses and diseases. Blind Bartimeus cried out for mercy and received healing from his blindness. We need to cry out for the mercy of God in times of illness and receive His healing .

3.SORROW

Philippians 2:27

The mercy of God helps us to avoid experiencing sorrow upon sorrow in our lives. The Lord had mercy upon Apostle Paul and did not allow him to experience sorrow upon sorrow. We should cry out for Godís mercy in order to avoid experiencing overwhelming sorrow in our lives.

4.SURVIVAL

Lamentations 3 :22 Psalms 5 :12

The mercy of God helps us to survive in this dangerous world . It is because of His mercies that we are not consumed . His favour surrounds us as a shield and protects us from the numerous attacks of the enemy . We should receive the Lord ís mercy and grace in abundance in our life in order to survive the dangers we face from satan , evil people , etc in this world.

5.SERVICE

Hebrews 4 :16 I Corinthians 15 :9-10

The mercy and grace of God helps us to serve Him effectively and powerfully. We are unworthy in our own strength and abilities . But when we receive the grace of God we are enabled to be serve Him . The Apostle Paul felt he was not even worthy to be called an Apostle because he persecuted the church of God. But the Grace of God transformed him and enabled him to labour more than anybody else. We need to receive the grace of God to overcome our weaknesses and limitations and serve God effectively. The Lord wants us to come boldly before the throne of Grace to receive grace and mercy to help in time of need.

6 SYMPATHY

Genesis 39 :21 Daniel 1:9

The grace and mercy of God grants us favour in the eyes of people and authorities. In the Old Testament the Lord granted Joseph favour in the eyes of the prsioner-keeper. He granted Daniel favour and tender love with the authority in charge of him. We need to receive this grace and favour of God in our lives which would cause us to receive favour and sympathy in the eyes of people who wield influence and authority over us.

7.SHAME

Luke 1: 25 , 58


The mercy and grace of God removes the shame and reproach from our lives . The Lord showed mercy on Elisabeth and removed her reproach by granting her a child . We should cry out to God for His mercy to remove the shame and humiliation we face in our lives .
