Hope In God’s Mercy

Focus: Psalms 33:18-19 - KJV

18. Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; 19. To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.

1 Samuel 17:34-37

Many years ago, on a beautiful morning like this, a young man rose up from his house and went to ply his trade which simply was to raise and nurture his father’s sheep. Unknown to him, death was lurking in the corner waiting for him to arrive at the worksite. Incidentally, the young lad was one that feared God and had no other place he turned when he required mercy. Which was why he only confessed his sins to God and not necessarily the offended, per time. By the end of the day, when the agent of death came for him, the eye of his God was upon him to deliver him and he did not know where the power came from, to slay a lion and subsequently a bear. For a user of this Guide, every agent of death waiting to encounter you shall waste its life for your sake, in Jesus’ name.

On another occasion, the same lad was sent to give food to his brothers at the war front not knowing that the agent of death was already waiting to kill everyone at the venue, including his king, his brothers and indeed an entire army. However, by reason of the eye of God being upon him who hoped in God’s mercy, he was able to push death back away from his country. For a user of this Guide, because the eye of the Lord is upon you, every plan to destroy your generation is aborted because of your presence, in Jesus’ name. It follows that not only does the Lord save those that fear Him from death, He spares others also for his sake. God does not only save from death when His eye is upon us; He saves from famine also. That is the story of Isaac sowing in the land in the days of famine and getting a hundredfold return that made fellow dwellers envy him. By reason of what the Lord shall do for you today, many will come to envy you also, in Jesus’ name.

However, for the Lord’s eye to be upon us, we must fear Him and hope in His mercy. All those who do not obey the commands of God do not fear Him, and cannot expect this kind of blessing. Obeying the Lord’s commands is about living in love. To hope in His mercy is the extension of fearing Him. When we do fear Him and discover we are in error, we return to Him for His pardon, believing that He is faithful to forgive. Those whom the father rebukes, and are adamant shall perish suddenly. There is nothing that warrants our flexing muscles with God. Let us therefore, humble ourselves and put our hearts to wisdom that the Lord may receive us, and save us from the calamity that the enemy has placed in the corner. You do understand this. Yield to the counsel of God and not to your own understanding, and He will place His eye on you again, for your safety.

SOLUTION: Let us desist from calling God a liar. Fear Him by giving Him His honor and due reverence; ensure you love your neighbor as yourself; never go on as if nothing happened whenever you err; rather, always return to the mirror of the word to view yourself and seek the Lord’s mercy always.

Please pray: Thank you Lord for watching over us thus far for it is only by your mercy that we had not been consumed. We pray you dear Lord: let your eye continually be on us that death may never locate any of us in the name of Jesus. And by the same token, do not allow famine to ravage any of us, O Lord, in Jesus’ name.

If you are blessed by this post, kindly share with your contacts as well as others, that they may be blessed also. Thank you and may God bless you abundantly as you do so, in Jesus’ name.
