Wisdom For The Day Devotional 16 November 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – The Mercy Of God

TOPIC: The Mercy Of God (TREM Devotional 16 November 2022)

“O give thanks unto the LORD; for he is good: for his mercy endureth forever.” Psalm 136:1(KJV)


The word mercy unfortunately for most people has been misunderstood from a negative standpoint. They feel I have done something wrong let me ask for the mercy of God. In other word, the mercy of God will then force God to meet my need. We assume that the mercy of God is when I ask God to have mercy on me, meaning to forgive me from the standpoint of I messed up, I’ve blown it, I’ve failed him. This is the aspect at which the devil pushes out through the fall of man. It gives an impression that God is withholding something from man, that God wants man dead, that God is saying, you’ve blown it and I’ll throw you into the gallows waiting for your next mistake. That is the impression the devil has presented through the fall of man.

The truth is that He is a loving God and filled with loving kindness that releases, deploys mercy to mankind even when we never deserved it. The mercy of God is the loving kindness of God which is the disposition of God to us. God is love. Love never fails, love is long suffering, love is patient, and love never regards evil. So let me tell you right away that God is not withholding anything from you. If anything, He wants you blessed, and to experience turn around.

The bible tells us in Genesis about Adam. Ever before Adam was created God had already provided everything for the good of mankind and God finally made him the crown of His creation. Adam lived in a state of dominion and victory until the devil entered the scene. The scripture tells us that the devil entered and deceived Adam that what God said of you is not really what he made you. Adam fell for his lies. God did not leave man in this state. The mercy of God sought for Adam even in this condition even though God knew he had missed it. The love of God is everlasting and is not determined by what we do. Mercy is the only way God relates with us.

Thanks be unto God who always causes me to triumph in Christ and makes manifest His Knowledge by me in every place because I am the light of the world and the salt of the earth. I refuse to faint under any circumstance and though my outward man perishes, I know that my inward man is renewed day by day. (2 Cor 2:14, Matt 5:13-14, 2 Cor 4:17)

I shall lay-up gold as dust and as the stones of the brook. Yea the Almighty shall be my defence and I shall have plenty of silver The Lord has made me a blessing; I am blessed going out and blessed coming in. He will cause the shower to come down in its season; there shall be showers of blessing. The trees of my field will yield their fruit and the earth shall yield her increase and I shall be safe in the land. (Job 22:24-25, Deut. 28:3, Lev. 26:4)

Every day and in every way I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavours.

I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
