You are God from beginning to the end, there is no argument, You are God all by Yourself…. You are God! You are God from beginning to the end, there is no argument, You are God all by Yourself!!!// Glorious God, Beautiful King, Excellent God we bow before Thee….

Faithful Father we bow before Lord… we worship You, we give You Praise…We adore Thee Ancient One for Who You are…glory be to Your Name O God! Who can be compared with Lord…Faithful are You Father… Great are You Lord… You are God from beginning to the end… Because You the Beginning and the End…Matchless Father we bow again, again before Your presence with twenty and four elders in heaven we shout Holy , Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, which was, and is and is to come…. Father with elders we cast our crown before the Throne, saying. Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive Glory and Honour and Power: for Thou hast created all things, and for Thy pleasure they are and were created…

Beloveth… Our God is a good God… shout Alleluia!!!!!!! Today we will consider the “Mercy” …. Of God… the twin sister of grace…..Praise the Lord….

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end…Lam 3:22.

The old testament Hebrew word ‘chesed’ and the Greet New Testament word ‘eleo’ – both used for mercy- are similarly defined and translated in our English bibles as Kindness, Mercy, loving-Kindness, Unfailing Love, Tenderness, and Faithfulness. Mercy is similar to Grace yet has the addition of Pity, Compassion, Forgiveness, and Clemency for wrongdoing.

God always desire more for us. He not only mercifully forgives our sin, but He also wants to deliver us from ongoing struggles by His Divine intervention. I don’t know about you, but I need a whole lot of Divine intervention!

The trouble is, we want God to throw some pixie dust our way or wave a magic wand. Presto-chango! We want to be instantly free from our life’s encumbrances that keep us from much of the abundance He promised (Heb 12:1, Jn 10:10).

Nevertheless, there are crucial issues of our surrendering to Him completely, learning to battle the enemy effectively in His Name, and securing fought-for freedom with His help so that we don’t ever want to travel these unhealthy paths again.

His deliverance usually does come in a moment (Lk 4:41), yet our walking out in the freedom He has secured for us is where we experience struggle (Matt 12:43-45) and where we need His grace and mercy most. We are complex being who have lived so long in strongholds of shame, habits, or addictions that breaking the pattern of unhealthy behaviour can seem daunting. Nevertheless, He can unravel every knot in our souls and lives that have tripped us for years (1 Jn 3:8).

Ultimately, the Holy Spirit is after a deep and thorough work of healing and deliverance in our lives for His glory and our benefit. He just loves us so very much! Walking continually in more significant freedom freed us to enjoy our Father and allow Him access to pour to pour His Holy Spirit through us to reach a dying and weary world.

The Lord’s grace and mercy come to our rescue and afford Him and us the ability and time it takes so that total freedom can happen (Jn 8:31-32).

Beloveth, is of His mercies that we are not consumed…. It is of His mercy and grace that the apostles of old had utterance and preached Christ…. The once Peter who was timid and afraid suddenly became strong, bold and fearless… it is in God we live, and move, and have our being;… (Acts 17:28).

Do want God to use you as He used this apostles of old… beloveth you need to embrace Christ… You need to soak yourself in Him, surrender to Him…Moses want to deliver the children of Israel by his power; he fled from the land of birth for forty year for the fear of Pharaoh. Abraham failed integrity test and that resulted in Ishmael… same with Peter and many who depended on their  strength to serve God….

we in this ministry are blessed because God has given us His Mercies and Grace so that we can fulfill destinies….. Come along for more:

When they observed the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and knew that they had been with Jesus.—Acts 4:13

There is no mistaking a life transformed by God! The disciples had been vain and fearful when Jesus enlisted them. James and John sought to outmaneuver their fellow disciples in order to gain the places of greatest honor next to Jesus (Mark 10:37).

Over and over the disciples’ actions showed that they did not truly understand who Jesus was (John 6:7–9; Mark 6:49). Even after three years with Jesus, Peter was afraid to confess Christ before a young servant girl (Matt. 26:69–75). Anyone who knew these men would realize they were not the kind of people on which you build a worldwide kingdom. Yet something happened to them as they were with Jesus.

The Holy Spirit transformed them, giving them new boldness and wisdom. Now they could perform miracles and preach fearlessly and persuasively to multitudes. Even their enemies noticed in their changed lives the same power they had witnessed in Jesus.

Sometimes we desperately want others to believe that we have changed, that we are more godly, more devoted, more Spirit-controlled. It is not necessary, however, for those who have been truly transformed by Christ to convince others of the difference; the change will be obvious.

Don’t become too introspective, always focusing on yourself and the small changes you see happening over time. As you walk with Jesus daily, let the witness of the changes taking place in you come from others and not from you.

If you have to prove to someone that God has really changed you, He has not. Those around you will surely notice when your life has been transformed by your relationship with Jesus.

Beloveth… I see the Spirit of God transforming you from glory to glory…. a new is emerging through the Divine Mercy and Grace that is made available to you… Alleluia somebody… !!!

I love You Jesus… have Your way in the lives of your children, clothed us with Your Divine Mercy and Grace… may it evident in our life through the way we will serve You in the lives of those you placed around us Amen!!!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
