Lord Have Mercy

It has been awhile since I  have made an entry…I, like many other people have been swept up by the current events of our time….and with that said , all of us on the planet ,have had some sort of reaction to it.

Lord Have Mercy..is the name of a song , and it is also a response from the people , to a petition. If we have ever needed Mercy ,it is now ….. mercy ,for the knowledge  that we are imperfect  beings, we have  so many flaws….and with those flaws , we do not always say or do what we should.

I “could” use this as a platform to hammer my ideological philosophies into other people to oppress,embitter, embarrass…… the list is long as to the effect that these types  of behaviors would have on others…..I ,however,choose  to blog  about Hope….Faith ,and the greatest of these is also Love ….these things ,that the Adversary  wants to destroy…….by imposing such manipulation of our very souls……which he  has no care for….and he will stop at nothing to  attain the goal…of ripping us and others  out of the Hand of God….

 

I also choose, to take this time  to say,as these events present themselves….that it is up to me how I respond to them.People are unsure,confused ,and needing guidance,and I have heard more  people say , as well as myself, that this is causing us to Pray more…well we should to start with…I pray  for Peace…I pray for our leaders…..I pray for wisdom ,understanding…….you name it… I pray for our President-elect…whether or not I know him….he needs our prayers…you don’t have to know someone ,to pray for them ….we are to pray also  for those who didn’t win ….we must be the voice of reason…..and compassion for all these people  who need reassurance….God IS Sovereign……He knows what it takes for us to reach out to Him…… and what it will take to Save us…

We are called to pray for our enemies…..”Forgive them,Father ,for they know NOT what it is that they do!!!!” Jesus said those words as He was Crucified….

God’s desire is that every man have the Opportunity to come to Him …..He knows who will….. and won’t,He alone knows the depths  of the soul  of men…..He is the Only One  who plumbs the depths…..

He CAN do Miraculous things….He can also utterly Destroy us…..no trace..His Righteousness..His Justice…is Above our capacity to understand…we often ask why??  We go through trials ,to find ourselves  blaming God for something  that we did?

Death is the Consequence of sin. No way around that …except , to be the One Who holds the Keys to Life and Death…In the Garden…we inherited sin ,we became prone to  pain….hardship….and death.The spilling of innocent blood…..when Cain killed Abel…who gave the offeringthat pleased the Lord put us on a further course of destruction.

When we think of the Remedy,that God chose ,to set it Right….people say , well if your God is Almighty ,He cannot die…Why did He then decide to experience it Himself? The only word I can think of ,is Love….because IF He hadn’t….the grave would  be the end of all ….an abyss,there would be no redeeming of humanity ,unless our Father provided the Sacrifice Acceptable to Him….a pure,(the purest) and contrite,broken heart,He will not despise.

God literally gave of Himself to Save us….as He was the ONLY one who could redeem or “fix” the situation….through the trials of His Son..He showed us what is possible…that there is Hope,that we CAN have everlasting Life…if we choose to Love Him…..

He is Wonderful,our Counselor… Strength…..Our Physician,our Refuge…..our Comforter…He is our Defense…..He is our Shield…..He is the King of Kings….Lord of Lords….. Beginning without End ….the Alpha …..the Omega…..the First ..and the Last….

My point is…..

Trust in His Promises…

Rely on His Holy will

Ask for His Protection

Pray for His Mercy

Be thankful for His Grace

Love one another

Forgive and be forgiven

Count your Blessings……..
