Today’s Promise : My mercy will overrule judgment
James 2:13 (WEB)
For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy.
Mercy triumphs over judgment.
Promise #82: My mercy will overrule judgment.
The Message Bible says… Kind mercy wins over harsh judgment every time. The law of mercy and grace actually overrules the law of judgment. I don’t know how you feel when you think about this promise, but I am thankful to God that His mercy does indeed win the day!
I am so glad that my God and Father does not treat me as my sins deserve, but is rich in His mercy towards me. Every day I get to experience His new mercies! (Lamentations 3:22-23) In Matthew 5:7, Jesus tells us Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (KJV) I am painfully aware that in my own life, I need all the mercy that I can get. So if I want mercy for myself, I better be a dispenser of mercy to everyone I meet too!
God loves mercy and He loves it when His kids are mercy-full. My prayer is that we would be a people who continue to walk in the amazing love and mercy that God bestows on us, so that we can be a vessel of His mercy to others.
May we actually love showing mercy (Micah 6:8) to those who don’t deserve it and be an expression of our heavenly Dad’s mercy to all those we meet. (Luke 6:36) …Even to those drivers who may cut off us on the highway! 🙂
The mercy of our God and Father will triumph over every form of judgment in your own life. Believe it. Receive it. Love it… and give it away!
