Open Heavens 18th January For Teens By E A Adeboye

GOD is sovereign. Being the highest of all, He cannot be queried over what He does. He went into a crowd of sick people, healed one man and left (John 5:2-9).

What made Him pity this particular man? Sheer mercy! The man did not pray, neither did he know the person of Jesus. After his healing, when people asked him why he was carrying his bed on a Sabbath day, he said the one who healed him asked him to carry his bed. Read: Open Heavens 18th January 2018

When he was asked for the person’s name, he had no clue. He did not do anything to qualify for that healing, but God’s mercy singled him out.

Are you presently in a situation where you do not qualify for God’s blessings? God’s mercy will speak in your favour today in Jesus’ name.

Who are the recipients of God’s mercy? Matthew 5-7 says that if you sow mercy, you will reap mercy in return. If you want to receive mercy, avoid everything that has to do with wickedness. Read: Importance of Midnight Prayers

In addition, Psalms 103:11 says the fear of God gives you access into God’s abundant mercy. Loving God and keeping His commandments can also earn you mercy. What are you doing to receive God’s mercy?

KEY POINT:
Back up your request for mercy with works of mercy.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Genesis 42-43
Matthew 13:33-58

Hymn 12

1 Let us with a gladsome mind
praise the Lord for He is kind:
For His mercies shall endure,
ever faithful ever sure.

2. He, with all-commanding might,
filled the new-made world with light:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

3. All things living He doth feed,
His full hand supplies their need:
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithful, ever sure.

4. Let us then with gladsome mind
praise the Lord, for He is kind
For His mercies shall endure,
Ever faithfully, ever sure.
