DAILY MANNA FOR TODAY
The condition for receiving God’s mercy and peace is true repentance and obedience. Sin and disobedience will hinder mercy and peace and other blessings from God. He speaks peace only to those who turn away from unfaithfulness and backsliding. There is no peace to the wicked. No wicked person can go unpunished (Isaiah 57:21, Proverbs 11:21,31).
The text under consideration talks about the story of Israel after their apostasy. The Israelites suffered much afflictions and defeat in the hands of their enemies as a result of their sin. God however, forgave them and restored them to favour and blessing when they sincerely repented. When God forgives sin, He covers it completely.
People cannot continue in sin and still expect the grace of God to abound. His mercy and peace are part of His grace. Christ is the Truth personified and embodiment of righteousness. It is the acceptance of Christ, the Truth and Righteousness of God that brings mercy and peace. Christ is the Prince of Peace. To have peace, let the Prince of Peace enter your heart and rule your life.
Are you justly suffering from an affliction or oppression in the hands of enemies? The antidote is genuine repentance and faith in the atoning blood and power of Christ. This will bring true victory and God-given peace in your heart and soul.
The turmoil and troubles in a sinner’s heart can only be replaced with peace from Christ. His promise to you is, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you…” (John 14:27). Truth is, God is rich in mercy to all those who call upon Him.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: He that longs for mercy must first embrace truth.
