Bible Verse for Today
“For He says to Moses, “I will have mercy on whomever I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whomever I will have compassion.” (Romans 9:15)
God has promised to have mercy on whom he will have mercy but who are those that God will have mercy on? This is the question that most of us find ourselves asking every day. Something about God is that whatever we need, he wants us to ask.
Asking is important – the Bible, on different occasions told us that asking God is the best thing. God then promised that he would do everything we ask him. Matthew 7:7 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” The answer to the question of who God will have mercy on is, God will have mercy on anyone who asks for mercy. We need to ask for mercy every day.
Praying to God is important to us as Christians but what gives us the chance of we going to God in prayer is the mercy that we have obtained and we have obtained this mercy through Christ.
It is important that we cherish this and keep asking for more every day. It is by mercy that God will justify us because mercy will always triumph over judgment. James 2:13 “For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.” If we get this mercy by asking for it from God through Christ, we will become justified and we will receive God’s compassion which is followed by grace.
