“Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other.” (Psalm 85:10).
Mercy is an extension of Love shown to us by God. It is an extension of His person and not a result of our works. Such was the prayer of David,”He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” Ps.23:3. The mercy of God is not premised on our works or rights, it is a privilege enjoyed.
We must never get to a point were we outgrow God’s mercy. We ought to always ask for His mercy on a continual basis. It is not because we commit sin or do things wrong, but all our life must submit to His mercy. Without His mercy that endures forever, we cannot endure forever. We will tire out and fade away. Such was the position of Peter when Jesus prayed for him ahead of his denial. When we come to the Lord, what we must seek is mercy.
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Heb.4:16.
Truth is the yardstick for judgement. It is a divine representation of God’s life that cannot be diluted.
It is by the Mercy of the Lord that we can walk in the Truth. We need mercy and truth to produce righteousness and peace. Many just seek after the truth without obtaining mercy and that’s why though they look like displaying righteousness, but it will lack the fragrance of peace. We need the mercy of the Lord so as to walk in the truth. Mercy and truth must become aligned in us and this will produce righteousness and peace. No man can walk in righteousness and peace without the operation of mercy and truth. It is the twin operation of God that will bring us into perfection. To walk worthy of His calling, we must walk according to Truth and in Mercy so as to fully enter into the life of the kingdom which is Righteousness, Peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost.
May we continually walk in the truth by the mercy of the Lord. May we begin to live in righteousness and peace, because that’s the Kingdom.
