IF NOT FOR HIS MERCIES
We have escaped like a bird from the fowler’s snare; the snare has been broken, and we have escaped (Psalms 124:7, NIV).
TEXT: Psalms 124:1-8
Gratitude always takes people above the ground but ingratitude often take people below the ground (which is the grave). If you are not grateful you will be grounded. You are not better than the people that have been grounded so give God praise. Hope you know some of your age mates are living under the bridge hopeless and helpless. A lot more are insane. Many more are dead but you are alive to the glory of God. Only fools don’t see reasons to praise God. The bible says: “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not” (Lamentation 3:22). Every man is consumable if not for the mercies of the Lord. It is the desire of the devil for you to be long dead but God’s mercies kept you. Remember the bible says: “The thief (devil) cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy” (John 10:10). That has always been the mission of the devil against your life but God won’t let him have his way rather the Spirit of God (The Power of God) is always raising His standard against the devil for your sake and the voice of God is always saying; “Touch not mine anointed, and do my prophets no harm (Psalms 105:15). Hallelujah!!! See how much the mercy of God is fighting for you because God loves you.
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Gratitude takes people above the ground but ingratitude takes people below the ground.
PRAYER: Father, thank You for all You have done for me and my entire family. May Your mercies keep defending us so we won’t be grounded in Jesus name.
