The Heart Of Mercy Manifesting In Your Life

Neil Vermillion —  January 30, 2020 —  Comments

I am extending my mercy to you. I have poured out my mercy and forgiveness generously to all. I see your struggle, and I see your failures. I see your great need, and I see how you treat yourself. I see how you treat others, and how you wish the world was different. So today I am reminding you of my mercy already afforded you. Allow yourself to receive my mercy, but also enjoy, my mercies, for they are new every morning. (1)

You still do not know my ways. My ways are gentle, and kind. My ways will draw you closer to me. My ways will bring you to fruitfulness and abundance. My ways will give you delight and lasting satisfaction. My ways are different than your ways, so allow me to teach you of my mercy, as you learn to be merciful. I see your struggles and failures, and many times you are too hard with yourself. Many times you are too hard with your neighbor. So allow me to teach you of my great mercy, for I delight to show you the bounty of my mercy, and you will be blessed because of it. (2)

As you learn to receive my mercy you will be changed. Your heart will be softened, and compassion and understanding will be allowed to flourish. Your hard heart tends to stifle compassion in your zeal for justice. In your desire for righteousness you demand justice, but in doing so you neglect compassion. So it will be in my mercy I will train your hearts to experience greater compassion. As you bathe yourself in my mercy, drink it in, and soak it up, you will have greater understanding of who I am. You will have greater understanding of your neighbor, who he is, who he is not, and how much I also love your neighbor. (3)

You easily lose sight of the collective, and become focused on yourself. You become focused on your own situation, plans, hurts, and needs, but I see you all, and I love you all. So allow me to broaden your perspective by accepting my mercy, and by extending my mercy towards others. You have been forgiven much, and I have shown you great mercy already. So remember this in your dealings with others, and allow my heart of mercy and compassion to manifest through you into others. I delight in showing mercy, and my mercy flowing through you to others, will also bring me such delight, as we share together. (4)

Allow yourself to erase your ledger. Allow yourself to extend mercy to one another. Receive my mercy for yourself, but also extend that same mercy to each other, and so do generously, for as you do, you will come to know my heart in greater measure, and you will enjoy yourself as you continue to bring delight to me.
