DESIRE MERCIES OF GOD!

Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions: That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon. (Daniel 2:17-18 KJV)

We are blessed to have a God of mercy, He hears us and grants mercy when we ask for it. Daniel was on the death-line, an executor was at his door step! When he enquired, he was told the king had passed a decree for the death of all wise men for their failure to tell and interpret his dream. Daniel asked the king for time as he knew exactly what he would do.

When he was granted time, he went straight to his house and made the thing known to his companions. These are prayer partners, people that one can petition the Lord with for any matter. Matthew 18:19 tells us that if two of you shall agree on a matter here on earth in prayer, it shall be done by our Father in heaven. God is ready to show mercy when we come together and pray united on any given matter.

There was a secret needing to be revealed and we know that God knows every secret.

The revelation of the secret would save the life of Daniel and the wise men across
the land. God pays attention to the prayers of the saints when they come together.

In verse 19, the secret was revealed to Daniel in a night vision and his response
was to bless God and give Him thanks. Whenever you have prayed, be ready for an answer. When the answer comes, do not forget to give Him thanks. Sometimes it does not come the very moment you have prayed but His answer is on the way.

I know you have petitions in your heart today, find two or three prayer partners
that you can desire the mercies of God with. As you do so, heaven is ready to grant you answers. I pray that as you do so, may you urgently be presented with answers.

Declare this,
My God is a revealer of all secrets. As I approach the throne of grace, I do it with
boldness and I am receiving answers as a result.

YOUR EFFORTS WILL PAY OFF


“But today, Jeremiah, I’m setting you free, taking the chains off your hands. If you’d like to come to Babylon with me, come along. I’ll take good care of you. But if you don’t want to come to Babylon with me, that’s just fine, too. Look, the whole land stretches out before you. Do what you like. Go and live wherever you wish. (Jeremiah 40:4 MSG)

Have you been in a place where you felt your efforts were in vain? All your attempts to bring order resulted in more torment and pain to yourself? The Prophet Jeremiah appears to me as one of those man who had to go to the front line of ministry battle and prophesy even when it meant death. He prophesied even when he know the outcome and how those he spoke to would receive the word.

In all this, he held on to the calling. He did not stop doing what God called him for. One day, the day came when the good options were presented to the prophet. “Today Jeremiah I am setting you free, taking the chains off your hands.” Those were generous words, words the prophet would never have expected in his difficult ministry and they were coming from the opposite camp.

Today I am here to announce the same words to you. The chains are being taken off your hands! Jeremiah now had choices, whether to go to Babylon or to stay in the land. He chose the land! You too will soon have choices! You stuck with God and He will stick with you. You gave the best of your years and He is not slothful to forget you labour of love!

With no chains in your hands you can do much more. What took you years to accomplish will be done in a few days. I bring a word of prophesy to you. It’s your season of release and your season of choices! Your efforts are paying off. I pray for the grace on your life to make the right choices that will be life fulfilling!

Declare this,
Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning. My mourning has ended!

HOW DO YOU DEFINE YOUR GOD?


The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower. (Psalms 18:2 KJV)

Normally we define our God by the places He Has shown Himself in our lives. Sometimes it is by the kind of love He has lavished us with. David the greatest poet who ever lived is not left out in his beautiful definition of His God. Until God becomes personal to you, you are still to encounter Him.

David calls Him my rock. Now this might seem straight forward to a rock thrower but what David means is the protection he experiences in God. No arrow of the enemy can penetrate His God! He is as resolute as a rock. No spear will blast him out as he hides in his God. Who is He to you?

He calls God his fortress. Now David is going deep with this one! A fortress is a military outfit specifically planned and put together to keep the enemy out. Whatever the enemy tries to penetrate, he is bound to fall into some dingy trap unknown to him. He is a strong fortress the devil has no ideas of penetration. I have seen this in my life.

He calls Him my deliverer! Just in case the enemy got too close, God is the strong and close body protector! One who breaks the enemy’s skulls at close range and ensures that your close circle of protection maintains its integrity. No demon is allowed to dance robot or borrowdale too close to you. It will pay with a cracked skull!

He calls Him my strength, my buckler and my horn of salvation. It is a wonderful thing to have a place to call my strength! Do you have one and is it God? A buckler is a small body protection shield, just in case the enemy puts something in, this small shield will protect the hand from injury. It will take the blow on David’s behalf.

How do you define your God or rather how have you encountered Him in the past? What names do you attribute to Him?

Declare this,
I am safe in His granite hideout! There is no enemy arrow that will reach me where I am ~ in God!
