Invoking God’s mercy.

“Save me from the hand of my brother Esau for I am afraid he will come and attack me and also the mothers with their children.” (Genesis 32:11)

Jacob was hunted by his past acts of fraud and deceit against his brother Esau, at the time he was about to meet him on his return back to his country. He was so afraid that Esau would take revenge for his past evil deeds by killing him. He however prayed to God to save him from his brother and God had mercy on him, God caused him to find favour before his brother and both were reconciled miraculously.

We sometime come to a point in our lives that we find ourselves in some sort of a quagmire and are unable to go forward. At such times, we need to recall our past and wattle any issues that we may come up with before God by invoking God’s mercy.

Jacob may not have been able to go beyond that point in his life but for divine intervention and mercy.

There is need also for anyone who finds himself in such situation to be very open and sincere before and with God. He must be willing to lay bare everything before God without holding anything back just as Jacob did when he told God that he was ‘a cheat and a fraud’ (which is the meaning of his name) when asked who he was (Genesis 32:27-28).

“Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” (Hebrew 4:16)

May Our God The Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
