TEXT: Romans 9:23-24
And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory, Even us, whom he hath called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?
Whatever your endeavour, desire and aspiration maybe, human efforts alone cannot guarantee success no matter how hard a man tries. The scriptures says: “So, then, all depends, not on human wishes or human efforts, but on God’s mercy.”( Rom. 9:16 20cNT ). I have seen persons with great wisdom and intelligence whose endowments brought them nothing. It is the God factor in our race that helps us to succeed. It is the object of God’s grace and mercy that can make it.
Good news! We are objects of God’s mercies. If you have given your life to Jesus Christ and you have become a part of Him, God says, we are “the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared beforehand for glory, …Not only from among the Jews but from among the Gentiles also! ” (Rom. 9:23-24, 20cNT) Rom. 11:32). Oh what a wonderful thing.
You are not supposed to be going through life not sure of what life has in store for you. You are not supposed to be a victim of time and chance or of the probabilities of life. Those that are not born again can live like that. They can live by permutations. They can hope to be at the right place at the right time. That is why their anxieties and worries are understandable. If however you have given your life to Christ, you are not permitted to be anxious. In fact there is no reason why you should be. God’s mercy will surely crown your efforts with success. God’s mercy will take you from where you are to where you should be. You are an object of mercy. Trust in God’s mercy, plead God’s mercy and all things shall work together for your good in Jesus Name.
