We each have our own set of circumstances that require us to call on God for his intervention. In addition to our personal problems, our country and other countries around the world need him to intervene because of the perceived takeover by a worldly organization set to take away the power of the people. If we don’t continue to seek God for his mercy daily, that powerful organization could take over, and our personal issues could become insurmountable and will pale in comparison to what they are now.
I came across a significant verse that caught my attention in the book of Romans. Paul wrote the book of Romans; God sent him to minister to us, the gentiles. Here is what he tells us to do:
and in order that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy. As it is written, “Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles, and sing to your name.” And again it is said, “Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people.” Romans 15:9-10
Did you catch that? Glorify God for his mercy! Here’s what “glorify” means: From G1391; to render (or esteem) glorious (in a wide application): - (make) glorify (-ious), full of (have) glory, honour, magnify.
I know we do this on Sunday with our praise and worship time, but it needs to be done daily, at every opportunity we get. We MUST glorify, honor, and magnify him! Reach out to him so he will have mercy on us.
