Mercy and truth have met together;
Righteousness and peace have kissed.
11 Truth shall spring out of the earth,
And righteousness shall look down from heaven.
12 Yes, the Lord will give what is good;
And our land will yield its increase.
I come today to declare to you that what you could not achieve by your own effort, mercy will produce it in your life. What is lacking in our world today is the absence of mercy and truth. God wants to get you out of your darkness and translate you into His light.
There are many of you who have been trying to fight your battle yourself; today you need to rest your case and put it on the door of mercy. Mercy will say no even if truth says yes. I believe tonight whatever the enemy has taken from you, this is the day of your restoration. They have laughed at you, they have played down on you, they have thought of you as no consequential, they have taken from you your right; I declare that you will be restored. Your joy will be restored. Your health will be restored. Your position will be restored. In 1 Kings 3:16-27 . The real mother of the child spoke out of mercy and mercy granted her miracles. I declare that mercy will speak for you.Our world wants to trample on those on the floor; they will not give to you what you are entitled to. We live in a world that kills our wounded but mercy will speak for you.
35 years ago, I pastored a young boy who was about 12 years old. This boy was brought from the village to stay with his uncle. His uncle was a rich man and brought this boy to town, put him in school but the wife gave him troubles. She said this boy must not go to school like my children; let him be washing plates; let him be sweeping floor. That is his lot. The issue caused trouble between the woman and the husband. Until one day the man came from work and the woman said to the boys’ uncle you must choose between me and this boy. I don’t want him in this house any longer. Ladies and Gentlemen, I am here to tell you that where your voice cannot answer; the voice of God will answer for you. Where your leg is not long enough, Gods leg will carry you. The matter was so strong and the man wanted to save his marriage. He went and hired a house outside for this boy and signed an agreement for somebody to teach him to be an electrician. So the boy was an apprentice and became subsequently an electrician. He couldn’t go to school but he had to go and learn electrical wiring. In the process of time!!!
There is someone here whom God is processing their time. When He has finish with you; you will come out like finished product. You will no more be raw material. In the process of time, the boy became known wiring houses for people. He became a contractor to Nigeria Electric Power Authority (NEPA).
Your set back is indeed a set up to give you a set on. They said you cannot go forward, they said who knows this one, they said push him aside; they will be surprised because God will magnify His name. They have pushed you around enough; it is your time to shine. I am not here to entertain you; I have come so that you might be set free because the stones which the builders have rejected shall become the main thing.
In the process of time, the woman had a serious quarrel with the husband and packed out of the house and her children rented an apartment for her. One day she saw this boy that she threw away from the house some 30 years behind. When she saw the boy, she screamed and said. So they have sent you again to know where I am, they have sent you to trace me. The boy who is now a man said mummy, mummy, you can never be a tenant in my house. I am the owner of this whole estate; I came to see how things are going and I will not allow you to pay any rent but stay free. Your enemy is about to throw up. I enlist you to surprise your generation. In the place of defeat let there be victory. You will not be joined with the dead in 2013; mercy will protect you.
