Key Verse

“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.” Lamentations 3:22

Text — Lamentations  3:17-23


A woman who did not believe in God fell sick and became paralyzed. She was taken from one hospital to another without receiving any cure. She became helpless and confused. One day, an evangelist came to town to hold crusade. Some members of this woman’s family heard about the crusade and decided to take the woman to the meeting. She was taken in to the hall of meeting on a stretcher and put at the back of the congregation. As the evangelist came up the podium, he announced that Jesus’ power is present to save, deliver and heal the sick. After delivering his powerful sermon, the man of God made an altar call for sinners who wanted to surrender their hearts to Christ. Having done that, he proceeded to pray for the sick.

Suddenly, the power of God struck the paralysed woman and she got up from the stretcher. She then walked straight to the podium, collected the microphone from the man of God and with tears in her eyes asked why God healed her despite the fact that she did not believe in Him. The man of God replied, “It is not by merit, it is of mercy.” This is what our Bible passage shows us. Through God’s mercies, we are not consumed, and His compassion never fails. Whatever you are going through in life, always remember that God’s mercies and compassion are available to help and save you. Trust Him and seek Him with all your heart.
