Reading Time: 2 minutes

This morning, we will be looking at a couple of scriptures in 2 Corinthians 4

Verse 1:
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;

Okay, there is something we have to keep on seeing. “Seeing we have this ministry…” There is something we must keep in our perspective. It is the reason for the season. It is the reason for which God has laid on us individually. You see, you must come to a place where you have to lay hands on that which He has laid hold on you for.  You have to keep on seeing the assignment; it is the big picture. It is that which you have to focus on.

The moment Abraham began to see something else, there were issues.

“And Abram said, Lord God, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go childless…” (Genesis 15:2a KJV)

What you see matters a lot. What you dwell on will either fill you with energy and enthusiasm or drain you and leave you dry and weak.

That verse goes on to say “as we have received mercy.”

That is powerful. We are all products of His mercy. You need to lift up your hand right now and say, “Lord, thank you for your mercy!” The mercies of God endureth forever. It is by His mercy that we have not been consumed. His word says “I will have mercy upon whom I will have mercy and I will have compassion upon whom I will have compassion.” Thank God because you are a child of His mercy. Jesus took His blood as an offering, He was the offering and the offerer, and He went ahead into the Holy of Holies and sprinkled His blood on the mercy seat!

That is why God has been merciful to you and I. When I make the most costly mistakes in which I think I am a goner, the blood of Jesus begins to speak mercy! That blood speaks better things!

And the next thing it says is “we faint not”

How come we must refuse to faint, get wearied or give up? Two things there,

 1. Seeing what we have

 2. We have received mercy

There is something I have because of His mercy. I must focus on that and refuse to cooperate with the devil’s antics to get me depressed!

Here is amplified version of verse 1

Therefore, since we do hold and engage in this ministry by the mercy of God [granting us favor, benefits, opportunities, and especially salvation], we do not get discouraged (spiritless and despondent with fear) or become faint with weariness and exhaustion

Make up your mind. The fact that you are not in a relationship yet, should not get you discouraged in any way. Why? The mercies of God will find and locate you. The fact that your courtship got broken and you are so discouraged about it all is not enough to make you stop going to worship in His presence. The fact that you have issues in your marriage should not leave you despondent with fear! God’s mercy is what we have received and that mercy will bail you out and dispel darkness in your life!

To be continued tomorrow

I will see correctly. The light of God will dispel every darkness in me.

Lord, let your light dispel darkness in my life.


Meditate on God’s word.

1 Tim 3
