Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalm 103:10(KJV); He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). This is a divine law.
There is nothing that men do in the flesh and in sin that does not deserve death. Sometimes, people downplay what amounts to sin or assume that certain sins deserve a lighter punishment.
This is not so, child of God. Even telling a lie is enough to kill you. The story of Ananias and Saphira is proof of this (Acts 5:1-11).
Aaron stood next to Moses as he struck a rock twice; he died for it (Numbers 20: 10-13). Uzzah touched the covenant box to keep it from falling, he died for it (2 Samuel 6:3-7).
Sin leads to death. However, when a man understands the mercy of God, that man will realise that God does not reward us according to our iniquities.
David could boldly make this statement because he found grace in the eyes of God. He killed a man and took his wife but his life was spared. It was a terrible thing to do but mercy prevailed over judgment.
God wants you to awaken to the consciousness of His mercy.
The Bible reveals that these mercies are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-23).
With every rising of the sun, fresh mercies are released upon you to make you a better person; to strengthen you, and to teach you how to overcome. Embrace God’s mercy!

PRAYER: Father I thank you for this day. Thank you because your mercies today are new; they are fresh and they are available for me. Day after day, it is these mercies that I see. I receive them as my portion in Christ and live my life in the understanding that your goodness towards me is not because I deserve it but because in all your dealings towards me, love leads the way. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
