He Is A Merciful God Who Shown Me Mercy When I Did Not Deserve It

I remember how wicked I used to be back then and there were times when I even doubted if there is any God somewhere, but I will never forget how he rescued me from losing my job. I was very young and foolish for that matter by engaging myself in the most stupid conduct which resulted in my arrest.

What happened was I attended a scene and on arrival, I noticed a burning truck right inside the road, and members from the fire department were already on the scene battling it. I managed to identify the truck driver and immediately begin to interview him, and my colleague on the other hand, while I was busy with the driver, picked up some items from the burning truck and stuff them inside our vehicle for himself.

To be honest I was not aware of what he was doing and I only realized that he has helped himself when I climbed into our vehicle, and that’s when I saw these stolen items right inside the vehicle. I asked him about those items and he said, the owner of the truck has insured his goods so the insurance will pay, and out of my foolishness I climbed off the vehicle and picked up some items for myself also.

To cut long story short we were both arrested and I believed in my heart it was over. We managed to seek a traditional doctor who gave us a concoction which we were supposed to place in the middle of the road for a vehicle to run it over and our case will be squashed, so we did exactly what we were told, but come to the day of court things did not turn the way we were hoping and the matter was proving to be more serious than we expected.

I then spoke to my attorney and pleaded guilty to the crime I was charged for. The presiding officer with the grace and mercy of the Almighty God gave me a wholly suspended sentence of five years, and my employer also fined me and I retained my work. I deserved the harsh punishment and the worst of them all but he did not allow me to suffer because not only I was going to be affected.

He pardoned me because of the innocent children of mine who had nothing to do with my foolishness. He showed me mercy because of my innocent wife who was about to suffer for nothing she took no part in. I now remember how he pardon Moses who slaughtered a man in Egypt and hid him under the ground. I also remember how the bible on Jude 1: 9 (KJV) tells us how God fought with Satan for the body of Moses who slaughtered a man in Egypt. What about King Solomon an Adulterer of many women? Or what about Abraham who lied about his relationship with Sarah?

He is a merciful God and if he can forgive me for every evil that I have done, he can also forgive and show you mercy, because he is not a respecter of person, but he is the Almighty God who loves us all and that is the sole reason he sent his only begotten Son for the purpose we may find a way back to him. Thank you Father for your mercy and grace.
