Vessels of Mercy

Updated on January 18, 2011

Vessels of Mercy

And that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory..........Rom. 9:23

Some people choose to be made strong in their brokenness; others choose to remain the same. Many people including teenagers and children are rooted in memories of different tragedies, loss and griefs mangled in the meshing of smothered vulgarity, childhood robberies, computer chat lines, assaults of all sorts and molestation for starters to a full meal course. The main meal is filled with domestic violence, shattering glass, cursing insults, muffled sound of beatings, the cracking of belts, the squeaking of box springs, smothered screams for help, sickness, death of loved ones, business, career or marriage failure, debt, joblessness, homelessness etc. The cocktail of adulthood is pain, a lifetime of debauchery while the dessert is the cycle of pain from generations to generation.

When the shell that holds the life of a snail is crushed and broken to irreparable pieces, it reveals a meaty delicacy that serves nations, a meaty delicacy that provides protein for the body and a joy for the belly. Many people are broken through different ordeals and trials in life so that they might gain strength to help others going through similar situations.The bible says that God makes known the riches of His glory to the vessels of mercy because they have been prepared beforehand for His glory. These set of people are who the bible call vessels of mercy, they have endured hardship and persecutions, they have gone through trials and tribulations of this world and they have gone through all these so that they can show mercy to others who finds themselves in their type of boat. They have been shown mercy because they have come back from hell alive, they have endured hardship and have risen above it all, they are the ones that relates with pastors and teachers preachings on a Sunday morning and everybody can see their nodding heads as well as hear their heavy sighs in agreement with what has been said. They understand what it means by life's vampires because they have been saved from them all, they have been shown mercy and must show compassion and mercyunto others as well.

Trials, tribulations, persecutions, sickness, failures or rejections are God's ways of revealing His will and our different purposes on earth. He uses brokenness and rejection and turns it into directions for when one door closes God opens up a bigger and a better door. Please do not sit down and continue moping on your sorrows, get up and help someone else survive what you have endured. Become a part of the solution to somebody else's problems. Let God take your brokenness, your wounds and rehabilitates them to become the instruments of healing and life to others. Speak up loud and clear, break the cycle of going through the same pain from generations to generations for God has not allowed you to go through what you have gone and or going through right now for no reason, it is ll for a reason in the season you are in now. so be thankful for your experience because God is about to do something new, bigger than where you have been in your life before now. So run with the vision and run in the right direction where you have been led for in God's hands you have become an instrument to be used for His purpose and you have become a vessel of mercy unto others.

Be encouraged and Stay Connected to Jesus!
