Cause & Effect: God’s Promises and Mercy at Work
Jun 27th, 2021 by bryanhudson
Psalm 37:3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. 5 Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.
”Cause and Effect" is a relationship between events or things, where one is the result of the other or others. This is a combination of action and reaction. Something happens (a cause) that leads to an effect.
Five things are true:
1. We have everything to do with outcomes.
2. We have much to do with outcomes.
3. We have nothing to do with outcomes.
4. Things are not always as they appear. Losing is winning.
5. We need MERCY & FAVOR
It is important to keep yourself in a healthy perspective.
Being diligent is essential, but understand that you are not the “master of your fate” or the “captain of your soul.”
Your are neither helpless nor all powerful
Mercy is the gift before and after faith. We think we’re “working it,” but the mercy of God is helping us more than we realize!
Favor is a product of mercy
