Do Not Forsake Your Own Mercy
By Russ Walden
The Father says today, do not forsake
your own mercy. As face answers to face in a glass, so the heart of man answers to the heart of man. What you see in others creates a composite reflection in your own life. When criticism and complaint constitute the dominant filter through which you view
others, you set yourself up for the assault of the enemy. It is not about being right. It is not about being a self-appointed arbiter of another's actions. Let the law of kindness be in your mouth today. Let words of mercy govern all your dealings with those
around you. As you sow kindness and walk in mercy, you will find yourself stepping into upgrade. Are you ready for an upgrade in My kingdom? It is available as you accord to others the patience and sweetness of spirit you wish to be accorded in your own life.
Look for opportunities to let people off the hook. When you filter the actions of everyone around you in terms of propriety and spirituality, you set yourself at naught and shut down the flow of My blessings in your life. Remember this - I
send rain on the just and the unjust. While you were yet unlovely and an enemy of the cross, I gave Heaven's Best to redeem and recover you to Myself. Extend the same clemency toward those who offend and insult you. Let love's response determine what you do
next. It is not about getting what you deserve or what others have coming. It is about progressing every day into a deeper place of love and compassion. Love is kind. Love is lenient. Love tolerates the intolerable knowing that nothing escapes My attention
and I will reward you when you choose to reflect My character and not your own flawed perspective toward the people that displease you most.
