THE MERCY OF NEHEMIAH-2
Nehemiah 1:11 “O Lord, I beseech thee, let now thine ear be attentive to the prayer of thy servant, and to the prayer of thy servants, who desire to fear thy name: and prosper I pray thee, thy servant this day, and grant him mercy in the sight of this man. For I was the king’s cupbearer”
Nehemiah 2:1 “And it came to pass in the month Nisan, in the twentieth year of Artaxerxes the king, that wine was before him: and I took up the wine, and gave it unto the king. Now I had not been beforetime sad in his presence.”
Beloved, your prayers must be specific and strategic. Nehemiah could have been praying that the king should not kill him or that the king should give him money to go repair the walls, but not at all. He simply ask for what opens the loins of kings, it is called mercy.
I call this particular type of mercy the “Mercy of Nehemiah”. My spiritual father once told me that you don’t just ask for mercy in the place of prayer, you should know who has obtained the type of mercy you want, and anchor your request around it, that is spiritual intelligence in prayer.
If you check through scriptures for example, you’ll see the mercy of Moses, that’s the mercy that preserves the life of a man even when others are killed. Every male child when Moses was born were killed on the order of Pharoah but mercy exempted Moses.
Look at what mercy did for Nehemiah:
Proverbs 3:4 “So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.”
Mercy makes you get things you are not even qualified for. Mercy makes men give to you what they will not give others. As we will see later, Nehemiah got everything he wanted and much more because he obtained mercy.
Friend, I stand in agreement with you today, and declare that mercy will preserve you. Mercy will open the heart of men to you. Mercy will take you to great places in Jesus name.
May you enjoy the “Mercy of Nehemiah” in Jesus name.
