1 Peter 2:10

who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

Many Christians aren’t confident or sure whether they have the mercy of God with them. Some live with a fear that for some reason God might not just be merciful unto them. Some spend so much time pleading with God for his mercy’s as thought he is reluctant or unwilling to show them mercies. 

Hebrews 4:16 says let us come boldly before the throne of grace, that we might obtain mercy and find grace in the time of need. Notice He didn’t say that we might ask for mercies, no! He said let’s us obtain. Come boldly to God’s throne and take what is already available. Simply Receive it. Now the book of Hebrews was written to Jewish believers who were at the verge of falling out of faith, So there was in need to ask them to return to God lest they deny the faith. 

But first Peter 2:10 is the reality of a believer, who has a grip in Christ. Once you had no identity, but now you have an identity as God‘s person. Once you didn’t have mercy, but now you have obtained mercy! Do you see your beautiful truths? In Christ you have the mercies of God. It’s a part of what God gave to you in Christ, and you must be confident about it. 

The one without mercy is the man without Christ. So if you need to see the ministry of God‘s mercy in your life, what do you do? Ask for it? No! You simply plead his mercies. Just like you plead the blood. You plead the sure mercies which do not disappoint. Confidently hold unto His mercies, because in Christ, you are the one who he has shown mercy. Confession: I have received mercy. Once I hadn’t received mercy, but now I have received mercy. I am the one He has shown mercy. I am blessed. TCF
