Romans 9:15 “For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion”.
Exodus 33:19 “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy”.
If you are a believer who lives in a household with those who haven’t accepted Christ as their Savior as yet, it can be trying at times; you go through different struggles because your focus can become caught up in deep intercession for their lives. It is at times like this that the scripture takes on a new meaning, “I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy” (Romans 9:15 KJV).
You pray for them at a heightened level of torment because you are persuaded and aware of the judgment after death; it is imminent. Hell is real to you and it is not a place where you want someone you love to be even for a moment. Better yet, you want them to experience the relational aspect you have with Jesus as well.
But Jesus said in His words that “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day” (John 6:44 KJV) and the best thing of all is that Jesus is known for His love of humanity.
Beloved despair not over their lives, but prayerfully put the situation into the hands of your loving Father and see Him do a work which no man can negate.
After all, someone prayed for you, didn’t they?
