Weekly Declaration

As believers, we are God’s children. A child of God will reflect His character. Each week, we focus on one scripture while highlighting a declaration (Who God is) and affirmation (Who we are as believers).

This week’s scripture is:

16 When Lot still hesitated, the angels seized his hand and the hands of his wife and two daughters and rushed them to safety outside the city, for the Lord was merciful.

Genesis 19:16 NLT


God is merciful.


I am worthy of compassion.

The Lord destined for Lot’s town, Sodom, to be destroyed due to the wicked nature of it’s people. Abraham interceded for the righteous that lived in Sodom and Gomorrah and the Lord acknowledged his request. Lot wasn’t a perfect man. He had flaws just like us, but he still received mercy from the Lord. Even in the middle of our messes, we are worthy of compassion.

A Prayer Starter…

Heavenly Father, You are merciful. Even with my past mistakes, you are full of compassion towards me. Lord, I am a mess without You. Help me to remember Your grace in the midst of my struggles… In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

S. Enoch
