Scripture: Psalm 51: 17. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Mercy is so important to our journey in destiny that ignoring it means being grounded and stagnated. It is therefore necessary for us to know how to access the mercy of God.

How to access the mercy of God?

Our anchor scripture in Ps.51;17 reveals two things:
1. Brokenness
2. contrite heart

1. Brokenness.

What do we mean by brokenness?

Brokenness is a state where the pride in man crashes, his self-will collapses, his stubbornness is surrendered and his sinful habits are given up!

You can’t see a broken man that kneeling down before the Lord is difficult for! He remains humble, the idea of I can do it by myself, I am intelligent and smart is all gone and he has no tolerance for sin any more.

Beloved, brokenness is the state that calls for God’s mercy easily and until we assume the posture of a broken person in the realm of the spirit we cannot access brokenness!

And many at times, God is willing to help us get to the point of brokenness and so permits some pains in our lives! Now it is in the middle of pains and frustration that many get broken and they can now become recipients of God’s mercy!


As long as you are full of your self forget it you cannot access God’s mercy. For the Bible said:

Psalm 34: 18. The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.

It was when Jacob detached himself from every other things that he could access the mercy of God.

The Bible said:

Genesis 32: 24. And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

There are times God will separate you from your job and every other thing that made it look as if God is not important to you, just to make you a candidate of His mercy.

Perhaps, you just lost your job or a contract and it seems as if your heaven is collapsing! I have a good news for you, fret not! God is gradually drawing you to the place where you can access mercy.

Oh someone broke your heart and you feel abandoned! Please cheer up because you are coming to that point where you can access mercy. Have you ever cried in life?

You will observe that at that point of crying it is very easy to say Lord have mercy on me because many times that cry stemmed out of a broken heart.

You will agree with me in most of our churches the people that testify most of the time are new converts! This is because they are the people who have positioned themselves to be recipients of God’s mercy.

They come with brokenness and demanding for mercy, before you know it they have it but there are several believers who are in church for donkey number of years yet no testimony.


Beloved brokenness is a must to receive mercy. As for Jacob in order to have permanent dependency on the staff and not Himself any more, God has to reach out to his thigh muscle and he began to limp and depend on a staff.

Genesis 32: 25. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

Beloved that rod is Jesus Christ! God wants us to perpetually depend on Jesus not on ourselves to continuously access mercy. Jesus was broken for us as He went to the cross(1Cor.11:24). To remain a candidate of God’s mercy therefore is to be humble and remain broken

*Remember this* : Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision to spend eternity with God starts now by surrendering to the Lord Jesus.

Prayer points;

– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Father I receive grace to be broken and remain broken in the name of Jesus.

Prophetic Declaration:
– I declare every power that makes you bend towards stubbornness and arrogant self-will loose their grips over you now in the name of Jesus.
– May the God of mercy bring you to the point where you can encounter mercy in the name of Jesus.

From your brother Alex
God bless you.
