My mercy will overrule judgment.
James 2:13 (WEB)
For judgment is without mercy to him who has shown no mercy.
Mercy triumphs over judgment.
The Message Bible says... Kind mercy wins over harsh judgment every time. The law of mercy and grace actually overrules the law of judgment. I don't know how you feel when you think about this promise, but I am thankful to God that His mercy does indeed win the day!
I am so glad that my God and Father does not treat me as my sins deserve, but is rich in His mercy towards me. Every day I get to experience His new mercies! (Lamentations 3:22-23) In Matthew 5:7, Jesus tells us Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (KJV)
I am painfully aware that in my own life, I need all the mercy that I can get. So if I want mercy for myself, I better be a dispenser of mercy to everyone I meet too! God loves mercy and He loves it when His kids are mercy-full. My prayer is that we would be a people who continue to walk in the amazing love and mercy that God bestows on us, so that we can be a vessel of His mercy to others.
May we actually love showing mercy (Micah 6:8) to those who don't deserve it and be an expression of our heavenly Dad's mercy to all those we meet. (Luke 6:36) ...Even to those drivers who may cut off us on the highway! :)
The mercy of our God and Father will triumph over every form of judgment in your own life. Believe it. Receive it. Love it... and give it away!
