Scripture:

Ps. 143:1 (ESV)
… Hear my prayer, O LORD; give ear to my pleas for mercy! …

When God gives mercy, He gives ability.

When we read that David prayed ”give ear to my pleas for mercy”, we can easily think he begged God not to be attacked by the enemy. And, yes, that might have been his thought, but we need to see that mercy means much more than that.

Let’s now see how Paul spoke about God’s grace.

1 Cor. 15:10
But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.

Paul saw the ability to do what he was called to do, as a result of God’s grace. It is evident that he didn’t look at grace as forgiveness or covering over, or that God should do the work instead of him.

We could define God’s grace as, ‘God’s ability at the end of our ability’.

When Paul, in 1 Cor. 15:10, spoke about God’s grace, he expressed that he realized he could not do it in his own ability, yet he could do the ‘impossible’ because of God’s ability.

When you ask God for mercy and grace, expect Him to give you power and wisdom to do what He has called you to do.
